Are You A Candidate For LASIK?


The Ideal Candidate

In general, the ideal candidate for LASIK is over 21 years of age and has healthy corneas. Candidates must not have had a significant increase in their prescription in the last 12 months. People with certain medical conditions or women who are pregnant may not be good candidates for LASIK.


Realistic Expectations

The decision to have LASIK is an important one that, ultimately, only you can make. It is important that you have realistic expectations and that your decision is based on facts, not hopes or misconceptions. The goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on corrective lenses. Lasik does not always create 20/20 or even 20/40 vision. It cannot correct a condition known as presbyopia, or aging of the eye. This normally occurs around age 40 and may require the use of reading glasses. In fact, people over 40 who have their distance vision improved with LASIK may find they need reading glasses after the procedure. You doctor will provide you with additional information that will allow you to make an informed decision.

The First Step

Finding out more about the health of your eyes and your refractive error is your first step toward being closer to living your best life with your personal best vision.

It takes only seconds to treat a lifetime of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Find out if you are a candidate for this life-changing procedure by calling your eye doctor to schedule a personal consultation. Should your vision fall within the range of correction for LASIK, more comprehensive tests may be necessary. This information will help your and your doctor determine which laser vision procedure is best for you.
