Who Can Benefit from Laser Eye Surgery?
The first step in exploring the possibility of laser eye surgery is a comprehensive eye exam and consultation. We’ll begin by taking a detailed look at your eyes and learning more about your health history and lifestyle needs.
We’ll also discuss your expectations for the surgery. Many people achieve 20/20 vision after their procedure, but there are people who need glasses or contact lenses post-surgery. In most cases, laser eye surgery decreases reliance on corrective lenses.
In order to be considered a candidate for laser eye surgery, your eyes must be in good health. Infections, severe dry eye, or recent trauma may mean you'll need to delay the procedure.
Here are a few other considerations for surgery:
- You must be 18 years of age or older
- Your refractive error must not be too great
- Your prescription must be stable

What Is Laser Eye Surgery?
Laser eye surgery is a group of procedures—all just a little bit different—that use a laser to correct refractive errors in your vision.
Technological advances have made several types of laser vision correction possible, but the 2 most common types remain LASIK and PRK.
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) involves a surgeon cutting a flap in your cornea. This flap is then folded back and the remaining layers are reshaped with a precision laser.
Once the reshaping is complete, the surgeon will return the flap to its original position and the cornea will repair itself. Post-surgery surveys report high levels of satisfaction with LASIK.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) involves the surgeon removing the top layer of the cornea altogether, then reshaping the remaining layers.
