Am I A Candidate?



LASIK is a safe and reliable treatment for several common vision conditions, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.  Despite its effectiveness, it is not for everyone.

  •  Stable refractive error, with annual change less than 0.5d
  •  Healthy eyes with little to no amblyopia or lazy eye
  •  Free from cataracts, glaucoma or uncontrolled eye disease
  •  Adequate corneal thickness for your chosen procedure
  •  Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  •  Free from rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
  •  Not taking medications such as Accutane, Plaquenil or Cordarone
