LASIK eye surgery is done by manipulating the corneal diopteric power and for this many variables are to be considered and fed into the machine and software calculates the parameters. All these parameters are not absolute and some are even beyond calculations, so a small error of 0.25D to 0.5D is inevitable and moreover this small error is not visually significant, it hardly makes a difference of 1 line on vision testing chart.
Next Steps
If you're are still not satisfied, please book a consultation. Hopefully I will be able to help to more.
Health Tips
Please consider LASIK surgery after the age of 21 years and after your spectacle power stabilizes.

0.50 variation is a very subjective variation and so it isn't considered significant. If your power is checked on two consecutive days, there is a possibility that on one day you might accept 0.50 difference and on another day you won't.
