Who is a good candidate for LASIK?
Anyone who is dependent on corrective lenses for daily activities is potentially a great candidate for LASIK. Our advanced Blade-Free LASIK procedure can be used to correct vision issues like astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia, and the parameters of treatment have expanded as the technology has progressed over the years.
Mann Eye Institute offers Blade-Free LASIK with the WaveLight System, a revolutionary platform that allows our surgeons to utilize a combination of lasers to customize the procedure according for each patient. The precision and accuracy of these lasers means that more people are candidates for the LASIK procedure than in the past, because of the developments in LASIK technology.
I’ve had LASIK myself, which I believe speaks volumes to the safety and precision of the procedure. I would never offer a procedure to a patient that I wouldn’t be comfortable having on my own eyes, or performing on the eyes of my friends or family.
In the rare cases that LASIK is not ideal for a patient, other vision correction options are available, including clear lens exchange, implantable contact lenses, PRK or surface ablative therapy. Completing your LASIK screening is first step to determining your specific vision correction needs.
