“I’M NOT A CANDIDATE FOR LASIK?!”
Have you ever thought or heard you weren’t a good LASIK candidate? Truth is, you very well may be!
***At Saddleback Eye Center, we routinely turn away 20% of people who are NOT good candidates***
Many eye care professionals erroneously tell you that you are not a good candidate for LASIK because you are farsighted, have astigmatism, or just wear readers. Some may even provide you with an unreasonable LASIK eye surgery cost.
Saddleback Eye Center has been specializing in more challenging conditions since 1996 and has corrected all types of vision!
There are common vision problems suffered by many people across the nation:
- Farsightedness (Hyperopia) – Distant objects can be seen clearly while close-up objects are blurred.
- Nearsightedness (Myopia) – This when you can see close objects clearly but objects in the distance are blurry.
- Astigmatism – Inability to clearly see objects at any distance.
- Presbyopia (Reading glasses) – Patients over the age of 40-45 who need reading glasses because they can’t see objects up-close.
These problems that usually require the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses are caused by irregularities in the shape of the cornea. Fortunately, these common vision problems can be solved by an All-Laser Orange County LASIK Custom Surgery from Dr. Manger. Saddleback Eye Center’s acclaimed Orange County laser eye surgery called LASIK is the procedure you need if you suffer from any of these vision problems.
Some people have consulted eye doctors and have been told that LASIK can’t solve these vision problems. They have probably been told by doctors who haven’t performed the procedure and aren’t supportive of it. Dr. Charles Manger is an experienced Orange County LASIK surgery specialist who is ranked in the top 1% of LASIK surgeons in the United States. With his skill and extensive experience, he is confident in treating patients who suffer from common vision problems such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. He will also let you know everything you will expect on the day of the procedure. The precision of LASIK using All-Laser Custom LASIK technology often makes it possible for Dr. Manger to treat patients who have been turned down for LASIK before.
So why are these myths perpetuated?
- The eye doctor wants to keep you as a patient.
- The eye doctor isn’t up to speed with technology.
- People get advice from well-meaning friends/family who aren’t well-informed.
Being told that you’re not a good candidate for LASIK because you’re farsighted, nearsighted, have astigmatism, or wear reading glasses is oftentimes a myth and a common misconception about LASIK. Your vision is too important to believe in these misconceptions that prevent you from having a clear future with LASIK. Learn the truth about Orange County LASIK by consulting with an experienced eye doctor who uses state-of-the-art technology, like Dr. Manger.
