Question: I am 37 year old Radiologist with astigmatism and myopia 5.00. Consider my occupation and working in front of screen on CT and MRI for more then 10 hours a day do you recommend LASIK Eye Surgery.
Answer: If you and your eyes are otherwise healthy, have an acceptable corneal thickness, shape and curvature, adequate tear film quality and quantity you should be a good LASIK candidate. Many people spend their work hours on display terminals and do quite well with LASIK. But, the only way to tell is by having a thorough examination and consultation with a top LASIK Surgeon. The key will of course be your ocular health, condition and tear film integrity.
