Am I a candidate for LASIK?
The LASIK Candidate
The ideal patient has not had a change in their prescription within the last year. This does not exclude candidacy for other patients who also may qualify. The surest way of defining your ability to fully benefit from LASIK, is to have your eyes examined.
The LASIK procedure addresses nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK has become the alternative of choice for over two million eyes every year.
LASIK has produced consistently excellent results and its rapid healing characteristics and minimal, if any, discomfort has made LASIK become the most popular refractive surgical procedure in history. Although individual results vary, most patients after having LASIK see well enough to pass their driver’s license test without wearing their glasses or contact lenses.
*Patients in a clinical study reported these results without glasses or contact lenses
- Pass Driving Test = 99%
- See 20/20 = 98%
- See Better Than 20/20 = 70%
The FDA has approved laser vision correction as an alternative to eyeglasses and contact lens
The LASIK advantage is to greatly reduce or completely eliminate your need for corrective eyeglasses.
