Laser vision correction is a relatively safe procedure used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If you are trying to decide if it's right for you, it's best to discuss it with your doctor. You will need to undergo a complete eye exam that will look at the health of your eyes and determine the degree of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. You must be at least 18 years old, have a stable prescription, and have no active eye disease.
Ask yourself, are you tired of wearing glasses or contacts? Do you play sports where eyewear is getting in your way? Do you feel less attractive wearing glasses? Are you tired of hassling with contacts? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, and you want to eliminate or reduce your dependence on corrective lenses, you may want to consider laser vision correction.
