Laser Eye Surgery/Doubts in Lasik Treatment

Question
Hi,
My name is Shahul Hameed. I am working as a software engineer. I am wearing spex (nearsighted left eye:-3.75 & right eye:-2.75) for the last 10 years. I am having an idea to do a lasik treatment. But before the scanning, doctor is suggested me to do barrage laser treatment (for hole/scratches in both the eyes).  I am in confusion to do that.

Just reply for the certain questions,

1) What is the root cause for Eye hole/scratches?
2) Is this mandatory to do that? If we didn't take this treatment, what is the effect?
3) Is there ay possibility of Minor scratches to be increased (major)?
4) For my sight power, Lasik treatment is mandatory or optional?
5) What are the precautions i should follow, if this same should not happen again in the future?

Answer
Dear SHAHUL HAMID

tHANK YOU for the enquRY

1) What is the root cause for Eye hole/scratches?
ROOT CAUSE IS YOUR MYOPIC REFRACTORY ERROR WHICH STRETCHES THE RETINA AND CAUSES GAPS

2) Is this mandatory to do that? If we didn't take this treatment, what is the effect?
YES IT IS MANDATORY OTHERWISE THE GAPS WILL INCREASE AND RETINA MAY GET DETACHED

3) Is there ay possibility of Minor scratches to be increased (major)?
YES THAT IS THE REASON WHY THIS LASER IS ADVISED OTHERWISE IT WILL INCREASE AND MAY BE LEAD TO COMPLETE RETINA GETTING DETACHED

4) For my sight power, Lasik treatment is mandatory or optional?
IT IS OPTIONAL AND YOUR VWISH TO GET LASIK DONE OR NO

5) What are the precautions i should follow, if this same should not happen again in the future? PERIODIC EYE EXAMINATION NOT FROM OPTICIAN BUT YOUR EYE SURGEON AND CONSULTANT AND BETTER WORKING ENVIRONMENT LIKE READING IN PROPER LIGHT AND OFCOURSE LOTS OF GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES
