Q For some farsighted patients, results may diminish with age. If you are farsighted, the level of improved vision you experience after surgery may decrease with age. This can occur if your manifest refraction (a vision exam with lenses before dilating drops) is very different from your cycloplegic refraction (a vision exam with lenses after dilating drops)

Ans.  Excellent point, as this is what I mean by the doctor’s experience and processes in place. Dr Anand Shroff does all checks himself and fo him it is not just important that your power will be treated and that you become 20/20. He wants you to be 20/happy! Which is why he does the refraction himself with and without dilation and also one of the only doctors to apply wavefront guided technology by using the aberrometer which most centres do not have.
