Who should consider LASIK?

If you are in good health, aged 21 and over and are realistic about what LASIK can achieve then this is a good option.

It will also help if your eye prescription has been stable for the last 12 months.

It has been proved to be an effective treatment for short-sight, long-sight and astigmatism. It is not a solution to the problem of long-sightedness caused by the ageing process or ‘presbyopia’.

There is a non-laser treatment called CK or Conductive Keratoplasty which can solve this problem.

LASIK is not advisable if your corneas are too thin. In this case,
Epi-LASEK or Implantable Contact Lenses are viable options.

LASIK is a more advanced form of laser surgery than PRK but, it is more complex which does mean a greater risk of complications.
