Is Lasik right for you?

You are a good Lasik candidate if: 

  • You are over 18 years of age and have had a stable glasses or contact lens prescription for at least two years

  • You have a cornea that is thick enough so the surgeon can cut the flap safely during the procedure.

  • You are diagnosed with a refractive vision disorder such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism or a combination of them

  • You do not have any disease that might affect your vision or interfere with the results of the operation

It is not recommended that you undergo Lasik  if: 
  • You are under the age of 18

  • You are pregnant or nursing

  • Have a history of dry eyes

  • Have refractive disorders that are too severe

  • Are being treated with medications such as steroids or immuno-suppressants, which can prevent healing, or are suffering from diseases that slow healing, such as auto-immune disorders.

  • Have diseases such as cataracts, advanced glaucoma, corneal diseases, corneal thinning disorders (keratoconus or pellucid marginal degeneration), or certain other pre-existing eye diseases that affect or threaten vision.
