Also, there must be any ocular health problems present, such as cataracts or untreated glaucoma. Sometimes, additional measurements are needed, such as increasing the thickness of the cornea, or perhaps a corneal surface mapping. Our ophthalmologists can ultimately determine whether you are a candidate for LASIK. Our ophthalmologists can ultimately determine whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
