Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Any corneal or laser refractive surgeon (ophthalmologist) would be happy to evaluate her, I'm sure. Does she have significant nystagmus still?
Yes, She would very much like lacer correction, but unsure if this is an option. Our eye doctor states it is risky.
If she still has significant nystagmus, then yes it would be quite risk unfortunately. To undergo laser vision correction surgery, the patient needs to be able to hold their eye very still while looking at a target for the surgery to be safe and effective. If she still has significant nystagmus, it would make it very difficult for her to do so and therefore would probably not be a safe option for her.
Do you recommend ophthalmologist that do this procedure?
I do not have specific knowledge of ophthalmologists across the country, so I couldn't recommend anyone specifically unfortunately (just in the local area where I work)
Thanks for your help. I appreciate you being candid.
