For a variety of reasons, many people are not good candidates for Lasik Eye Surgery. The only way to conclusively find out is if you have a Lasik Eye exam. This is different than the exams provided by your optometrist. The one point of overlap with your Optometrist is the Lasik consultant will confirm your prescription. They will also ask questions to help determine the rate at which your eyes may be changing.
All testing is reviewed immediately by the attending doctor who will have a conversation with you about the test results. If appropriate, they will explain what type of Lasik procedure would be best for you.
If you then wish to proceed with Lasik surgery they will schedule you for a full eye dilation previous to the surgery to make sure they have not missed anything. This is usually performed by your regular Optometrist or it can be provided by the Lasik surgeon’s onsite Optometrist as well.
