Q: Am I a candidate for LASIK if I have dry eyes?

A: Possibly.

Regarding dry eyes, we do need to see you, and perform a thorough evaluation and measurement, of your dry eyes, and determine if it needs treatment, and if it does, what are the optimal treatment, prior to laser vision correction.

With the current technology in both dry eye treatment and in laser vision correction, we are able to treat the dry eyes in many patients and have enabled them to enjoy a new vision with laser vision correction.

Of course not all patients are candidates. We will assess your eyes carefully and fully and determine if you are a candidate.
