I was using these glasses from 3-4 years and before this as well my number got increased little bit, i don't remember the earlier one numbers but my current eyesight number is as follows : Right Eye : sph -1.00, cyl-1.25, axis 100 Left eye: sph-1.25, cyl-1.75, axix 80 My question is that , 1. As my eye sight number is increasing after every 3-4 years , should i need to worry about this ? How i can prevent this however i wear glasses all the time. 2. Should i go for the Lasik surgery with my current eyesight numbers and will this not increase after Lasik as i want to get rid of glasses? Please help me to understand this. Many thanks in Advance!

Please get your corneal topography done to exclude keratoconus. If everything is ok then you can get the lasik done.

Hello, It's a myth that if one wears the glasses one's glass power won't change. Also we need to understand if the number has changed, is it a significant jump. Visit an ophthalmologist and get your number evaluated on 2 occasion 6 month apart,if stable proceed for other examination like tear function test, lens status, retina, topography and pachymetry. If ok,you can def get rid of glasses with LASIK.
