Am I a candidate, and if so, for which procedure?

The majority of patients with low to moderate nearsighted and/or astigmatic prescriptions are candidates for laser surgery. Limiting factors can include a very high prescription, thinner than average cornea, larger than average pupil diameter, significant dry eye, and a history of poor wound healing or scarring. While these factors may preclude LASIK, patients may still be candidates for other surgical procedures – be sure to ask your optometrist for details about your particular situation.
