Q) Vision Correction Options for High Hyperopia and Some Astigmatism?
I'm a 23 year old female with a glasses prescription of +600 / -025 x 15 and +750 / -175 x 168. My vision is something that has affected me my whole life, socially and work-wise. I have been told I not a candidate for PIOL because my anterior chamber depth is too small (around 2.5mm). This has led me to consider a partial correction with lasik/lasek/wavefront or multifocal IOL. I want to do what I can to improve my situation now, but wouldn't want to make things worse. Thanks for you feedback.
A) Vision Correction Options for Highly Farsighted Individuals
LASIK is not a great option for you given your prescription. You could undergo correction with IOL surgery and then if needed, have an enhancement with LASIK or PRK if you are really bothered by your vision. I would recommend that you seek the care of a specialist in both areas, be fully educated about the results following the procedure. Achieving wonderful, life changing results is definitely probable but risks do exist and you must understand them as well.
