Who's a Good Candidate for a LASIK Procedure?

ENGLISH:

LASIK can be very successful when performed on the right patients, but it is not for everyone. In general, good candidates must be of a certain age, have had a stable prescription during the last 12 months, a diagnosed refractive error and healthy eyes.

If you are interested in this procedure, you should ask your doctor to determine whether or not LASIK is a safe and viable option to improving your vision. This decision will be based on a special series of tests as well as a detailed medical history.
