LASIK surgery has been around for two decades, and even after millions
of operations, few complications have been tied to the procedure. Although
LASIK is generally safe and well-tolerated, it isn’t right for everyone.
It’s important to have a thorough exam and consultation with your
LASIK surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
This video explains some of the things your doctor will consider before
approving you for LASIK. This surgery can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness,
and astigmatism, so if you have other eye concerns, you may not be a good
LASIK candidate. Your surgeon will evaluate your general health, ensure
your tear production is not compromised, and check to see if your corrective
lens prescription has been stable for 12 months.
Dr. Mark Hornfeld of New York’s Vista Laser Vision help you decide if LASIK is your
best treatment option. Call (212) 580-8881 to make an appointment.
