Dear SHARMILA

OFcourse you can go ahead with your LASIK procedure and since you have quite moderate eye numbers it will be better that you get operated with better technology also ofcourse i need to know your other eye parameters to know which procedure will be best suited for your eyes.
LASIK done with proper technology suited to your eyes has all advantages and defintely complete power goes off and there is NO question of increase in power, so LASIK is good option for you
