IS THALASSEMIA MAJOR PATIENTS SUITABLE FOR LASIK EYE SURGERY ?

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on October 3, 2011 at 10:55 AM



There are patient who are good candidate for LASIK eye surgery, and I am one of them. Just got my vision corrected recently through VISX Custom LASIK (Microkeratome) as my degree for both eyes are within the moderate range -4.00.



Whether you're a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery, you will need to undergo an initial or baseline evaluation by your eye doctor to determine if you are a good candidate. Also inform your doctor of any past and present medical and eye conditions. Medications you may be taking, including over-the-counter medications and any medications you may be allergic to.



Always inform your Thalassemia doctor of anything you intend to do or take, including LASIK eye surgery. More so your ophthalmologist consultant doing the Lasik for you will want a letter or memo from your Thalassemia doctor who knows your condition. Just to ensure you are safe for the procedure, as there will always be some risks in any surgery. Plus if anything goes wrong during the surgery, the ophthalmologist will be the one responsible for it.



Some ophthalmologist may even take it further by calling your doctor and inform regarding the surgery procedure that you will be going through. Once confirm that you are suitable for it, you can book for the time and date for the lasik surgery.



That's basically it, hope this post might help you a little if you are planning to get your LASIK eye surgery done (:

Yesterday I had LASIK laser eye surgery. In short, this is where they take the front part of your eye off, burn a pattern on the surface of the underlying cornea, and put the front bit back on again.

What a great article, I read all of it then i am satisfied to say that It?s a terse idiom, and if you?re concerned about the performance you must not have a database or anything else that consumes resources orders of magnitude greater. Consider yourself lucky, otherwise don?t optimize at this level unless you really need to. Keep blogging.
