LASIK eye surgery can be an amazing way to improve eyesight. While the procedure is a good fit for many people, LASIK surgery is not a good fit for everyone. Read on to learn if you’re a good candidate for eye surgery. If LASIK is right for you, our eye surgeon will walk you through the process from start to finish. At The Laser Center of Coral Gables in Miami, we provide state of the art eye surgery for our patients.
Who is a Good Candidate for LASIK?
People who are good candidates for LASIK eye surgery have been examined by an ophthalmologist and deemed to have healthy eyes. If you have severe dry eyes, pink eye, or any other type of eye infection or injury, LASIK might not be a good fit for you. Our ophthalmologist will talk with you about whether your condition may improve, making you a candidate for LASIK in the future. If you have overly large pupils or very thin corneas, you may not be a good candidate for LASIK. The best candidates for LASIK have moderate visual impairment. Very low or very high prescriptions are not typically treated with a LASIK procedure. It’s also important that your prescription for corrective lenses remains stable for at least a year. Good candidates are in good overall physical health and are at least 18 years old. If you’re pregnant, wait until after you have your baby before considering LASIK. Certain hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause visual changes.
