Is it suitable for me?
The Excimer Laser is approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to correct nearsightedness up to -12.00D with -4.00D of astigmatism, and farsightedness from +1.00 to +6.00 with or without astigmatism. (Diopter, symbol D, is the measurement of the refractive error. A negative D value indicates nearsightedness and a positive D value indicates farsightedness.). With the advent of more sophisticated procedures for higher degrees, Dr Khalil generally reserves the LASIK to degrees lower than -7.00D and +6.00D. These are not absolute figures, as occasionally there can be better options for these intermediate degrees. Below Dr Khalil outlines his exact suitability criteria for operating LASIK.
