Once you have decided you would like to undertake laser eye surgery the next step is to book in for a consultation to check you are suitable.
Whilst there is some variation between different clinics, the typical suitability rate is around 85%, meaning 15% of people are likely to be unsuitable for the surgery.
As laser eye surgery has improved over the years the prescription range has widened, meaning fewer people are beyond the treatable range. There are however certain general health conditions and eye conditions that may mean you are not a suitable candidate for surgery.
Better results with lower prescriptions: The higher your prescription the less chance you have of achieving perfect vision. This is especially true of long sighted prescriptions where the chances of achieving 20|20 vision reduces sharply with prescriptions over +3.00 Dioptres.
Better results with short sighted prescriptions: Short sighted prescriptions achieve better results than longsighted prescriptions and this is the same for low or high prescriptions. In addition to this, long sighed prescriptions show a much higher chance of regression than short sighted prescriptions and this is especially true if the correction is over +3.00 Dioptres.
As the technology has improved over the last 20 years the chances of achieving 20|20 vision has significantly increased.
