Find out if you are a candidate for LASIK
The number of persons that are suffering from vision problems is unfortunately very high and ever increasing these days due to numerous factors. Fortunately medicine and modern techniques in this domain evolved rapidly and nowadays we have another option for treating vision problems besides the already classic solutions, laser eye surgery.
Let's find out together which is the profile of a candidate for laser eye surgery, because from the beginning you have to know that not every person can go through this medical procedure and that the best chances of success are given for only a part of the total number of patients. Farsighted people can become patients, but chances are that they won't see a dramatic improvement after LASIK.
Not every visual disorder can be treated by LASIK and you need to know that nearsighted persons that are suffering especially from blurriness are the most common patients. Also, not every age is suitable for going through laser eye surgery. It is a known fact that children and teenagers cannot become patients because their vision is still developing and neither can elderly persons because the condition of their vision is not stable.
Some affections can exclude you from the list of LASIK patients and this should be known especially by the ones suffering from diabetes or from constantly dry eyes. Also, note that if you are a pregnant lady or you are still breastfeeding, it is strongly recommended to wait until this period passes before becoming a LASIK patient.
