Are you a Candidate for LASIK?
LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is the most commonly performed surgery to correct corneal abnormalities that cause myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. LASIK has been instrumental in helping millions of people worldwide, reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
The ideal candidate for LASIK is over 18 years of age and has healthy corneas. A candidate 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.
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. This 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.
