I have 14 dioptres of myopia. Would myopic surgery with an intraocular lens cure my myopia?
No, laser does not cure myopia as this is a disorder affecting the whole eye. Pathological myopia involves: a change in eyeball size and thinning of its layers. Laser surgery changes the shape of the cornea, by cutting it like a diamond, to improve the focus of the optical system. It has no effect on structural changes of the myopic eye and their consequences for eye health.
