Question
Hi Doctor
I just want to find out if my 8 year old son can have laser eye treatment to remove glasses. His number is .75 however due to my heredity I am sure his number will go up in future. please advise
much thanks

Answer
Dear JAINE

tHANK YOU for the enquRY

LASIK surgery is NOT advised on 8 year olds and since you say that because of hereditery factor his eye number will go up so even if you operate today and number goes up he will reuire surgery again so how many times will you get him operated that is the reason why we wait till the number stabilizes or till he is 18 years old and then only think of lasik surgery till then better reading habits and also proper diet with lots of green leafy vegetables will help stabilize his number

if you any further questions please revert back to me on my email address at "manulasereye@gmail.com"
