Lasik surgery Pre test(cornea scanning)
Hi, I am 23 year old male any my eyesight is above -7 in both eyes. I want to undergo lasik surgery and contacted to clinic about it. They told me to under a corneal scanning test for Rs. 3500 to determine of I can have lasik surgery. My question is:- 1)Can I have this pre-tests at one hospital and       final lasik treatment at the other hospital. Will other hospital accept the pre test report or I will have to undergo the test again? 2)I contacted 2 hospital regarding this pre-tests one at Rs 2000 and other at Rs.3500. Since this is just the machine generated testing technique so can I go with the cheaper one or should I go for the costly one ? Does it affect the testing quality? Thanks

Though you can get the pre lasik check up done anywhere but it's always neyter to get it done a T the place of surgery due to the fact of tuning of all three ie check up,machine and the surgeon. But since your number is little higher side hence it's likely that,lasik might not be possible in your case. And have to go for an other procedure,which might be still costly ie approx double or more than lasik.

One of the pre Lasik evaluation is corneal scanning . But a retinal evaluation is also mandatory in this regard . You can get a corneal evaluation in any place you want, but it is always better where the surgeons recommends.  There are also many types of corneal topographies and your surgeon might recommend what is best in this regard. With the power you are saying , I would get a retinal evaluation first , get a clearance and then go for corneal evaluation. Whether you get a Lasik or not , for your power a retinal evaluation is mandatory.
