A lot of people suffer from some sort of eye problem. Whether you’re nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism, or any combination of the three; you know how frustrating it can be to not be able to see as well as you should. These common eye conditions are all caused by imperfections of the cornea, resulting in blurred images.
Recently, more and more people have been looking into LASIK eye surgery as a way to solve these vision problems, improving their overall quality of vision.
LASIK surgery involves reshaping the cornea, allowing your eyes to be better at focusing and enhancing the way you see. Some people will be more suited for LASIK eye surgery than others:
The best candidates will be over the age of 25. This is because your eye can still be growing and changing up to this age. Surgeons do not perform on areas that are still changing.
You’ll find the most success if you are in overall good health. Your eyes should be healthy as well, meaning no recent infections or injuries. Generally, LASIK works best on people with an average amount of vision impairment. More extreme cases may not benefit from LASIK eye surgery.
The best way to tell if LASIK eye surgery is right for you is to visit an experienced ophthalmologist. A doctor will be able to ask you questions and take a look at your specific and unique situation, and tell you if they think you are a good candidate for the surgery.
