Laser Eye Surgery is Not Always Recommended

Lasik Surgery Isn’t For Everyone

Lasik surgery is generally not recommended for patients presenting with non correctable vision problems. Non correctable vision problems may include any condition where the vision cannot be corrected to a useful degree with either glasses, contacts, or refractive surgery (Lasik/PRK). Lasik is usually not recommended for patients that have abnormally thin, extremely warped, or extremely damaged corneas (clear window at the front of the eye). Lasik is also not recommended for people that present with double vision because of an abnormal eye turn (strabismus) that is only corrected with glasses, it is recommended that these patients be consulted by a strabismus surgeon prior to proceeding with Lasik. Lasik surgery is generally not performed on patients with active ocular disease or infection, as well as patients with certain uncontrolled system problems, such as uncontrolled diabetes. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Lasik surgery is to visit Global Laser Vision in San Diego today for a comprehensive Lasik Consultation.
