- Are 21 years of age or older
- Have healthy eyes
- Have a stable glasses’ prescription for one year or more
- Have a prescription from -11.00 diopters of nearsightedness up to +5.00 of farsightedness, or an astigmatism of up to 5.00 diopters.

To ensure that you are a candidate, you will need to have a comprehensive evaluation at our office. There we will determine your candidacy and review all the options and details of the LASIK procedure, including financing options.
