What Questions To Ask Yourself Before Considering LASIK
Posted By || 05-04-2016
When you know you want to get LASIK, there are a million questions swimming in your head. What’s the process? Who do I talk to get the ball rolling? What movies are opening this Friday that I can watch with my new, incredibly cool LASIK vision? (You may be getting ahead of yourself with that last one. But we can talk you through the recovery process).
One question people don’t often think of is – When should I get LASIK? Is now the right time? Well, if you want to know, we’ve got a few additional questions you can ask yourself:
1. Am I a good candidate for LASIK?
We don’t know. But the truth is that the majority of people who meet the age and general health requirements and have a stable vision prescription may qualify as a good candidate.
So even if an eye doctor told you you’re not a good candidate in the past, you should consider a second opinion from a qualified ophthalmologist, like us! To set up a consultation, give us a call at 1-888-495-0977 or you click here http://soroudivision.com/lasik-consultation
Also, “I can’t have LASIK,” because “I have astigmatism” misconception is wrong. Folks with astigmatism may qualify too. The point is to let you know that just because you assume you aren’t a candidate or have been told so; in the past based on older technology doesn’t mean you are actually not a good candidate. And you won’t know until you see a LASIK expert to tell you.
2. Am I ready for LASIK?
Depending on the technology the doctor uses, you need to be at least 18 or 21 years of age to qualify. You also need to have a stable vision prescription to be a good LASIK candidate. A qualified doctor can track your vision and let you know if your eyes have stabilized. So again, one “Not a Candidate” decision in the past doesn’t mean you should never ask again.
3. Who shouldn’t get LASIK?
There are certain vision prescriptions LASIK simply doesn’t address, which your doctor will be able to advise you on during your consultation. There are also certain eye and medical conditions that prevent folks from getting LASIK.
So, again, am I a good candidate for LASIK?
Well, armed with above, you now know the right things to talk about with a qualified LASIK doctor. So we think the next step is to talk to one. To set up a consultation, give us a call at 1-888-495-0977 or you click hereCategories: Blog
