-16D is not correctable by LASIK. You need to consider ICL. Here a thin COLLAMER LENS is implanted inside the eye permanently. Please get a detailed evaluation of your eyes to study the feasibility of ICL

Hello there...... LASIK surgery is most appropriate for people who have a moderate degree of refractive error.... A good surgical outcome depends on careful evaluation of your eyes before the surgery..... Your results depend on your specific refractive error and other factors. People with a low grade of nearsightedness tend to have the most success with refractive surgery......
