Are You A Good Candidate for LASIK?

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is the most commonly performed surgery to correct corneal abnormalities that cause myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. LASIK has helped millions of people worldwide reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.

Who Is the Ideal LASIK Candidate?

The ideal candidate for LASIK is over 18 years of age and has healthy corneas. A candidate must not have had a significant increase in their prescription in the last 12 months. People with certain medical conditions or women who are pregnant may not be good candidates for LASIK.

Realistic Expectations

It is important that you have realistic expectations. The goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on corrective lenses. LASIK does not always create 20/20. It cannot correct a condition known as presbyopia, (aging of the eye) which normally occurs around age 40.

In the Blink of an Eye

It only takes seconds to treat a lifetime of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Find out if you are a candidate for this life changing procedure. Call Eye Center of Texas at 713-395-1515.
