As most patients know, LASIK is not an excellent option for everyone. Some patients may not be ideal candidates because their prescription is outside recommended limits, their corneas may be too thin or their may simply be a better procedure for their particular visual problem. Many Raleigh NC area patients have consulted us after finding out that they faced unexpected risks or an uncertain result with LASIK. Many were pleasantly surprised to learn the solution to their visual problem was implantable lenses, refractive lens exchange, Intacs or some other procedure that they may never have heard of. For many patients, LASIK offers the chance for spectacle and contact lens independence. Other patients may find that one of several other vision correction procedures might be a better choice. If you are contemplating LASIK, you owe it to yourself to contact a center like the Laser Eye Center of Carolina that offers more than LASIk to be assured that you are offered the best procedure for your unique vision problem.
