Dr. Rothman of LASIK of Nevada explains whether you’d be a good candidate for LASIK if you have a high prescription.
Many patients ask me if they can have LASIK if they have a high prescription. The answer is: Yes!
In the old days of LASIK in the 90’s when I started performing the procedure, the range of treatment was rather limited. In fact, initially it was only nearsighted people that could have the LASIK procedure. But over the past 25 years, the range of the prescription has been expanded to the point where if your vision is correctable with glasses or contacts, you’re probably going to be a great candidate for the LASIK procedure regardless of prescription.
