Nowadays LASIK has become the most popular treatment among those who want to correct their vision in the easiest and fastest manner. If you are wearing glasses or contact lenses, you also might want to undergo this surgery and have a permanent clear vision. But you should remember that Lasik is not for everyone. There are certain specifications which decide whether you are a right candidate for LASIK. As the pioneer of LASIK treatment in Dubai, we will take you through our advanced tests with the latest technology and affirm whether you can undergo this surgery.
You must be over 18 years old (21 years for some types of lasers). The view of people under 18 continues to change. You also can not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Both conditions could change the measurement values of the refraction of the eyes. You should not be taking certain prescription medications, such as oral Accutane or prednisone.
Your eyes must be healthy with a stable refraction. If you are nearsighted, you should postpone the LASIK procedure until the refraction of your eyes stabilizes. In some patients, myopia can continue to increase until 25-30 years of age.
You must be in good health. The LASIK procedure is not recommended for patients with diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, glaucoma, eye infections caused by herpes, cataracts, disorders of the cornea and the retina. Talk to your surgeon about your general health.
If you have a history of dry eyes or “dry eye” you should have an examination. If you have eye dryness problems caused by the use of contact lenses, by taking certain medications or for some other reason, talk with your ophthalmologist about the impact that the LASIK procedure could have. Before a LASIK procedure or other type of refractive surgery, you must undergo an examination to determine if you have dry eyes.
