Who Should Not Have Lasik?

Who Should Not Have Lasik?
Lasik is the surgical procedure performed with a laser to correct vision. Lasik is not a procedure that is for everyone. Lasik is not designed for a certain type of person in mind, but it is definitely a procedure that is not intended for many people. Here is some information that will help you decide if Lasik is not for you.

Lasik is not for any one not willing to take the risk of loss of vision or the risk of complications associated with Lasik. You should also check with your job before having Lasik vision correction, as some professions prohibit refractive surgeries. Lasik is not a procedure that should be performed on anyone who is still undergoing changes in their vision. This includes any one younger than 25, anyone who suffers from diabetes, anyone pregnant or breast feeding or who are taking medications that may cause vision fluctuations. Anyone who has hormonal fluctuations should also discuss with their physician the risks associated with Lasik as hormones can cause vision changes.

Lasik is also not for anyone who has difficulty healing due to diseases or medications that prevent healing. This may include those with autoimmune diseases, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, or anyone taking steroids or other medications that may slow the healing process.

There are many risks and complications associated with Lasik vision correction procedures. Those who fit into one or more of the above categories should consider alternatives to Lasik and discuss their concerns with their medical physician as well as their ophthalmologist.

ALWAYS contact a physician for more information!
