Today, LASIK eye surgery is one of the most popular and safest eye surgeries performed. It is used to treat low to high levels of different refractive errors. These refractive errors can be either nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. If you are looking for a highly experienced ophthalmologist to perform your LASIK surgery in Seattle, you will definitely want to come to see us at our vision practice; our ophthalmology practice is the most experienced refractive/LASIK surgery provider in our area. Before receiving LASIK surgery, you will need to go through a pre-surgical exam to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure. LASIK surgery is an extremely safe and effective procedure for the good candidate; however, if for some reason you are not a good candidate for the procedure, the procedure may not work well for you, or your vision can even be made worse. For these reasons, you will need to go through this screening process so that our eye doctor can determine whether or not you are a good candidate, before proceeding. In order to be a good candidate for LASIK it is important that you are over 18 years of age and have not had a lens prescription change in the past year or two. Your eyes will also need to be thoroughly examined for any types of disease or disorder. It will also need to be checked that your refractive errors fall within the parameters that can be corrected by the surgery.
