Hmmm. I wonder what your doctor would recommend next
Your high refractive error is a relative contraindication for any surface ablation technique including PRK, LASEK and Epi-Lasik. There would be an elevated risk of corneal haze (can be managed, but you don't want to go there) and regression is all but absolute.
Your refractive error would require between 110 and 170 microns of tissue removal the first time
. Enhancement surgery would probably be another 10-20. That is a significant percentage of tissue removal.
Phakic intraocular lenses (PIOL)
would seem like something to at least consider, but if you read our article you will see that they have their share of limitations and concerns too. PIOLs will not correct astigmatism, which may leave a small bit of ghosting (doubled vision) in lower light environments. To know if this is a real problem, try contact lenses (disposable, of course) that only correct your myopia (nearsighted, shortsighted) vision.
If you are well past age 40 and fully presbyopic, then Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
may be an appropriate alternative to consider.
Your doctor will evaluate the health of your eyes for their current condition. Your history of GPC and uveitis a decade ago would probably not rule you out for refractive surgery. They are, however, and indication that you were not quite as diligent in contact lens care as you should have been...but then I'm sure you know that. Be sure your surgeon knows of this history.
Your Flexible Spending Account
can be used for most any medical expense, even eyeglasses and contact lenses. Don't pressure yourself into surgery, especially surgery that appears to have an elevated level of risk.
