Who Are the Ideal Candidates for LASIK Surgery?

Are you tired of fumbling for your glasses first thing in the morning, or constantly adjusting your contact lenses throughout the day? If so, LASIK surgery might be the solution you’ve been searching for. At Paragon Eye Associates, we understand the life-changing benefits that LASIK can offer, and we’re here to help you determine if you’re an ideal candidate for this transformative procedure.

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a popular refractive surgery that can correct common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for LASIK, and it’s essential to understand the criteria that make someone an ideal candidate.

Who are the ideal candidates for LASIK surgery?

  1. Stable Prescription: Candidates should have a stable vision prescription for at least one year before undergoing LASIK surgery. Fluctuating prescriptions can affect the accuracy of the procedure and the long-term results.
  2. Good Overall Eye Health: Healthy eyes are crucial for successful LASIK outcomes. Candidates should be free from eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and corneal diseases. Conditions like dry eye syndrome should also be managed before considering LASIK.
  3. Age and Health: While there’s no strict age limit for LASIK, candidates should be at least 18 years old and in good overall health. Individuals with certain medical conditions or autoimmune disorders may not be suitable candidates for LASIK.
  4. Realistic Expectations: LASIK can significantly improve vision, but it’s essential for candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcomes. While most patients achieve 20/20 vision or better after LASIK, some may still require glasses for certain activities.
  5. Lifestyle Factors: Candidates should consider their lifestyle and how LASIK can enhance their daily activities. Whether it’s playing sports, swimming, or simply enjoying outdoor activities without the hassle of glasses or contacts, LASIK can provide newfound freedom and convenience.
