what kind of surgery does he need


Thanks for your Question

Many people have this condition and there are many options of treatment such as lasik, PRK, Epi-lasik, Lasek, Phakic Intraocular lens and clear lens extraction with intraocular lens implant.

The best treatment option depend on the severity of myopia and astigmatism, ocular examination and corneal topography which is image of the cornea that can determine the thickness and the shape of the cornea. Thin cornea is contraindication for lasik surgery.
