What are the limits of vision correction?

If you’re among the millions who struggle to read without glasses or contact lenses, you’re likely familiar with the frustrations they bring. Glasses and contacts, although helpful, can often be inconvenient, prone to smudging, and uncomfortable during extended wear.

Thankfully, there are modern solutions designed to help you achieve better vision without relying on these corrective lenses. However, it’s important to understand the limits of vision correction, and identify who is an ideal candidate for such procedures.

The limits of vision correction

First, let’s talk about the most popular form of permanent vision correction: surgery. There are several types of vision correction surgeries, such as All-Laser LASIK, PRK, and SMILE pro. These procedures use lasers to reshape the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, to improve vision.

While laser eye surgeries have proven highly effective for many, they are not universally suitable. Key considerations include age and the stability of your vision. For instance, individuals under 18 or those with fluctuating vision might need to wait to be deemed eligible for such procedures. Moreover, pre-existing eye conditions like glaucoma or cataracts, need to be addressed prior to considering vision correction surgery.

Are You a Suitable Candidate?

Determining if you’re a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery involves a comprehensive evaluation by experienced professionals. Factors such as your eye health, age, lifestyle, and the nature of your vision impairment play a crucial role in this assessment.

To begin understanding your eligibility, we invite you to book an appointment with our skilled team. In preparation for your consultation, you can also gain initial insights by taking our concise 1-minute self-test available on our website.
