To fully determine if you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery you will need to have a FREE LASIK exam with Dr. Perraut. Here are some other things to keep in mind for a good LASIK candidate:
Good candidates for LASIK surgery are at least 18 years of age, in good health and have no eye diseases such as cataracts keratoconus, glaucoma or herpes. Candidates should also be free of other major health problems.
It is important for candidates to make Dr. Perraut aware of any eye problems, severe dry eyes, injuries or previous surgeries to the eyes, or any recurrent or active eye conditions that could possibly affect healing. Candidates for LASIK laser eye surgery must also have had a stable prescription for the past two years prior to the surgery.
Another factor in determining your candidacy for LASIK vision correction is cost. From an affordability perspective, LASIK will save you money by eliminating the need to buy new glasses and sunglasses, contact lenses, contact solution and more.
