How safe is a Lasik eye surgery?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my grandmother is 80 years old. She never had spectacles in her life. She was able to see everything very clearly and she used to read the newspaper even without spectacles. It has been only one week since she is not able to see clearly and read the newspaper. She also complained to me that she is experiencing severe eye strain and headaches while reading. These days she squints in order to see things clearly. Yesterday I took her to a clinic nearby. After a detailed check-up, the doctor said that she is suffering from cataract. The doctor suggested undergoing a Lasik eye surgery from a clinic in Toronto. My grandmother is afraid of surgeries. Is there any other way to correct it other than surgery? Can it be cured using eye drops? Is it safe to undergo a Lasik eye surgery at this age? Please help me with some valuable suggestions. Any advice is highly appreciated. Thank you!
