Are you becoming tired of having to reach for your eyeglasses the first thing in the morning in order to see clearly? If so, you may be a good candidate for getting LASIK surgery. At A Visual Affair, our optometrist in Arlington, Dr. Bindal, can determine whether or not you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery.

In order to get LASIK surgery, a patient needs to go through a screening process to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for the procedure. LASIK is an extremely safe and effective procedure for qualified patients. However, if a patient does not meet the necessary qualifications, their vision may not be adequately improved from the surgery, or their vision may even become worse. For this reason, pre-LASIK exams are necessary. During a pre-LASIK exam at our office, our optometrist in Arlington can determine whether or not you meet the eligibility requirements for this surgery. It is important that you are over the age of 18. You also should not have had any prescription lens change made over the past year or so. Our optometrist will also determine what type of vision correction you will need from the surgery. It needs to fall within certain parameters of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. LASIK surgery can correct all three of these refractive errors within certain ranges. It is also important that your cornea is determined to be thick enough for the procedure. This is because the surgery is performed through a tiny flap that is made in your cornea. Your cornea needs to be thick enough to be able to endure the surgical process, and to heal thoroughly. Our optometrist will also talk to you about other options that are available to you to have your vision corrected.
