Who is not an ideal candidate for LASIK?

LASIK may not be the best solution for you if you:

  • have a vision prescription that has changed four full steps or more on the eye exam in the last year (-1.00D).
  • are pregnant.
  • have uncontrolled or untreated eye disease.
  • have a corneal dystrophy or a history of herpetic keratitis (a herpes infection in the eye), or autoimmune disorders such as lupus.
  • are on certain medications, including Accutane.
