Q Issues like cataract/ issues arising long term.?

Ans.  EpiLASIK is a superficial eye procedure. The laser does not enter the eyes. So, any age related changes or eye issues related to diabetes/ blood pressure, which may arise later in life will continue to do so, whether you do LASIK/ EpiLASIK, use glasses or lenses.

However, today’s cataract procedures are also helped by using lenses which give you benefit for near and far vision. Hence, all you need to do is inform the treating doctor regarding the history of having undergone LASIK/ EpiLASIK and the doctor will use the appropriate formula to order your lens..
