I am a 32 year old male with amblyopia in my left eye. I had eye surgery twice when I was a kid. I've worn eyeglasses off and on since then. I had close to perfect eyesight on my right eye until a little over a year ago when I started having issues.. I have developed astigmatism and it seems that even with corrective lenses it is getting worse. As you may understand I am very worried. I need to know what my options are. Can I get lasik surgery on my good eye alone.Is that an option ?
Lasik is likely not a good option if you only have one eye. Go see a cornea specialist to make sure you don't have any corneal issues. You may do well with a hard contact lens if your astigmatism is really high and glasses don't address it. You need to have this discussion with an ophthalmologist though after a full exam.
