Not everyone is a candidate for laser vision correction. Your optometrist will do a thorough assessment to determine candidacy based on refraction, ocular health, corneal thickness and stability. They will advise you whether or not you might be a suitable candidate, the limitations of surgery, what to expect, and refer to a laser vision centre meeting our high standards of quality care.
