If glasses and contacts are getting in the way of your activities and lifestyle choices then you might be ready to seriously consider LASIK eye surgery. This procedure can correct the vision of people who have hyperopia, myopia, and/or astigmatism. There are a few requirements that can help determine if you are a candidate for LASIK, such as: you must be at least 21 years of age, must have a normal cornea topography, no history of any autoimmune diseases, and must not have changed any eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions in the last year or two. LASIK eye surgery has changed the lives of millions. The benefits are great and the risks are low but ultimately an ophthalmologist will be able to give you the best advice as to whether you are a suitable candidate or not.
