If you have undergone an eyesight treatment against myopia, would you recommend it? What do I need to know before I get it?

Given the real Risiko on halos and small risiko of irreversible failed operations which makes it worse off, I will only consider this if I don’t really see anything without glasses, so at-6 A-7 diopter or stronger eyeglass lenses.Then I would first try to solve it with contact lenses, less irreversible risks.

Someone I know well was considering for a myopia of-7 diopter to undergo such an operation.A part of the cornea, the cornea, is flattened, causing the cornea to become less convex,

And the light back on the retina is focused instead of before.

It results in a thinner cornea.
Fortunately he did not do it, he has in the last few years developed a cornea deviation in which a thinner cornea would unpack disastrous, a keratoconus

I have been offered the opportunity but I have diabetes and that creates greater risks.

And you should ask yourself if you are willing to take those risks.

I was not prepared to do so.After all, when it goes wrong you can eventually even become blind to the eye. But other complications can also arise that will make you look worse rather than better. Infections are the biggest culprits here and you also get antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs after the surgery. The probability of this is about 1 to 4.000 and therefore quite small but your medical health affects this. Do you want to take the risk?

There is also the chance that you need reading glasses after surgery.That is because the cornea is made thinner which corrects the lens in your eye but the lens alone is not enough. There are spikes in the eye that make the lens wider and narrower, and myopia is also caused by it. Your eyes can steer the lens less well. By making the lens thinner, you move the problem from distance to close.

There is also a chance of scarring on your cornea which will cause poor vision.And some other complications. But there are many companies that focus on these operations because there is a lot of money to earn because myopia occurs in many people. And many eye clinics find the risks acceptable.

In addition, these operations are usually not reimbursed by the insurer and so you do not have a strong party on your side that protects your interests.Good seeing without glasses is not a medical necessity.

Laser eye Surgery.Dangerous or not?

The problem with this treatment is that it is quite new and one does not know well what the result is in the long run. However, you have to be careful with the potential risks.For me, the decision was ultimately simple because after a treatment I needed a reading glasses. And for my work I have to read a lot and I am sometimes busy with very small parts. I see that all fine at the moment and I do not want to miss that. So after some thought chose not to take treatment.

It delivers too little…

Just look at how old you are: set 30 years.

Then it is on average still 50 years life.So contact read wear, or glasses, or not.

I do not know the figures of the risks, which are perhaps too googling.
The risks of 50 years of wearing contact lenses are significantly more dangerous than the risks of a one-off laser treatment.Think I hear, I don’t know.

The risks of 50 years of brilwear are not great if you are taking plastic glasses then.Of glass They are there though.

If you have assessed those risks, you weigh them against the luxury and prettiality of just immediately always being able to see everything well sharp.Don’t first put lenses in or glasses on, but just watch….

So risks outweigh luxury.No one can do that for you than yourself.

Lasic is the method that (currently) gives the least risk and the fastest cure (this in contrast to scratches).
Every operation involves a risk and one must consider whether it pays to be worthwhile.Informing themselves well in advance is a must.
One more thing: after a certain age (45 -50) It is not recommended for myopia because you will still have to wear reading glasses.
It is quite possible that a new better method will be developed within a short time.So, regularly check the medical progress in this industry and do not allow themselves to be persuaded by sales pitches.

My brother has had one eye dealt with (then with the scratches method).The deviation was not very large, just enough to oblige him to wear glasses.

I also thought about it (I have 2 x-4), but it did not do it anyway.My brother had told me that his vision was improved, but that the intervention did not give him an eagle look. He can do so for several years without glasses, but still he has a deviation between-0.5 and-1.0. In addition, the operation will have to be carried out again.

I’ve worn years of lenses, but after my 40th I had more than advantage (too dry eyes, need for bifocal lenses and glasses) and I left it for what it was.If they couldn’t get the much smaller deviation from my brother to 0, they wouldn’t be able to do that with my-4 ‘s.

So I only wear lenses in the pool.Of Kruidvat.

By practicing with stroboscopic glasses, an ophthalmologist got his one eye from minus 5 to minus 3. That ophthalmologist did that because he did not believe in it.

I have now been training on such an eye to improve my eyes.
