LASIK allows people to perform most of their everyday activities without wearing any corrective lenses. If your vision is fully corrected with LASIK, you will need to wear glasses in your 40s or 50s due to presbyopia. But if you are interested in correcting your presbyopia and reduce the dependence upon the eye glasses, you can try the strategy known as monovision.This technique corrects your vision
to allow for near vision in one eye and distance vision in the other eye.Some patients respond so positively
to monovision demonstration with trial frames during preoperative evaluation.It is important to discuss
your lifestyle, including your work and recreational and leisure activities, with your eye surgeon before deciding
to go ahead with LASIK since some work, sports and other activities are not compatible with LASIK.
There are some important constraints to be considered before using LASIK eye surgery for correcting your vision in best way. The constraints are as follows;
You must be at least 18 years of age since the vision is changing for people who are below 18 years.
You must have good health condition since laser eye surgery is not recommended for people with diseases like lupus, diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts, cornea disorders and any retinal disease
You must not be pregnant or nursing since it may change the measured refraction of your eye.
You must have healthy eyes and prescription must also be stable. This is important because if you are already myopic then you should postpone the laser surgery till your refraction gets stabilized.
You must not have dry eye since the contact lenses or any medications can cause serious impact if you prefer laser eye surgery. Hence you must talk to your eye doctor before performing eye surgery.
Good health is significant for performing the LASIK eye surgery. It is because, if your body has trouble with healing from other diseases, then this increases the risk of unsatisfactory LASIK surgery outcome. If the age limits are not met, LASIK surgery is not done by the eye surgeons. The initial factor considered for choosing the good refractive surgeon is to verify the surgeon’s credentials by either state licensing boards or National Practitioner Data Bank. Surgeons must be a fellow of American College of Surgeons membership for performing the LASIK eye surgery. Check if your surgeon is board certified which means an entity recognized by American Board of Medical Specialists would have certified the surgeon to practice in their specialty. Moreover the surgeons if board certified, they would have completed specific training and perfect education about specialty. You can ask for a referral from your regular optometrist or ophthalmologist for knowing the best LASIK surgeon with best reputation in the profession. You can also choose good refractive surgeons by advertisements in newspapers given by refractive surgery centres. Check if the ads are informative than others or not.
