Who can benefit from laser vision correction?
- Those who need glasses or contact lenses to see distant objects clearly and would like to get rid of these aids, should consider laser vision correction, if there are no medical contraindications.
- For those who need glasses for clear distance vision, but also need to use reading glasses, laser vision correction may improve distance vision clarity in some cases.
Vision correction interventions are never performed under the age of 18, and rarely above age 65. For those who only need glasses for reading, but have a clear distance vision, laser vision correction will unfortunately not help.
Pregnancy, breast-feeding, some internal medicine and ophthalmology disorders are contraindications, screening for these is a part of the detailed preoperative eye exam.
