Am I a Good Candidate for LASIK Eye Surgery in Charlotte?


procedures are growing in popularity in the Charlotte area. People are happy with the idea of being able to improve their vision while at the same time get rid of things like contacts and glasses. They like the ability to wake up every day with crystal-clear vision knowing that more than likely, they will never need to rely on eyeglasses again.

Some people think that only individuals with special circumstances are good candidates for LASIK eye surgery. The truth is that there are more candidates for LASIK eye surgery then you might think.

First and foremost, the best way to determine your candidacy is to talk to our LASIK professionals. By evaluating the condition of your eyes, your health, and your vision goals, we will be able to help you determine if LASIK is right for you.

One qualification for LASIK eye surgery is age. The minimum age for basic LASIK treatments is 18 years old. Individuals who are 21 years of age or older may qualify for specific treatments designed to address astigmatism or nearsightedness.

Although your vision may not be perfect, in order to be a good candidate for LASIK, your eyes should be overall healthy. By healthy, we mean that you should not have eyes diseases, you should not have any abnormalities that affect your cornea, and your eyes should be free from infections and scars.

LASIK has been shown to be unbelievably safe and effective. Many people in Charlotte have used the treatment and are now enjoying the benefits that come from clear vision. In order to be a good candidate for this procedure, you should have clear in mind what the procedure is, what the realistic end results will be, as well as what the healing process is like. The more informed you are and the healthier you are, the higher likelihood exists that you are a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery.
