LASIK surgery is it worth it ? Will it have any effect on migraine?

I have been considering Lasik surgery for a long time as the degree of astigmatism is -3.75. But due to constant exposure to the monitor for my work, I've aggravated my migraine. I've done a lot of research on the internet and around me, but I have doubts. Is it absolutely right that we won't have to use glasses after surgery? Most places and people say that my closer vision will be compromised. Will it have any effect on migraine? Has anyone done this and feel like it was still worth it.

  1. Hi @y graydor,

    Thank you for reaching out to our community with your question.

    I've not had this surgery, but I'm sure others will be along shortly to share their experiences with you.

    Vision issues may trigger a migraine attack, but I've not seen anything that this surgery will help with migraine. Personally I wouldn't have this done as a migraine treatment, vision improvement is another thing.

    Will you keep us posted if you have this done?
