LASIK Candidacy

Before determining if you are a strong candidate for LASIK, the doctor needs to make sure you are a candidate for laser vision correction. You should go over the following list to make sure you are suitable for any type of laser vision correction procedure. Typically, a doctor would want, if not, require you to meet all of the follow criteria before recommending you for the procedure:

I'm nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism.
I'm age 18-60 (If you're over the age 60, you may be a candidate if you're free from cataracts. If you have cataracts, cataract surgery may be an option for you. Cataract surgery is also a refractive surgery procedure, and is usually covered by insurance).
My vision has been stable for at least 2 years.
