Laser vision correction has been practiced for over 25 years to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. Over 30 million procedures have been performed, making laser refractive surgery one of the most popular surgical procedures in the world.
Prospective patients are given a first consultation to determine whether laser correction is an option for them. In general, the following eligibility criteria must be met:
Age: candidates must be over 18 years old.
General health: candidates must be in good health and not suffer from certain pathologies such as poorly controlled diabetes or autoimmune disease. Taking immunosuppressive drugs is a contraindication.
Eye health: conditions such as keratoconus, certain corneal infections or cataracts are contraindications.
Pregnancy / breast-feeding: laser procedures are contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation.
Stability of eyesight: the strength of prescription glasses/lenses must have been stable for at least one year before the procedure.
The determination of your eligibility is made during a pre-operative check-up on an individual basis taking into account many factors. Even if you are not a good candidate right now, you could be one in the future.
