Chicago residents with poor vision may be considering LASIK as a solution but have questions whether the procedure is right for them.
On his website is a short quiz to see if you’re a good candidate for LASIK. Not everyone is; about 1 candidate in 5 is ill suited to laser vision correction. Still, more than 20 million people worldwide have better vision thanks to this procedure.
Along with asking your age and medical history, the quiz inquires:
About your current vision problems and what you’re doing to correct them.
If you no longer want glasses or contacts to interfere with your enjoyment of sports and/or outdoor activities.
If you want to read without depending upon glasses.
Whether setting aside your contacts or glasses might improve your business activities and career path.
Once the quiz is completed, it will tell you how suitable a candidate you are for LASIK surgery. The quiz can even put you in touch with a consultant afterward.
Again, LASIK isn’t for everybody. A common reason for rejection is suboptimal corneal thickness. But those who have undergone the procedure will say, if you can, you should.
