Am I A Candidate

Not everyone is a candidate for LASIK. Find out why.

Not all people are candidates for LASIK eye surgery in Georgia. The only way to know for sure is by a thorough in-office LASIK evaluation.

Marietta Eye Clinic provides free LASIK Consultations to ensure your eyes are right for LASIK. By only performing LASIK on good candidates, we maintain our excellent surgical track record and ensure your safety. The reason this pre-operative exam is so important is because no two eyes are the same, just like a fingerprint or DNA sample. Our exam allows us to identify the unique nuances of your eyes. The exam includes:

  • Corneal thickness testing
  • Pupil size measurement
  • Dry eye evaluation
  • Tests to analyze the shape of your cornea
  • Measure the level of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism

  • History of healthy eyes
  • No signs of Keratoconus
  • No severe dry eye syndrome
  • Over 18 years of age
