I am 23 years have had a detached retina in my left eye . Legally blind in that eye . My right eye is my only good one I have left . But i cant keep going through life with contatcs keep bothering me . But I am scared of somehting happing with the laser to cause me to go blind . MY question I know there is always risk . but With Prk is there a high risk of retinal detachments with this and have u ever seen them with the laser ? Also I dont think a IOL would be smart do u agree ?
Thanks for ur input . It just sucks being so young with one eye and that I i cant get any good contacts tried everything . been evey were my eyes cant tolerate them anymore . I had prohalytci laser 360 done on my good eye to stregnthen my retina . I am just researching everything but I was thinling if they could do Prk shade some diopters do u think its possible being -13 to get me to 20/30 bc with contatcs I am 20/25 but WHat are the big risk with PRK and do u ever see them . IT just sucks bc I dont know what to do bc I cant keep wioth contatcs but PRk would be great but dont want a retina tear :( and every docotr agrees with u on the IOL that it ould be crazy but the prk they dont see me a big risk even though I know with my luck
Do u know how to find the best person to do PRK ? and do u recommend doing a PRk on my high myopia ? or is ther any new technology that u know of ? How long do ur patients have to wait to see good with PRK
Last question I have is whats the doctors name that u refer to patients
I have another question . I have read online if u have higher myopia its a longer time of recovery with PRK ? Also PRk do u have to be out of ur contatcs before surgery like a week or anything ? I developed PVD like 5 months ago and still have floaters will that mess me up with PRK or does it matter ?
