You do not have an understanding of the procedure adequate to make up your mind. Life and medicine do not come with guarentees. You may still need glasses, you may need additional surgery, there is a small risk of damage to the eye due to infection, bleeding or scar formation. I suggest you get a second opinion.  Also use the search feature and archives here to read about lasik and complications.

Hi Doctor,

I have wore glasses from my childhood at my 3 years of age. At 23, I have undergone LASIK for my -12 and -9 myopia. Again now at 27 age, I am wearing glasses for about -7 and -4. Still increasing. Not sure how Lasik helped. Now what can I do to stop this. Please advise Sir...
