    Yes, lasik eye surgery is not for everyone. If you are myopic and your correction is less than -6.00 diopters, you can have lasik eye surgery. If you are hyperopic and your correction is +3.00 diopters or less, you can have lasik eye surgery too. If you have slight astigmatism or your body heals quickly, you can have this surgery. But I strongly suggest you to buy a pair of sunglasses after lasik surgery. I heard a guy said Firmoo has some free glasses if you participate in their activities. You can search on the internet. I dont know whether it is very difficult or not, you can just have a try.

    Dear friend, I think you also should consider the situations which will prevent you from having the lasik eye surgery. My doctor once told me that presbyopia, a condition brought on by the aging process, cannot be treated. The conditions such as unstable refractive error, active ocular disease, collagen or vascular disease, people who are under 20 years of age, pregnant women will prevent you from applying for lasik eye surgery.

    Most people are suitable for candidates for laser eye surgery. Those who are pregnant, have diabetes, keratoconus and some other rare conditions may be prohibited, but for most people the choice is theirs. Those under 18 need to wait, as the legal age for eye surgery for cosmetic reasons is 18. This is because eyes are still changing and developing until adulthood, so laser surgery would not be beneficial.

    You should be 18 years or older with no significant change in your spectacles or contact lens prescription for at least the last two years. There should be no medical history of any active eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment or keratoconus. Your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate after a comprehensive eye examination. He will also counsel you on the procedure and you should in turn take this opportunity to address any concerns that you may have about the procedure.
