If the +0.75 contact lens does not improve the vision, then it is unlikely that LASIK will help. Something else is going on if the proper correction does not sharpen your vision. Patients with retinitis pigmentosa often have macular edema, and this may be the cause of the blurred vision. If you have not had an OCT (Optical Coherent Tomography) of the macula, ask your retina specialist about this, since this test will detect macular edema easily.
I forgot to mention that I have Retinitis Pigmentosa as well. Not sure if that plays into the decision to go for LASIK..
My retina specialist has never been a fan of LASIK.
Fairly certain it's not macular edema as I've had about a dozen OCT's since the surgery last year. Haven't had one since November but all looked clear.
I think you misunderstood me a bit. The +0.75 contact lens didn't seem to do anything for me, but when using the machine at the doctor's office (the one where they say "what's better #1 or #2" - when I look through that, everything clears up, but using a contact lens does nothing.
I haven't tried wearing glasses yet to correct the +0.75 since I haven't had my right eye done yet.
I do wear a +2.50 lens in my left eye so I can see the computer better and that is super clear.
