Am I a Candidate?

Am I a Candidate for LASIK?


Millions of people have had successful laser vision correction surgery. If this is something you are considering, you are probably also asking yourself if you are a fully qualified candidate. We will only recommend LASIK for the very best candidates. There are other alternatives to LASIK surgery that can be discussed if you are not a candidate.

Qualified LASIK candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • Over the age of 18
  • In good general health
  • Nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism
  • Vision has been stable for 1 or more years

During your LASIK evaluation you will undergo testing to determine the following:

  • Measurement of corneal thickness
  • Complete review of overall eye health
  • Measurement of prescription for refractive errors
  • Glasses and contact lens history review
  • Custom LASIK measurements
  • Dry eye test
  • Dilation of the eye to view the retina
  • Measurement of pupil size

After Dr. Adelson has completed the LASIK evaluation exam, he will then be able to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. If for some reason you are not a LASIK candidate, we can recommend another option for vision correction.
