Lasik eye surgery
I have around -6 spherical and -2 cylindrical power. My insurance provider says Lasik surgery is covered if refractive power is greater than -7.5. Does refractive power mean spherical + cylindrical. In that case my Lasik surgery will be covered. Also, is it recommended to go for LASIK?
