Am I a LASIK Candidate?

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 the poor judgment 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.
