Is Laser Surgery Right For You?

Laser surgery can improve your quality of life if you’ve always worn glasses or need a long-term eye care solution. With laser eye surgery, you can enjoy a low-maintenance eye solution and no longer worry about where you put your glasses or if you forgot to take out your contact lenses.

Our Visus Eyewear + Eyecare team can happily take you through a laser eye surgery consultation to discover if this treatment is right for you.

What Does Laser Eye Surgery Fix?

Laser eye surgery involves using a laser to reshape the front of the eye (cornea) to correct a refractive error. For people with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, laser surgery might be suitable for you. 

Different kinds of laser surgery are available, including LASIK and PRK. Based on your needs, your optometrist can help determine which would be a great fit for you during your consultation.

Am I Eligible for Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery could mean no more glasses—but there are some things to consider before you get it. First, we’ll determine whether you’re a candidate for laser eye surgery based on your eye health history and lifestyle.

Laser Surgery Might Be for You If…

  • You are 18 or above, ideally over 21, once eyes have stopped changing
  • You haven’t had a change in your prescription in at least a year
  • Your eye health is in good standing
  • You have thick enough corneas determined by your optometrist during an eye exam
  • You have an extreme refractive error or an unstable prescription
  • You are 18 years old
  • Your corneas are too thin
  • You have an existing eye condition, like keratoconus, glaucoma, dry eye, or cataracts
  • You have uncontrolled diabetes
  • You are pregnant or plan to be soon
