LASIK versus Contacts: Which is Better for You?

LASIK_vs_Contacts.jpgSome contact lens wearers eagerly wait for the day when they can afford or qualify for LASIK surgery.  But is LASIK right for every contact lens wearer?

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.
