Is LASIK Right For You?

Spindel Eye Associates Offers LASIK Eye Surgery in Derry and Londonderry

LASIK Surgery in DerryNot everyone is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Before LASIK is performed, you will be required to undergo a series of tests to determine the stability of your vision. After a thorough evaluation of your cornea, the doctors will be able to determine if you are a candidate.

This thorough diagnostic examination is the first step to creating your best possible visual outcome.

Before you decide to have laser vision correction surgery, you need to know whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. The right way to do this is to talk with your eye care professional. Before you do so, this short quiz may help you be more informed when speaking to your doctor about laser vision correction.

The quiz will discuss some of the things that determine who is a good candidate for Custom LASIK and traditional LASIK treatment, and some of the factors that are important to consider. This quiz does not include all the considerations that must be made and does not substitute for a consultation with an eye care specialist.

To get started, fill in the information and then just click on the appropriate response to the following questions. Please be sure to answer all the questions.
