One of the really important factors that will help determine whether you’re a good candidate for laser or not, is your corneal thickness.
We use an instrument called a corneal topographer, which measures your corneal thickness beforehand.
The reality is that most people’s corneas are thick enough to have laser surgery. The only exception is for people that have very thin corneas, in which case, we may consider another procedure.
It is often those who are very long-sighted or short-sighted who we consider to be unsuitable because this will require removing more tissue. It’s important that we measure corneal thickness to check if your cornea is too thin prior to treatment.
Other types of laser procedures include custom surface or PRK, as well as ICL. The best way to help determine this is to come and see us, and let us take a look. If need be, we can then take into consideration a range of suitable options.
