Based on your age and other answers, there is over 80% chance that you’re a candidate for Laser Vision Correction (All-Laser LASIK, Epi-LASIK/PRK or SMILE LASIK), but it is difficult to determine which procedure is MOST appropriate for you without knowing your exact prescription, corneal thickness and corneal shape. That’s why we recommend scheduling your free consultation, so we can determine your best and safest option. Learn more about your potential options:
All-Laser Wavefront LASIK is the most common type of Laser Vision Correction procedure performed in the United States. LASIK is FDA-approved to treat up to -12.0 diopters of nearsightedness and 6.o diopters of astigmatism, as long as certain measurements are within normal range to be medically advisable. Wavefront Epi-LASIK may be the procedure of choice if your corneas are thin or asymmetrically-shaped.
For all patients over age 40, it is also important to understand about an age-related change that affects near vision, called Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (Presbyopia). Depending on your specific scenario and near vision requirements, at your consultation we will discuss an option called Monovision (“Blended Vision”) as a way to help preserve near vision as you age.
