If you would like to have greater independence from your contact lens or eyeglasses and still enjoy excellent vision, the solution is LASIK surgery, the revolutionary procedure done with lasers that improves your vision permanently. At NV Eye Surgery, you can depend on the expert care and attention to detail that we’re dedicated to. We want you to be aware of the eligibility requirements for this treatment so that you can determine if you’re a good candidate for it.
On the most basic level, your eyes must be in a generally healthy condition. That makes sense, though. Any non-emergency surgery is going to require a certain degree of health before proceeding. It’s important that you have no current or previous corneal disease, and that your corneas are free of scars, infections, or other abnormalities. Your current corrective eyewear prescription should be within acceptable limits, which is something our LASIK surgeon in Henderson will discuss with you. There is also an age limit. You must be at least 18 to get this laser eye procedure. Other factors that may affect your eligibility are being pregnant or nursing, taking some medications, and having an autoimmune disorder. As part of an initial medical history taken, our LASIK surgeon in Henderson will be able to let you know if you can go ahead with the treatment. The actual process is quite simple. It is performed under local anesthesia, only takes a few minutes per eye, has a success rate of over 90%, and will typically result in improved vision by the very next day or possibly even later the day of surgery.
Reach out to our office and arrange a time to come in for an appointment to see our LASIK surgeon in Henderson for a consultation and testing to decide your eligibility for this safe, effective eye surgery.
