Are You a Candidate for Laser Vision Correction?

Laser vision correction procedures are not ideal for everyone. Therefore, it is important to consult your optometrist before undergoing a procedure. You may be a candidate for laser vision correction if you meet the following qualifications: 

  • 20-65 years of age 
  • Stable eyeglass and contact lens prescription for at least 2 to 3 years 
  • Stable vision over, at least, the past year 
  • No history of active corneal disease 
  • No significant medical or eye problems 
  • No significant dry eye 
  • Not pregnant or nursing 
  • Eyeglass prescription within certain limits set by your eye surgeon 

Is Laser Vision Correction Surgery Safe?

While any procedure carries a certain level of risk, LASIK is widely considered by most professionals to be a safe procedure with a low rate of complications. Some of the most common LASIK side effects, such as dry eye or glare in vision, are almost always temporary and usually resolve within several weeks of surgery. 

What matters most is if LASIK is safe for you. At Gulf Coast Vision Center, we put safety first. We take a careful approach throughout each stage of your procedure, from assessment and diagnosis to surgery. If our doctors determine that you have risk factors that may make LASIK less safe, they will not recommend the procedure for you.
