What is LASIK?
LASIK is a procedure used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The painless procedure works by permanently reshaping the cornea.
After LASIK, patients often end up with better vision than they experienced wearing glasses or contact lenses. Imagine your eyesight being crisper, sharper, brighter, and more vibrant than you ever thought possible!
How Do I Know if I’m a Good LASIK Candidate?
At Eye Surgeons of Indiana LASIK Center, we believe that it is critical to make sure LASIK is right for you. Although most patients qualify for LASIK, about 10-15% are deemed non-candidates for this procedure. Unlike many LASIK providers, we offer alternative procedures and most likely can find a solution if this occurs. Reasons for this may include age, dry eye syndrome, or if your corneas are too thin.
You may be a good LASIK candidate if the following applies to you:
- You’re at least 18 years old
- You have a stable prescription that hasn’t changed in at least a year or more
- You’re not currently pregnant or nursing
- Your prescription is within the treatment guidelines, meaning it’s not too strong
- You and your eyes are in good health
- You have realistic expectations about what a laser vision correction procedure like LASIK can achieve
These are only some of the factors that go into determining LASIK candidacy. If you want to know if you’re a good LASIK candidate, start by scheduling your LASIK consultation at Eye Surgeons of Indiana LASIK Center!
At Eye Surgeons of Indiana, we use the Alcon Refractive Suite, the fastest and most technologically advanced laser system in The United States. The Wavelight FS200 femtosecond laser creates a customized and precise corneal flap. The Wavelight EX500 excimer laser is then gently applied to remove a precise amount of tissue from the cornea. The flap is then placed back down, where it’s left to heal on its own.
