If You Don't Qualify for LASIK, There are Alternatives
Are you unhappy with your vision and have been told you are not a candidate for LASIK? If so, there are alternatives to LASIK, such as small incision lenticule extraction (ZEISS SMILE) and implantable contact lenses (ICL). Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or refractive lens exchange (RLE) may also be the answer. Wang Vision Institute is proud to offer different groundbreaking laser vision surgeries for individuals with common issues like nearsightedness and farsightedness.
Who does not qualify for LASIK?
There are many reasons someone might not qualify for traditional LASIK surgery. LASIK requires a certain cornea thickness and shape to be successful. If your corneas are thin or have an irregular shape, you may not be a suitable candidate. ZEISS SMILE and PRK are better in these cases, and in cases where patients have a higher potential for future eye trauma due to harsh job conditions or a highly active lifestyle.
