Am I a Candidate for LASIK?

Man and Woman Paddling a Boat on a LakeBeing a candidate for a refractive procedure is best determined during a free LASIK consultation appointment with one of our eye care professionals. During the consultation, measurements will be taken which include stability of your prescription, the thickness of the front surface (cornea) of your eye, and the overall health of your eyes. While there is no “ideal” age to have LASIK, we recommend a patient be over the age of 18 and have a stable prescription. There are many ocular and systemic conditions that may have an effect on the final outcome of your procedure and should be discussed with our doctors during your examination.

These conditions may include:

  • Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus
  • Cataracts or diabetic retinopathy with loss of vision
  • Uncontrolled glaucoma
  • Keratoconus (thinning and asymmetric steepening of the cornea)
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Severely dry eyes
  • Current use of Accutane (Isotretinoin), Cordarone (Amiodarone) or Imitrex (Sumatriptan Succinate)

Because of the effect some of these conditions can have on the shape and health of the cornea or on your prescription, it is important to discuss all options and outcomes before the procedure. Contrary to popular belief, astigmatism is correctable with a laser vision procedure.

With all of our refractive procedures, your vision and the health of your eyes is our foremost objective and a positive outcome is our number one goal. Together we can achieve your goals by offering the highest quality procedures for our patients.
