Post subject:  cataract surgery post LASIK

I had LASIK at Austin in 2001. One enhancement on the left eye and twice on the right eye. The right eye had never been corrected and needed glasses. I did not take the doctor's offer to do a third enhancement on it.

Around 2006, a regular eye exam found that I had cataract in both eyes. In January 2008, I had the cataract surgery on my right eye. This month (June, 2008), I am going to have another surgery on my left eye. I have seen 4 doctors before the surgery. Only one doctor who did not perform LASIK said the cataract might be related to LASIK due to the sucking pressure they put on my eyes during the procedures. She told me few eye doctors has LASIK on themselves because they knew any poor outcome may not be corrected.

I am in my 40's. My father had the cataract surgery when he was 80 and my mom got hers when she was 72.

I don't have the medical background to relate LASIK to my cataract. I can only share my experience. Hope others have much better outcome than mine. But personally, I would not recommend LASIK to others although some of my friends claimed they got pretty good results.
