Regarding LASIK Surgery
Hi All, I am Harish Adkane. On Aug 2016 , I got recommended for INDIAN NAVY for an officer entry. After selection , I underwent stringent medicals. I was fit in all areas, but they declared me unfit because I have a small refractive error of -0.75 for both the eyes and my vision is around 6/9 for right eye and 6/12 for left eye.  They require  6/6 for both the eyes. Though LASIK surgeries are prohibited in Indian armed forces. They won't tell you directly , but they allow candidates wid LASIK surgery done provided it should be done an year ago ..or it should not be detected while medical examination. So i want to do a surgery which is non recognisable and could be healed over a time. As per my research , I came across some variants if LASIK  such as PRK , TRANS -PRK,  Epi LASIK, Trans Epilasik, TEMLA. After 2 months, another Advt will be open,  and I am planning to apply for it again but this time for pilot entry, which again requires 6/6 vision. please guide me on this.

PRK would be a recommended procedure for you. As the number is quite less the result might be unpredictable. For your information PRK does not involve flap formation. Also if one looks world over recruits of the us army do undergo prk if they want glass removal.

Hello PRK once done cannot be recognised by even doctors Other option would be SMILE LASIK...Here also flap is not made and so not easily recognised. Otherwise normal LASIK is other option
