I have been wearing contact lens for the last 12 years. Recently, they started getting uncomfortable. So, I stopped using them and got a LASIK consultation with a Pentacam. I have attached the reports taken two days after stopping contact lenses and three weeks after stopping contact lenses. One thing that pops out is the anterior elevation in the left eye. My surgeon says that I have a slightly higher than normal chance of developing post-LASIK ectasia, but it is unlikely. I want a second opinion before I take the plunge. I have no complaints at the moment, except for not being able to wear contact lens for long. Also, I hate glasses.
