Is LASIK Surgery Right For You?

LASIK surgery has become a preferred choice for the correction of refractive errors such as hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. This procedure is effective and takes a very short time to complete. If you or a loved one has a refractive error, contact our team at Exquisite Eye Care - Friendswood for all of your pre and post-op care. We will perform a comprehensive eye examination and help you determine if LASIK is right for you.

Who Can Get LASIK Surgery?

There are several criteria that you can use to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery.

  • You must be 18 years of age or older.
  • You cannot be pregnant or nursing because this can interfere with healing after LASIK surgery.
  • No eye diseases including glaucoma, cataracts, dry eye syndrome, diabetes, vascular disease, autoimmune disease, macular degeneration, and others. You should not have any eye infections or inflammations. You need to get a complete eye examination before the surgery.
  • If you have a corneal disorder such as keratoconus, this may not be a suitable option for you. LASIK may cause your cornea to become weaker and lead to vision problems due to the irregular shape. This is especially true if you did not seek treatment before LASIK.
  • Large pupils can increase your risk for complications from LASIK, so if you have large pupils, this may not be a suitable option for you.
  • You may not be a suitable candidate if your prescription is too high.
  • You should be in good general health and have stable vision.
