Am I a good candidate for LASIK?

LASIK is a surgical procedure that reshapes your cornea to improve your eyesight and lessen your dependency on contacts or glasses.

In my ophthalmology practice, I consider LASIK one of the most rewarding refractive surgery procedures because it offers patients not only improved vision but an improved lifestyle. Patients are amazed at how a simple and quick LASIK procedure can provide clearer vision than they have enjoyed in years or even decades.

If you are wondering whether you are a good candidate for LASIK, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are my eyes fully developed (usually this means you are 18 years or older)?
  • Do I have realistic expectations about what the procedure can and can’t do?
  • Have I had stable vision for a year prior to the surgery?
  • Am I in generally good health?
  • Do I have the proper type and degree of refractive error (nearsightedness, astigmatism, farsightedness, etc.)
  • Am I tired of wearing and maintaining my contact lenses or glasses?

If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, then surgery might be a good option for you. Please contact Western Laser Eye Associates for more information about what surgery can do for you and to schedule a free consultation.
