Ideal candidates for refractive surgery are those who want to reduce their dependence on glasses and contacts lenses. They are over the age of 21, have had no significant change in prescription for 2 years, and have very healthy eyes. A comprehensive eye exam and special measurements must be done to verify ocular health and help determine candidacy. A free Refractive Screening at Relf EyeCare Specialists is a good place to start! PRK might be a more appropriate type of laser vision correction for those who are borderline candidates for LASIK. A non-laser procedure such as clear lens exchange is another alternative. Our eyecare specialists will assist you in this complex decision-making process, and help you make the best decision for your eyes.
