Hello doctor,

I am 23 years old. I have around -1.5 Diopters power vision in both eyes. I want to undergo Contoura vision or Lasik surgery for eyeglasses removal. I also have a minor lens subluxation in both eyes. This lens subluxation has not increased in the past three years, and my refractive error is constant. Can the subluxated lens be a problem for successful Lasik? Please advise.



Welcome to icliniq.com,

I understand your concern.

If subluxation is more, then the refractive error will definitely change. However, this can be confirmed on dilated examination. Did you get any tests done to check for eligibility for Lasik surgery that includes corneal topography and thickness, vision tests, eye pressure, and retina evaluation? PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) or ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) can also be done. I suggest you consult a local refractive surgeon for examination. I hope this helps. Take care.
