With an almost unlimited amount of information on the internet, someone could easily find themselves caught in an endless research cycle. The same is true for researching LASIK. The very best way to find out if you’re a candidate for LASIK is by scheduling a consultation at a LASIK center. There are a few self-assessments you can consider before scheduling your LASIK consultation. You can also take our LASIK self test to get started.
To help us determine what vision correction we suggest for patients we often start by asking, do you wear glasses or contacts and has your prescription remained the same? Are you over the age of 17? ClearChoice LASIK Eye will perform LASIK on qualified individuals who are 17 with a parent’s consent and who’ve had a stable eye prescription for 2 years.
Are you pregnant or breastfeeding? The curve of the cornea can change during pregnancy due to hormonal fluctuations, and in some cases a mother’s vision can change while carrying or nursing a baby. It’s suggested that women wait until 3-6 months after breastfeeding has ended to move forward with your LASIK procedure.
What’s coming up for you in the next couple months? Weddings? Travel? What do you have on your personal calendar the weeks following your surgery? One of the most common responses to why someone wants LASIK is to see their children while swimming. Many of our patients have LASIK then drive and go to work the next day. And Patients love that we do surgery almost every Friday of the year.
The costs associated with LASIK are not regularly covered by most health insurances, many individuals find themselves saving for the procedures and setting goals for when they will feel financially ready to pay for LASIK. The good news is you can use FSA and HSA accounts to help defer the cost of LASIK so you’re using pre-tax dollars. Plus, ClearChoice LASIK Eye offers payment programs so you can make monthly payments that work within your budget.
At ClearChoice LASIK Eye we want to see everyone who’s interested in learning more about LASIK. Educating our patients on LASIK procedures is our top priority. We have five different lasers in our surgery suites so that we can make sure the patient is matched with the best technology for their anatomy.
