Generally lasik surgery doesn't cause sight back if your having blindness from birth then it's not possible, but if retina is given then there is every chance of getting back your eye sight.

Hello. First of all, -4.5 dioptre of refractory error (glasses) do not result from excessive computer work. It is just simple myopia. Yes you can go for lasik or other more advanced similar laser procedures. No need to worry. After surgery eye sight will not be affected due to your longer screen time of 10-12 hours. But you will have some dry eye problem after lasik, so you will have to take more care due to your job profile. Certain drops post surgery along with certain eye exercises, intermittent rest and frequent blinking will help you for the same. You can reach me out anytime for any query relating to surgery and for discussing your concerns in detail. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Regarding how long you will have to take the medications- you will need to speak with the Dr. who prescribed them since he would have examined and prescribed accordingly. And just for 2 days there won't be any effects on your lasik surgery outcome do continue your lasik medications as advised. Do make sure you have informed your own lasik surgeon also about these medications.

Due to the chemicals in chlorinated water and the particles found in salt and fresh water bodies, irritation, redness and corneal tissue infection is a high possibility immediately after lasik eye surgery. Interactions with these bodies of water can slow the healing process or cause post-op damage. Many lasik centers typically allow patients to shower normally after just 1-2 weeks. Unless you vision is abnormal, there is pain, or some other sign that there might be something wrong. Please contact me over a call so that I can provide you the proper guidance for this problem.

Lasik surgery is not permanent removal of eye numbers. Take homoeopathic medicine to control it and improve it.
