Not All Patients Are Good Candidates for LASIK

Not All Patients Are Good Candidates for LASIK

Not all patients are good candidates for Lasik. Some people have too thin of a cornea to have the Lasik procedure. Other individuals have an irregular shape to their cornea called karatoconus. In caritokonis the cornea is weaker than normal and the Lasik procedure can make the cornea buckle or become unstable. It’s critical to have a very thorough, comprehensive evaluation prior to the Lasik procedure. In our office we measure and map the cornea looking for any disorders which would make you a poor candidate.
