Are You A LASIK Candidate?
You may be a LASIK candidate if:
- You are over 18
- You have had stable vision for the past 2 years
- You have healthy eyes – free of diseases, scars and other health conditions
- You have realistic expectations for LASIK
A free VIP exam with us can further determine the most appropriate procedure for you. If you are pregnant or nursing you should wait to have LASIK, because these conditions may cause temporary and unpredictable changes in your cornea.
If you have been told that you are not a candidate for LASIK, we invite you to come in for a free VIP exam. In some cases, patients who have astigmatism, thin corneas, or wear reading glasses have been told they don’t have options. But, at the Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah, we are dedicated to offering the most advanced technology available today to our patients.We are proud to help more patients than ever before enjoy the freedom better vision provides thanks to CustomVue, All-Laser LASIK, new implantable lens technology, PRK and advanced lifestyle intraocular lenses.
