LASIK versus Contacts: Which is Better for You?
Not every contact lens patient is suitable for LASIK surgery. Some of the reasons that you may not qualify (or want) LASIK include if you:
- Have a thin cornea
- Have unusual or severe astigmatism
- Have keratoconus, macular degeneration or other incompatible conditions
- Suffer from diabetes
- Take certain medications
- Have Glaucoma
There are other conditions that may preclude you from LASIK. Contact lenses can be an ideal long-term solution for those people who are unable to have LASIK surgery. For more information on contact lenses or to find out if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery, please contact Victoria Eye Associates in Victoria at 800-833-0234 or victoriaeyecenter.com.
