Can I have Laser Eye Surgery?
The answer to that question in most cases is: ‘yes, you can!’ Because of the innovative technology behind Z-LASIK, most people are now suitable candidates for laser eye surgery.
Even if you were turned down in the past – perhaps because of a severe glasses prescription, astigmatism or thin corneas – you may now be able to enjoy the benefits of clearer vision without glasses or contacts, thanks to Z-LASIK laser eye surgery.
Are you suitable for laser eye surgery?
To be suitable for laser eye surgery, there are a few basic health and age requirements you must meet. You should:
- Be in good general health
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Have had a stable glasses prescription for at least 2 years
- Have no history of eye injuries or diseases
