Are you a good candidate for LASIK Surgery?

Advantages of Lasik

If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have questioned if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, the surgery offers many benefits. People who play sports, have allergies, or are looking for a simple way to see their best will benefit from LASIK.

Am I a good candidate?

Come see us! Our doctors offer pre-and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using the most advanced technologies available.

Evaluation and Referral

LenSx LASIK surgery uses technological advancements to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has effectively treated many eye conditions, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Our doctors perform a complete review of your patient history and a full assessment of your eye health and vision.  A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results.  The exam history review enables our doctors and staff to determine if your Rx is stable and if you are healthy enough for the surgery.

Once our doctors have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, our surgery center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery.  Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate.  If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us today to schedule a FREE consultation.


To determine whether or not a patient is a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery, the eye doctor will conduct a pre-LASIK eye examination.

The traditional LASIK vision correction procedure begins with the creation of a hinged corneal flap. After the eye is anesthetized with topical eye drops, the LASIK eye surgeon creates the flap on the outer surface of the eye to expose the underlying cornea. The flap can be created with a microkeratome (a hand-held device) or with the IntraLase® laser, which allows the surgeon to create the flap using a computer-guided laser. The cornea is then reshaped using an excimer laser, and the flap is replaced.

After LASIK eye surgery, many patients experience immediate improved vision, although it can take up to six months for vision to stabilize. Patients can expect a short LASIK surgery recovery period, but there is usually little to no discomfort following the procedure. Our follow-up exams ensure proper healing of the eye.

LASIK Risk and Benefits

LASIK eye surgery benefits include improved visual activity, freedom from corrective eyewear, and a new outlook on life!  Patients who achieve a successful LASIK surgery outcome can eliminate their need for correction assistance and enjoy the freedom of clear vision all the time!  Patients can play sports, swim, spend a day at the beach, and participate in various activities without needing glasses or contact lenses.

A small number of patients – 1-5% – experience LASIK eye surgery complications. LASIK risks include sensitivity to light, haloed or glared vision, loss of visual clarity, irregular astigmatism, dry eyes, and some sensitivity. Fortunately, advances in LASIK technology have dramatically reduced complications, and many problems can be easily corrected with additional treatment.
