Am I A Candidate for Lasik

Lasik Vision Correction Procedure

Dr. Cohen will only perform a laser vision correction procedure on qualified candidates. In order to be qualified, patients must meet the following Lasik requirements:

  • Nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism
  • Over the age of 18
  • Have stable vision for 1-2 years
  • No current eye problems
  • No health issues that may affect the eyes

If you have determined that you meet the above basic requirements for LASIK, you can take the LASIK Self-Evaluation test to further determine if you are a candidate. Because each set of eyes is unique it is important to have your eyes examined by a board-certified ophthalmologist, like Dr. Cohen prior to the LASIK procedure. Below is a list of some items that are typically involved with the evaluation process: 

  • The measurement of corneal thickness, including corneal topography
  • Complete review of overall eye health
  • The measurement of your prescription or refractive errors
  • Custom LASIK measurement for higher order aberrations.
  • Dry eye test
  • Complete dilation to view the back of the eye or the retina
  • Glasses or contact lens history review
  • Measurement of pupil size

Do I meet the qualifications for Lasik? After Dr. Cohen has completed the LASIK evaluation exam he will be able to determine if you are a strong LASIK candidate. If you are not a suitable candidate for LASIK, there are a number of alternative vision correction procedures available.
