Are You a LASIK Candidate?

Posted by fasttrack on June 5, 2016

Candidate_for_LASIK.jpgLASIK is refractive eye surgery performed to correct or improve vision.  During LASIK, a trained eye surgeon from Donelson Eye Associates in Greenville creates a flap in the cornea.  A laser is then used to reshape the cornea, which corrects most vision problems.

For people with moderate vision problems who also have a good health history, LASIK can be a great way to correct eye problems.  LASIK can be used for:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Some forms of astigmatism

Your ophthalmologist can determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK.  Some people with health problems, dry eyes, diabetes or other conditions may not necessarily be a candidate. 

Call us to schedule a LASIK consultation.  Be sure to bring your health history and list of all medications.
