Am I A Candidate?
Understanding LASIK candidacy
Are you a candidate for LASIK eye surgery?
Are you seeking LASIK eye surgery in Vermont? Determining your candidacy for LASIK eye surgery is the FIRST step to getting better vision through LASIK. You might wish to start understanding this process by taking our LASIK self-evaluation test. Not everyone is a candidate for the LASIK eye surgery procedure. Each individual person has extremely unique eyes. No two cornea maps are the same just like with a Fingerprint or DNA sample. This is why a pre-operative exam is absolutely necessary. Before LASIK is performed you will be required to undergo a series of diagnostic tests to determine the stability of your vision. After a thorough evaluation of your cornea, the doctors will be able to determine if you are a candidate.
