While many people are good candidates for laser eye surgery, these procedures aren’t for everyone. The six general guidelines below are a good start to help you determine if LASIK or PRK is for you.
If you are not a candidate for LASIK, you may qualify for another laser eye surgery such as PRK (similar to LASIK but without the flap). This procedure is better-suited to people with very thin corneas or with pre-existing conditions. Always make your decision in conjunction with your doctor.
