Before having LASIK, most patients couldn’t imagine waking up in the morning and seeing the alarm clock without glasses. They never dreamed they’d be able to drive a car, watch a movie or enjoy sports such as swimming and skiing without contact lenses. Since they were children, this dependence on glasses and contacts has shaped their lives, memories and the way they felt about themselves.
Now, these same patients are pursuing life with new confidence, enthusiasm and ease thanks to LASIK. This remarkable procedure takes only a few minutes to perform, but can have a tremendous impact on your life.
Are You a Candidate?
In most cases, LASIK can treat the most severe degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
Candidates must have realistic expectations about their results- LASIK is not right for everyone. To be a potential candidate for LASIK you must be at least 18 years old, in good general health, and have good eye health with no diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma.
Only an in-depth examination of your eyes, your individual case, your expectations and your lifestyle can determine if you are a candidate.
