Title: Is Lasik Right For You? - Arohi Eye Hospital

Lasik is one of the most wonderful innovations
that science has brought to us, with the eyes
being able to see clearer, better, and brighter
than one could see with glasses or contact
lenses, only with the help of a simple 10 minute
laser surgery! Lasik is generally considered a
very safe procedure that has brought only
benefits to all for years and years to come. But,
there could also be very rare chances of side
effects for some, such as dry eyes, glare, halos,
double vision, and astigmatism. While these side
effects are very rare, it is important that you
know about them, because you should always be
ready to face any circumstances, if they arise,
even if you are getting operated by the best
Lasik specialist in Mumbai. Despite this, you
must also know whether Lasik is a good option for
you. While Lasik definitely is the best option
for every candidate who wants to get rid of his
eye number, there are certain conditions that
may hinder you from getting operated. So, what
are they?
Your age The minimum age for patients who can opt
for Lasik surgery is 18 years. No one younger
than that age can be provided the treatment,
because the early young age always has the eye
number changing from time to time. And, if this
is the case, the treatment cannot be possible
because it wont be possible to decide on the
right IOL implant to be inserted into the eye.
Thus, it is very important that you are more than
18 years of age, and even importantly, you must
have a stable number for at least two years.
Also, if you are more than 40 years of age,
Lasik is not advisable because around this age,
the eyes start to change and a condition called
presbyopia may set in soon, making it difficult
to see the objects near and Lasik wont be able
to correct this condition. But yes, surgeons may
perform monovision laser surgery, which will
leave the non-dominant eye slightly nearsighted
so that the patient can see the objects that are
close to them. Also, ages 40 and older may bring
many other eye problems like cataracts and
glaucoma, which cannot be solved with the help
of Lasik.
Your health To be able to have Lasik performed on
you, it is absolutely important that you have an
overall good health. Why, you may ask. Well,
while it is obvious that you must have no eye
issues like glaucoma, cataracts, optic nerve
diseases, or retinal diseases, you must also have
good health in terms of your heart, blood
pressure, and sugar. If you have any problems
like heart diseases, low or high blood pressure,
or diabetes, you wont be suggested Lasik
surgery. This is because in such conditions, you
may be on certain medications which may render
you immunocompromised, thus keeping you from
being a Lasik candidate. Thus, you must always
let your surgeon know about any kinds of health
problems you are having, and all the medications
you are on. Your capability of accepting risk As
mentioned above, Lasik, just like any other
surgery, has certain possibilities of side
effects or complications. If you are capable of
accepting these risks, you may get ready to
undergo Lasik. But if not, you must avoid going
in for the operation, because even in the rarest
condition, you must always be ready for the
worst. So, unless and until you are sure to face
any possible conditions, you shouldnt undergo
the surgery. A good candidate for Lasik is
willing to accept reasonable risk, and the
possibility of even the rarest side effects. So,
if you are ready to face any and every outcome
confidently, and if you are of the right age
with a stable eye number, having an acceptable
eye and body health, you could opt for Lasik.
And, when you are ready to go in for it, you are
advised to walk in at Arohi Eye Hospital, where
you can have only the best Lasik specialist in
Mumbai taking charge of your condition and
operation. ALSO READ Before Undergoing Lasik
