Are You a LASIK Surgery Candidate?
Many Manchester, CT area residents are interested in achieving clear vision through LASIK but aren’t sure if they’re candidates. If you’ve been wondering about this, it’s the ideal time to do a Lasik screening at Prudhomme Vision. Here are some things that you’ll discuss with Dr. Prudhomme or Dr. Marquis during your visit.
- Age – Are you over age 18? Patients should be at least 18 to qualify.
- Eye Health – Are your eyes in good overall health? Lasik candidates must be free from eye disease and serious corneal problems.
- Eye Focus – Are you able to focus on a fixed area for 1-2 minutes? You’ll need to stare at a fixed point during Lasik surgery.
- Contact Lenses – Do you wear contact lenses? If so, you’ll need to forgo contact lens wear for 2-4 weeks prior to your Lasik screening and procedure. Contacts can alter the corneal shape and can impact whether the doctor qualifies yours for surgery. Therefore, it’s best to stop wearing them well in advanced of your Lasik screening.
LASIK can be an excellent solution for many people who suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism. This surgery can allow you to see clearly for the first time in years — no glasses or contact lenses needed anymore! If you’re able to meet the requirements at the Lasik screening, Dr. Prudhomme or Dr. Marquis can help you plan your surgery right away.
