If you are tired of having to depend on prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses in order to see clearly, you may be thinking about getting LASIK vision correction. If this is the case, visit us at Focus Vision Care to see our 10314 best eye doctor, Dr. Jyotsna Jain, for a pre-LASIK vision correction exam.
LASIK vision correction can reshape your cornea so you can see clearly without eyeglasses. LASIK is considered to be an extremely safe and effective surgery. However, if you are not a good candidate for the procedure, the surgery may not work as it is meant to, or may even make your vision worse. For this reason, eye doctors will not perform LASIK surgery on patients who have not been cleared for the treatment. Many patients come to our vision practice so that they can have a laser vision correction exam performed by our optometrist. Our 10314 best eye doctor will give you a comprehensive vision exam, and ask you many questions about your medical and eye health, to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for LASIK. It is generally required that a candidate for LASIK surgery is over 18 years of age. It is also important that you have had a stable lens prescription for the past year or two. Our eye doctor will also measure the thickness of your cornea. In order to have successful LASIK surgery, your cornea must be of a certain thickness so that the surgeon can safely create a corneal flap through which the surgery will be performed. Our eye doctor will also check that the vision correction you require falls within certain parameters. Our eye doctor will also discuss other vision correction methods with you. It is also important that you do not have any eye diseases which could affect the effectiveness of the surgery, so your eyes will be thoroughly screened for eye diseases during our LASIK consultation.
