“Is LASIK Right For Me?”

Approximately 80% of the people who have LASIK vision correction are age 25 to 40, are nearsighted and want to improve their distance vision.  LASIK gives them good vision may last the rest of their lives. If you are farsighted, the results are less dramatic.  Farsighted candidates for LASIK typically fall into the 40 to 60 age range, and they have blurred vision for both near and far.  About 1 in 5 of them will have a LASIK “monovision” procedure.  With monovision, one eye is corrected for focusing at a distance, and the other eye is corrected for reading and performing tasks that require good close-up vision. If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, you should postpone having a vision correction procedure. Your eyes are unique and these guidelines may not be relevant to your situation.  The only good way to determine if YOU are a candidate for LASIK is to call (843) 881-EYES (3937) to schedule a complimentary (as in FREE!) consultation.  In the meantime, you may want to take the LASIK quiz at DrKerrySolomon.com.
