*According to the American Refractive Surgery Council.

LASIK eye surgery has shown impressive success rates, and a vast majority of patients who have undergone LASIK are very satisfied with their results. 

Requirements for Undergoing LASIK Surgery

18 or Older 

Because the eyes of younger patients are still developing and changing, LASIK is only recommended for those who are 18 years or older. 

Corneal Thickness 

LASIK requires a tissue flap on the surface of the eye, so you should have sufficient corneal thickness to qualify for surgery. 

Healthy Eyes 

If you have corneal diseases, cataracts, glaucoma, or other ocular health issues, you might not be a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery.

Stable Vision

In order to undergo LASIK, your eyeglasses prescription should be stable. Otherwise, you might need to undergo additional touch-ups more frequently. 

Good Overall Health 

Because certain diseases can affect your candidacy for LASIK, our doctors will discuss your medical history with you to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. 

Regular-Size Pupils

Large pupils can increase your risk of post-surgical complications including halos, poor night vision, and glares following your LASIK procedure. 

Is LASIK Safe? 

In addition to its high satisfaction rates, LASIK is incredibly safe. According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, the procedure carries a less than one percent chance of surgical complications.

Statistics on LASIK

We are proud to share results of LASIK achieved by the doctors at Cornea Associates of Texas. This analysis is based on a retrospective review of 200 eyes with a minimum of 2 months follow up. All patients underwent Wavefront guided LASIK using the VISX Star S4 with Iris Registration technology.

PRK

The primary difference between PRK and LASIK is the location on the eye where the laser treatment is applied.  In LASIK, a flap is made in the cornea first and then the treatment is applied under that flap.  In PRK, no flap is made, the treatment is simply applied to the surface of the eye.
