An accurate assessment of candidacy is crucial to the success of LASIK. To determine LASIK candidacy, we look at corneal curvature and thickness, tear film, and refractive errors. We also consider the patient's desired outcome to determine if LASIK is the best course of treatment.
Doctor: To determine if someone is a candidate for LASIK, there are a number of things that come into play. We need to look at corneal curvature, corneal thickness, tear film, refractive error, all those things that we would measure on the day of the pre-operative evaluation.
There are other factors that come into play too, looking at the patient's desired outcome, their personality traits to determine if their expectations are in line with what we can produce.
