Here are some factors that can determine whether or not you are a good candidate:
- You must be older than 21.
- You must have a stable prescription for at least one year.
- You do not have cataracts.
- Women who are pregnant or nursing may be candidates in the future but cannot undergo refractive surgery while pregnant or nursing.
Most patients who come to us for vision correction are excellent candidates for refractive surgery. Most important to Dr. Jenkins is determining whether laser refractive surgery is the right procedure for the patient. During the screening process, extensive testing is done at no charge to the patient to make that determination. Dr. Jenkins will evaluate your eyes during your complimentary refractive screening appointment and discuss how to get you to 20/20.
