Is LASIK right for me? Am I a LASIK Candidate?


Is LASIK right for me? If you’ve ever asked this, the answer can only be determined by a thorough examination. At Dr. Manger’s office, we conduct the industry’s most comprehensive 14-point diagnostic exam, which takes approximately 2½ hours to complete.

Not everyone is a candidate for the LASIK procedure; even with the extensive and advanced technologies available to Dr. Manger, he will turn away 20% of LASIK applicants due to general eye health or corneal conditions.

To determine if you may be a candidate for LASIK, ask yourself these question:

  • Are you over 18?
  • Have you had a stable prescription for the past year?
  • Are you nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism?
  • Is your goal to see clearly without glasses or contacts?


If you answered yes to all of these questions, your next step is to schedule your free LASIK examination. Dr. Manger will answer any questions that you may have about LASIK and perform all of the necessary tests to determine if you are a good candidate.

Have you been told you are not a good candidate for LASIK?

Even if you’ve been turned down for LASIK in the past, All-Laser Custom LASIK opens the door to a whole new world with the potential for crisper, clearer vision.

Many times, eye doctors who do not perform LASIK surgery are not supportive of the procedure, and will tell patients that they are not good candidates for LASIK because they have astigmatism, need reading glasses, or other invalid reasons. However, most people who meet the general age and health requirements listed above are candidates for the latest custom LASIK procedures.
