Usually after surgery to treat myopic vision, the eye is capable of stabilizing for life, however there are some cases of re myopic re-vision after surgery due to a number of causes and factors. To limit this re-myopic condition pay attention to a number of problems before and after surgery.

Some eye surgery methods for refractive errors have proven to be effective, safe and very rarely have complications, each of which is suitable for certain subjects, of which lasik surgery is quite popular and preferred. However, there are some notes about refractive surgery, with lasik surgery the purpose of regaining clear vision and reducing the dependence of the disease on vision-regulating devices such as frame glasses, contact lenses, not helping the eyes to completely lose myopicism. In addition, after surgery, patients are still at risk of re-myopity caused by many factors. To avoid re-approaching, before and after surgery should pay attention to some of the following issues

1. Before surgery

  • Regular examination should be done every 6 months before the decision to have surgery at least 1 year: One of the causes of myopopity is due to the time of nearsy-stable surgery (the nearsity increases no more than 0.75 diop within 1 year), patients often do not have the habit of regular re-examination, so when the doctor prescribes to exploit the history of assessment the price of stability of the near-difficulty is determined correctly. Therefore, before surgery, it is recommended to have regular check-up to monitor the near-condition.
  • It is necessary to go to reputable medical facilities for advice to exclude cases with contrainations to this surgical method: Refractive surgery has many methods each suitable for certain subjects. Lasik surgery is common, safe and effective, but it is not for all patients with myopic vision, so to know exactly which method is suitable for careful examination, because if there is a later indication, the consequences are unpredictable for our eyes.

  • For those over 40 years of age, surgery is not recommended: Because people over 40 years of age, the eyes will age quickly, the possibility of cataracts in the future should be treated at the same time as cataract replacement surgery.
