With Regards,

Dear Praba,

By your age and spectacle correction, you can surely consider LASIK.

However, whether to undergo the procedure or not comes from the detailed eye examination with a good doctor.

For example, I have recommended LASIK for someone with even -10.00 D and advised against it for someone with - 2.00 D.  Hence, powers do not give an idea regarding eligibility, unless really high powers above -12.00 D
