YOUR CURRENT EYESIGHT

LASIK eye surgery can help to improve your vision if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
and can help to eliminate your need for glasses or contacts.

Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness (or myopia) means that you can see objects up close clearly, but have trouble seeing objects far away.

Farsightedness

Farsightedness (or hyperopia) means that you can see distant objects clearly, but struggle to see objects close to you.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a condition that causes your overall vision to be blurry at any distance, both near and far.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR LASIK

  • Age

    Must be at least 18 years of age.

  • Overall Health

    Must be in good general health and free of infection or an autoimmune disease that may affect healing.

  • Eye Health

    Must be free of certain eye diseases like keratoconus, cataracts, retinal diseases, ocular herpes simplex, and ocular herpes zoster as well as eye infections or injury.

  • Stable Vision

    Must have had stable vision for at least one year prior to surgery.

  • Pregnancy/Nursing

    Must not be pregnant/nursing during time of procedure. You are welcome to come in for your consultation while pregnant/nursing, but the procedure cannot occur while you are pregnant/nursing as hormonal changes can affect the stability of your prescription.

  • Contact Use

    Must be willing to stop contact lens use 2-4 weeks prior to pre-op exam and procedure. Contact lenses change the shape of the cornea and could affect the results of your surgery.

  • Pupil Size & Cornea Thickness

    Pupil size and cornea thickness affect your eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. These factors will be taken into consideration by the doctor during your initial consultation.

PRK Eye Surgery

Depending on your pupil size and cornea thickness, you might be a candidate for PRK eye surgery instead of LASIK.

Eye Exam

The last step in determining if you are eligible for LASIK is to have an eye exam. Dr. Nahl offers a free consultation in which she will determine the procedure that is right for you and your specific needs.
