Understanding Your LASIK Candidacy
There is perhaps nothing more important in the LASIK eye surgery process than determining your candidacy. If you are familiar with someone who has not had a good result the problems typically stem from poor judgement of candidacy. The candidacy process begins with a thorough eye health evaluation to check the overall health of your eye as well as the corneal thickness.
During your LASIK pre op exam, Dr. Balin will thoroughly examine your eyes and perform comprehensive testing to make sure that LASIK eye surgery is the right procedure for you.
A medical and eye history will be taken and several tests will be performed, including: ·
• Dry eye testing ·
• Visual acuity and refractive error ·
• Screening Visual Field ·
• Pupil size in low & medium light ·
• Ocular pressure ·
• General health of the eyes ·
• Corneal topography & Corneal thickness
