Lasik for severe myopia?

Hi doctor I have a 6 Dioptres of Myopia and 1 Dioptre of astigmatism and I was wondering if after Lasik my eyes will be 6/6 again. I have been told by some people that because of my severe myopia it would be 6/9 or 6/12 . Thank you very much

Hi Ahmed

Whilst there are no guarantees, there is a very good chance that you will end up with 6/6 vision following your Lasik surgery. This is providing you can see 6/6 with your glasses on as laser eye surgery can only give you the same vision as you currently achieve with your spectacles on.

The best way to find out what your chances are of achieving 6/6 vision is to speak with the treating surgeon.
