If you’re tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses, you may wonder whether LASEK surgery is right for you. After all, LASEK surgery has a successful history and most patients are satisfied with their results.
Potential patients rely heavily on LASEK reviews from family, friends and colleagues. When researching LASEK surgery, it is important to read LASEK reviews by patients who have had the procedure and can speak to their experience.
After reading through BoozmanHof LASEK reviews, the most important step is to schedule an exam with Dr. Cole to determine if you are a good candidate for LASEK surgery. Although LASEK surgery is a popular and successful vision correction method for many patients, it isn’t the most appropriate option for everyone, and it does come with some risk.
During LASEK eye surgery in Rogers, Dr. Cole creates a flap in the cornea and then uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct refractive error problems in the eye. LASEK surgery is best suited for patients who have a moderate degree of refractive error causing:
- Nearsightedness (myopia), in which you see nearby objects clearly, but distant objects are blurry
- Farsightedness (hyperopia), in which you can see far objects clearly, but nearby objects are blurry
- Astigmatism, which causes overall blurry vision
Patients with dry eye syndrome, thin corneas, certain medical conditions or diseases, as well as other issues, may disqualify them from being a good LASEK candidate. A successful surgical outcome depends on careful evaluation of your eyes before the surgery.
