Will surgery help me get rid of contact lenses?

I am 18 years old and my eye power number is -8.00. I went to a doctor for an operation but he gave me 6 months medicine to avoid fluctuations in my eye power. He suggested me to get this operated after 6 months. Will I be able to get rid of contact lens?


No medicines can stop the progression of the number of glasses/contact lenses. For Lasik surgery, the guidelines are:
1) You must have a stable number.
2) You should be more than 18 years of age.
3) Appropriate corneal thickness.
4) Retina with no holes/tears.
5) No dry eye.
6) Normal eye pressure.
7) You will have to stop wearing contact lenses 2-4 weeks before the surgery.
