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.
Let 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.
