When will I know it is the right time to have laser eye surgery?
Hi, it’s Dr. Chotiner from Memorial Eye Institute. If you’re tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses, you may be wondering ‘when is the right time to have laser eye surgery?’, read on as I explain…
When weighing up the decision, there are considerations that must be made by yourself and your surgeon beforehand.
You must be aware of the possible side effects and complications, the expected outcome and the cost. Importantly, before a LASIK procedure, your eye surgeon will need to assess your eyes to ensure you’re a suitable candidate.
We will consider factors like age, vision prescription and eye health, and take detailed measurements.
When it comes to LASIK eye surgery, there are no right answers. Carefully consider these factors, weigh your preferences and risk tolerance, and make sure you have realistic expectations.
Talk to an eye surgeon with whom you feel confident and get your questions answered. In the end, if it feels right, then proceed, but if it doesn’t, don’t rush into anything.
With that said, the sooner you have laser eye surgery, the sooner you can experience the many lifestyle benefits of being free of glasses and contact lenses.
