Are You a LASIK Eye Surgery Candidate?
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for LASIK Eye Surgery. The medical team at Fava & Maria Eye Associates will assess whether or not you’d be a good candidate for laser vision correction.
In general, good candidates for LASIK eye surgery:
- Are 18 years of age or older
- Have stable vision for a year prior to the eye laser surgery
- Are free of certain diseases of the cornea and retina
- Are in good general health
In addition to these requirements, we encourage you to be fully informed about what is entailed with your laser vision correction procedure. Our team provides a thorough LASIK surgery consultation and examination and explains your vision correction procedure in great length prior to eye laser surgery.
Come in for a LASIK Eye Surgery Consultation
The primary objective of our laser vision consultation is to determine whether you are a candidate for laser vision correction. If you are a good candidate, we will determine which laser vision procedure is best for your specific vision needs. We will discuss the risks and benefits of the laser eye surgery procedure and answer your questions.
Keep in mind that even if you are not a great candidate for laser vision correction surgery today, that does not mean you never will be. The technology for vision correction is continually being enhanced, enabling more difficult prescriptions to qualify for laser surgery. However, some patients may never be eye laser surgery candidates.
The only way to find out if you are a candidate for vision correction surgery is to come to Fava & Maria for your vision correction consultation. Contact our office today at (717) 272 2010.
