    Yes, lasik will correct your double vision. However you should firstly check whether your double vision is serious. If not, you could just use some home remedies to treat it. You could use the eye drops to get rid of the invisible bacterium in the eyes. You could also use warm compress to make your eyes vision get clear. If your double vision is serious, you could take the lasik into consideration.

    LASIK, also known as laser eye surgery. It is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism by reshaping the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity. However, side effects include dryness, seeing halos around images, fluctuating vision and glare. Double vision really can be treated by medicines and surgery. In addition, double vision can be caused by various factors so that treatment options also differ from factors. You had better see a doctor to determine your true cause of your double vision.

    Generally speaking, a lasik surgery is intended for people who have got nearsightedness instead of for people who got double vision. As to double vision, which is another name for diplopia, if your double vision is caused by weak eye muscles or by a muscle which has been pinched as a result of injury, then a surgery, which is different from a lasik surgery, may help. If your double vision is caused by graves' disease, it is often curable with surgery or medical therapy, which is also different from a lasik surgery. If the double vision is caused blood sugar in diabetes, it can be controlled with medicines and insulin. Therefore, you should go to the doctor's to find out the exact cause of your double vision, so that you can apply the correspondent treatment.
