Hello,

Let me clearify.

Manila degeneration is a disease of the retinal tissue in the back of the eye.

Lasik is a procedure used on the front surface of the eye the cornea

So that patients can see without to assess.

So Lasik will not improve macula degeneration.

By any chance is she having cataract surgery?

no

I meant macula degeneration.

as well as glasses in the above answer.

So no neither lasik nor the restore lens will help macula degeneration.
