Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Many people who are near sighted with astigmatism like yourself who are not candidates for LASIK can safely have PRK with the same final visual outcome. Did your surgeon mention this?
he did but at the time there wasn't anyone in the uk performing this procedure
intacs are good for mild myopia, very good for keratoconus but not so great for astigmatism.
I really think that PRK, even though you have to go through about 3 days or so of pretty extensive post-op pain, is your best option. There must be someone somewhere in the entire UK doing PRK. Heck, a place that does LASIK, using different nomograms to program their equipment, can use the exact same laser and setup to do PRK if they want to....
ok so maybe not worth the bother, i wanted rid of my glasses but if it doesn't correct every defect then its a none starter, is that what your saying or would it be worth having a consultation
That is what I am saying. Intacs, if you have any significant astigmatism intacs is not for you....PRK would work just fine if you can find a place to do it for you. Does this make sense?
I see you have gone offline......
