Am I a Good LASIK Candidate?

LASIK is a surgical method for long-term vision improvement. First approved by the FDA in 1998, LASIK technology has since progressed impressively, helping to ensure more consistent and reliable outcomes with fewer risks than ever before. If you are curious about LASIK, use the contact form on this page or call Seeta Eye Center to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified ophthalmologists today.

LASIK Candidates

LASIK might be an attractive option if you are unhappy with heavy reliance on glasses or contact lenses. Through LASIK, it is possible to greatly reduce your reliance on prescription eyewear for several years, though wanting clearer vision is not the only consideration.

Good LASIK candidates need to be free of major eye diseases and disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Patients with dry eye syndrome are also not good LASIK candidates. Ideal candidates for laser vision correction should have stable vision for at least 12 months prior to surgery and be aware of both the benefits and limitations of the procedure. During your initial consultation, we will carefully assess your visual acuity and health, and answer any questions you may have to help you determine if LASIK is the best fit for your needs.
