Am I a Candidate for LASIK Surgery?

At The Columbus Laser & Vision Institute, we look forward to determining your candidacy for laser vision correction. To be eligible for LASIK surgery, potential candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Be free of eye diseases including keratoconus, glaucoma, cataracts, corneal disease and certain retinal and optic nerve diseases.
  • Be in good general health, and should not have uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune or collagen vascular disease.
  • Vision must be stable for at least one year prior to the procedure date
  • Must NOT be pregnant or nursing
  • Must not wear contact lenses for a certain length of time prior to your LASIK surgery consultation and LASIK procedure
  • Should not continuously suffer from dry eyes

LASIK can be very successful when performed on the right patients, but it is not for everyone. This two-minute screening test can help you determine if you’re a good candidate.

This test does not substitute for a consultation. Please contact us to schedule a complete eye examination.
