Q My number has increased by 0.25 in the last year. Would this have any bearing on his intention to do Lasik?

Ans.  No, this will not. Do not be surprised if your numbers too may be found different when we examine ourselves as well! Upto 0.75 D is acceptable as a change due to human factor as no person checks their powers with the same center, same doctor etc. In fact on the same day if you were go to two different opticians, quite possible that you are prescribed slightly different power.

What’s important for us is that Dr Anand Shroff checks the powers himself, three times – with dilation, with the aberrometer and then the data that is taken is not manual, but from the wavefront analyzer. So, do not worry regarding this.
