Your eye is a camera, and refractive surgery is like fixing the lens, but if there’s something wrong with the mechanics of your eyes, vision correction is typically not recommended. We perform a number of tests on all of our LASIK patients to ensure that you’re a good candidate for laser eye surgery.

LASIK may not be recommended if:

  • Your corneas are too thin.
  • Your prescription is too big or too small.
  • There is an issue with your retinal pathology.

Learn more about your LASIK candidacy from Dr. Kim in the video above.
