Am I a Good Candidate For LASIK Surgery?


Glasses and contact lenses can be quite an inconvenience in your everyday life. From glasses getting foggy to dirty contacts making your eyes irritated and red, they can be having you want to ditch them forever. With LASIK Surgery, now you can!

What Is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK surgery is the best and most popular way to correct your vision permanently. LASIK works by using a laser to reshape your cornea to fix any visual errors. LASIK is so popular today because it has a fast recovery time and doesn’t cause much discomfort. Once your LASIK surgery is completed, you can resume your daily activities the next day with perfect vision!

Who Makes a Good Candidate for LASIK Surgery?

If you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you can get LASIK surgery done to fix your eyesight. You make a good candidate for LASIK surgery if you are between 20 and 55 years of age, have nearsightedness up to -9.00, have an astigmatism up to -5.00, have normal-sized and cured corneas, and are in good overall health.
