Who Can Benefit From Laser Eye Surgery?

Everyone considering laser eye surgery needs to have a comprehensive eye exam and consultation. We need to take a detailed look at your eyes and understand your health history and lifestyle needs in order to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

We’ll also be sure to discuss your expectations for the surgery. Many people achieve 20/20 vision after their procedure, but there are certainly people who need glasses or contact lenses post-surgery. But, surgery almost always decreases reliance on corrective lenses.

In order to be considered a candidate for laser eye surgery, your eyes must be in good health. Infections, severe dry eye, or recent trauma may mean you’ll need to delay the procedure.

Here are a few other considerations for surgery:

  • You must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Your refractive error must not be too great.
  • Your prescription must be stable.

To find out whether you’re a candidate for laser vision correction, book an appointment today!

What Is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery is a group of procedures—all just a little bit different—that use a laser to correct refractive errors in your vision.

Technological advances have made several types of laser vision correction possible, but the 2 most common types remain LASIK and PRK.

LASIK

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) involves a surgeon cutting a flap in your cornea. This flap is then folded back and the remaining layers are reshaped with a precision laser.

Once the reshaping is complete, the surgeon will return the flap to its original position and the cornea will repair itself. Post-surgery surveys report extremely high levels of satisfaction with LASIK.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) involves the surgeon removing the top layer of the cornea altogether, then reshaping the remaining layers.

Is Laser Surgery Right for Me?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with laser eye surgery. We will ensure you understand the risks and will support you in making an informed decision.
