Are You a Candidate for LASIK? If so, What Are You Waiting For?

Are You a Candidate for LASIK? If so, What Are You Waiting For?

It’s easy to take your eyesight for granted. That is, until you have problems with focus. Eyeglasses and contact lenses can correct your vision, but they can’t permanently fix the refractive errors that cause your fuzzy vision. 

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most common surgical procedure for correcting focus issues caused by irregularly shaped corneas. Since 1999, when it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), an estimated 25 million LASIK procedures have improved eyesight across the United States. 

It’s a safe, effective, and proven procedure that’s helped many people ditch their corrective lenses. If you’re a candidate for LASIK surgery but haven’t yet taken the plunge, what are you waiting for? 

With two bicoastal offices located in the Midtown East section of New York City and Long Beach, California, Advanced Lasik is here for your vision care needs. Dr. Randa Garrana is one of the nation’s top LASIK providers, with the experience and track record you want for your eye procedure. Find out if you’re a candidate for LASIK — and discover how it can benefit you. 

Are you a candidate for LASIK? 

Successful LASIK procedures require that you — and your eyes — are healthy. The surgery can correct astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. Like many medical conditions, the severity of your refractive error can affect your individual outcome. 

The best results from LASIK surgery tend to come from patients with mild nearsightedness. Those with more severe conditions have less predictable results and, in some cases, may still require corrective lenses, though usually only in certain situations. 

Some activities and medical conditions might lower your chances of successful surgery. These include: 

To help determine whether you’re a good candidate for LASIK surgery, we perform a LASIK eligibility evaluation to gain total insight into every pertinent aspect of your eye health, vision needs, and overall medical history. 

How you can benefit from LASIK

Your decision to undergo LASIK surgery requires a thorough analysis that balances its benefits against its potential risk. We’ve already seen that LASIK offers a permanent fix rather than a temporary correction for your eyes. Some of the other improvements you can expect after your LASIK procedure include: 

In short, you enjoy the luxury of counting on your natural eyesight again, with none of the potential hassles associated with corrective lenses.
