I was using contact lenses for a long time. But after I had keratitis, I had to leave the lens. In June last year, I almost lost my eye because of the bacteria that got into my eye due to the lens, but I saved my eye because I went to the hospital before it was too late. My left eye, which has keratitis, is very healthy now, but unfortunately I cannot get rid of myopia easily. I think laser surgeries can also be risky. Laser surgeries look scary. People who have had laser surgery talk about laser being a really easy surgery, but I'm not sure about it. And I don't know the bad side effects the laser can create. I went to the ophthalmologist two days ago and the doctor said that I can have a laser and laser surgery is suitable for both my eyes. I wear glasses right now, but I don't really feel comfortable wearing glasses. Wearing lenses gave me a lot of freedom. I could easily see the world in all its details without seeing the world behind the frames. But if I use contact lenses again, I will really lose my eye this time because there were times when I was very tired and when I used contact lenses, sometimes I was too tired to take my lenses out of my eyes. Because I neglected to change the lens water for only a few days, the bacteria called pseudomanas had entered my eye and this bacteria was a bacteria that could eat my eye. But thankfully, that bacteria was gone from my eye and my eye returned to its healthy state. But even the wind hitting my eyes when I wear lenses would give me pleasure, but glasses are like a barrier between me and the world. When I take off the glasses, nothing shows up, that's awful. I don't want to feel like I need glasses to live. I did eye exercises for 7 months, but my eyes degrees did not decrease. However, it is said that the exercises in the link can lower the eye degree. Do you think this is true? Maybe, thanks to these exercises, at least my eyes degrees didn't increase any more.
Most Helpful Opinions
No, there is no scientific evidence that eye exercises can completely relieve myopia. Myopia is a refractive error caused by the shape of the eye and requires corrective lenses or surgery to correct vision. However, some eye exercises may improve eye strain or tension and contribute to better visual habits and overall eye health.
Surgery can be a treatment option for myopia. There are two main types of surgical procedures for myopia:
- Refractive surgery: Refractive surgery involves reshaping the cornea to allow light to properly focus on the retina. The most common type of refractive surgery for myopia is LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis). In this procedure, a laser is used to reshape the cornea and improve the way light enters the eye.
- Lens replacement surgery: Lens replacement surgery involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. This type of surgery is called cataract surgery and can also correct myopia.
It is important to note that surgical procedures for myopia have risks and limitations, and not everyone is a candidate for surgery. A comprehensive eye examination and consultation with an eye doctor are necessary to determine if surgery is the best option for a person's specific needs.0

It's dangerous because there is a good chance of having halos around everything you see. This will be permanent. I've known more than one person who regret the laser surgery they had. Also, in 1994, I was talking with a biophysics professor whose research was on the eye. We were talking about laser surgery. She said "There's not an eye doctor I know who'll let their kids do it."
Meanwhile, it's worthless. Why?
Something you need to understand is that YOUR VISION WILL ___A_L_W_A_Y_S___ CHANGE.
This is because the lens of your eye will continuously grow. This is why older people get a special form of hyperopia (farsightedness) called presbyopia ("aged sight"). So, if you think you can get laser surgery to make your vision clear, think again. Your vision will still change.
If you want perfect vision, in a sense, wait until you need cataracts surgery. You will lose the ability to see clearly up close, but you can opt to have otherwise perfect vision. Because I had myopia and astigmatism, I wore prescription glasses from 1970 until 2018 when I had cataract surgery. I haven't had prescription lenses since and can now see clearer as well.
