Is LASIK Eye Surgery right for you? #LASIK #Lasereyesurgery

 

Because your eyes and your vision are as unique to you as your fingerprints and DNA, it's very difficult for us to know whether LASIK eye surgery can benefit you without a personal examination. However, many recent medical advances have made it possible to correct problems that couldn't be fixed just a few years ago.

In general, the conditions we're able to treat include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. We like our patients to be at least 21 years of age, have healthy corneas, and to have had stable vision over the past year. Please bring a record of your glasses prescription with you to your first consultation.

You should mention to your doctor if you have diabetes, are pregnant, have a diagnosis or keratoconus or a family member with this condition, have ever had a cold sore (herpes) infection of the eye, have glaucoma, suffer from dry eyes or Sjogrens syndrome, have rheumatoid arthritis or have had any previous eye surgery. You may still be able to have laser eye surgery but it allows your doctor to make the safest decision for you
