It is not so that it's difficult to lower down myopia to zero.we are doing cataract surgery at our centre in myopia of 16, 20 numbers and it has reduced to zero post operatively. About safety, I would prefer to see patient after 21 days of laser barrage for effect of laser has come or not then will decide for surgery date.once proper laser is done then it is safe to go for surgery.
