Can LASIK Give Me 20/20 Vision?

You may be surprised to learn that over 14 million people have improved their vision through LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, often for people who have worn corrective lenses their entire lives.

LASIK is a quick and painless procedure and many financing options are available to help people afford to see without glasses. So why doesn't everyone who wears glasses get LASIK? The answer is that every person has unique characteristics that may not be suitable for this common procedure. Just because “Bill” has the same corrective lens prescription as “Mary” who was a good LASIK candidate, only a LASIK-trained ophthalmologist can determine whether or not “Bill” meets the LASIK criteria.

At Buckley Chang Eye Institute, our team of LASIK experts rejects 15% of LASIK applicants in favor of a different type of vision correction procedure. We don’t want you wasting your money on LASIK if it cannot give you 20/20 vision.

You May Not Be a LASIK Contender if You:

  • Are under age 18
  • Have corneas that are too thin
  • Are frequently changing your corrective lens prescriptions due to vision changes
  • Suffer from uncontrolled degenerative or autoimmune diseases or other medical conditions
  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have set unrealistic expectations about your future vision
  • Think that you will never need glasses again (you may require reading glasses somewhere between the ages of 40 and 55, with our without LASIK)
  • Do not want to know the risks of LASIK

Another reason some people do not pursue LASIK is simply due to fear. When you choose a reputable and experienced physician to perform your LASIK procedure, you can set your mind at ease…someone like Dr. Britt Buckley, who has performed over 35,000 vision correction procedures. Dr. Buckley is just one of six outstanding doctors at Buckley Chang Eye Institute who are ready to help you fully understand every step of the LASIK procedure.
