					Before you can undergo the process of having laser eye surgery, someone has to
determine which one is right for you. There are some problems that cannot be
corrected by laser eye to treatment. This is why your healthcare provider must do an
intake that follows a specific process. This way they can find out the best procedure to
correct your vision. Your vision is a very personal thing, and that the treatment to
correct your sight has to be personalized just as much.
  Clinically speaking, the procedure to determine whether not you are a good
candidate or laser eye treatment is relatively simple. It will follow the information
outlined here and you will be able to find out you are a good candidate for a laser eye
treatment, such as Lasik or any other type of laser eye surgery for that matter. Be very
wary of any practice that skips this step. You should plan for a preliminary visit so
that you can learn about the practice in the procedure, and the Dr. can complete the
appropriate assessment.
  Options for laser eye treatment
  There are three kinds of laser treatment you can benefit from. Lasik eye surgery is
one of the common and may be exactly what you need. In it, a portion of the cornea is
removed, and the underlying tissue is shaped in such a way as to correct the light as it
enters the eye. This is a very simple procedure and it is one of the reasons why Lasik
is one of the most popular laser eye treatments. Another source of its popularity is the
fact that the recovery time is very short. If you choose this kind of surgery, you will be
very pleased at each step of the process.
  Another option is LASEK eye surgery. It is not as widely known as other types of
eye surgery, but it may be an option instead of the more common laser eye surgery. In
it, the top layer of the cornea is removed and a contact lens is placed where the tissue
was removed. The lens is then left in place and the healing process will shape the
cornea to fit the lens. After the healing is done, the lens is removed. While this
procedure has a longer recovery time than other laser eye treatments, it is still out of
the most reliable kinds of corrective procedures.
  Finally, you could consider Epi-LASIK surgery. This combines the best of both of
the other kinds of surgery, Lasek as well as Lasik. As the popularity of this procedure
increases, more and more people will find a positive outcome that exceed most kinds
of laser eye treatment or any kind of laser eye surgery. Be sure to ask your doctor
about success rates and postoperative infections. If they have a customer service
survey, be sure to ask for the results of their last one. If a good practice will not only
have the necessary technical sophistication, they will have a high degree of customer
service. In the world of laser eye treatments, you will find that one does accompany
the other.
