lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses
doctor will perform few tests (schirmer test, pentacam and fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear.
Success rate of lasik is over 96%. Side effects may vary from minimal like mild dryness, dalk, haloes, glare to severe like infection (very rare).
a. Avoid face/head wash for 1 week
b. Avoid swimming /water sports for 6 weeks
c. Avoid eye make up for 6 weeks
cost: depends on type of lasik which varies from 25000 for standard lasik to 1.10 lacs for smile lasik
