Now that the LASIK procedure is available, there’s really no reason to put off having laser vision correction. The LASIK technology is safe and proven. The reality is that the majority of people who meet the age and general health requirements are in fact good candidates for the LASIK procedure. Like all surgery, LASIK surgery has some risks we will discuss with you during your consultation. If you meet the basic requirements, you may be a candidate:
You are at least 21 years of age
You are in good general health
You have had a stable vision prescription for a least one year
You have no existing eye disease
