LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK removes a precise and predetermined amount of tissue from the cornea to correct vision using a femtosecond laser and an excimer laser. By getting LASIK, patients can achieve visual freedom and no longer depend on glasses and contact lenses to see their world. Their vision is also crisper, sharper, and clearer than it was with visual aids because the vision correction procedure improves vision beyond what glasses and contact lenses are capable of. 

Vision with LASIK exceeds the original prescription, so most patients have 20/20 vision or better after having LASIK. Most patients are good candidates for LASIK, although a LASIK consultation is the only way to find out. A good LASIK candidate should be at least 18 years old, be in good health with healthy eyes, have thick enough corneas to undergo LASIK, not be currently pregnant or nursing, have a stable prescription that hasn’t changed in a year or more and have realistic expectations about what LASIK can achieve. 

These are only some factors that make up LASIK candidacy, making a LASIK consultation essential.
