Here are some general guidelines that can help you determine if you are a candidate for laser vision correction:
- You are at least 18 years old.
- You must have stable vision for at least one year (it’s not uncommon for young adults to experience changes in their contact lens or eyeglass prescription; vision tends to stabilize in the 20’s).
- You must have healthy eyes. Any condition that affects how well your eyes would heal after LASIK must be resolved prior to surgery.
- You must have no signs of keratoconus (which is an abnormal condition of the cornea) or glaucoma.
