Lasik Vision Correction Procedure



Try The Lasik Self-Test



Dr. Cohen will only perform a laser vision correction procedure on qualified candidates. In order to be qualified, patients must meet the following Lasik requirements:

      • Nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism
      • Over the age of 18
      • Have stable vision for 1-2 years
      • No current eye problems
      • No health issues that may affect the eyes

Because each set of eyes is unique it is important to have your eyes examined by a board-certified ophthalmologist, like Dr. Cohen prior to the LASIK procedure. Below is a list of some items that are typically involved with the evaluation process: 

      • The measurement of corneal thickness, including corneal topography
      • Complete review of overall eye health
      • The measurement of your prescription or refractive errors
      • Custom LASIK measurement for higher order aberrations.
      • Dry eye test
      • Complete dilation to view the back of the eye or the retina
      • Glasses or contact lens history review
      • Measurement of pupil size

Do I meet the qualifications for Lasik? After Dr. Cohen has completed the LASIK evaluation exam he will be able to determine if you are a strong LASIK candidate. If you are not a suitable candidate for LASIK, there are a number of alternative vision correction procedures available.
