Are You a Good Candidate for Laser Vision Correction?

You are if. . .

Are you eligible for LASIK

  • You are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism;
  • You are age 21-60 (over 60, you may be a candidate if you are free from cataracts);
  • Your vision has been stable for 3 years;
  • You have no eye problems — no recurring inflammation that causes itching;
  • You have no health issues affecting your eyes. For example, if you have Rheumatoid Arthritis or Diabetes, your doctor will need to make sure your condition is not causing eye problems.


An eye examination with a LASIK doctor will ensure your candidacy.
