What Is LASIK?
Benefits of LASIK
Improve Your Vision
LASIK can treat the major refractive issues behind many eyesight problems. According to Cleveland Clinic, around 90% of LASIK eye surgery patients gain 20/20 to 20/40 vision from the procedure.
With a reduced dependence on corrective lenses, you can enjoy physical activities without worrying about breaking your glasses or losing a contact.
Quick and Effective
The results of LASIK surgery start to take effect almost immediately, and patients can expect to see the final life-changing results within six months of receiving the surgery.
Candidates for LASIK
While LASIK surgery is the most common laser treatment for visual corrections, some patients may not be good candidates for this procedure. Our doctors at Progressive Eye Care in South Jordan, UT, can examine your eyes and evaluate whether you're a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Candidates for LASIK vision corrections generally have:
- Finished growing (they are generally in their early 20s or older)
- Had no changes in their prescription for at least a year
- Good eye health, especially in relation to the corneas
Since the surgery works by reshaping the corneas, any health conditions affecting your corneas can impact your eligibility for LASIK. Other conditions like cataracts or glaucoma can also impact your ability to receive LASIK.
