Am I a Candidate?

Who is a good LASIK Candidate?

LASIK has helped millions of people to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses or contacts. However, it is not for everyone. Your eye doctor is the best source of information pertinent to your specific needs and the conditions that may make or prevent you from being a good candidate for LASIK.

Generally, you should have:

  • Healthy eyes
  • Not be pregnant or nursing
  • Be over 18 years old.
  • Your vision should be stable with no change in your eyewear prescription in the last 12 months.
  • Your vision error should also be within acceptable ranges of correction for LASIK.
  • You must understand the potential risks, complications and side effects associated with LASIK laser vision correction and be willing to subject yourself to those risks.

You should discuss these and any other issues with your surgeon, carefully weighing the risks and rewards before making your final decision to have LASIK or any surgery.
