Am I A Candidate?
In most cases, LASIK can treat the most severe degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Candidates must have realistic expectations about their results- LASIK is not right for everyone. That’s why South Coast Laser Eye Centers affiliated doctors must be prudent when determining if you are a candidate.
To be a potential candidate for LASIK you must be at least 18 years old, in good general health, and have good eye health with no diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma. Only an in-depth examination of your eyes, your individual case, your expectations and your lifestyle by an experienced, licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist can determine if you are a candidate.
The best way for you to determine this is with a thorough exam from your eye doctor. Appropriate candidates must be at least 18 years old, in good general health, and have good eye health with no diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma.
