Am I a Candidate for Laser Vision Correction?
Before scheduling your surgery, you'll need to go through the following steps to determine whether or not you're a good candidate for laser vision correction:
- Schedule a complete vision exam at our office if you have not undergone an exam in the past 12 months.
- If the findings of the exam indicate you may be a good candidate, Wright Vision Care (WVC) will arrange for you to undergo the second qualifying step. We will send you to The Laser Center (TLC) for other tests, including an Orbscan and Wavefront Analysis.
- After review of all the findings WVC and TLC will inform you of your options and schedule the surgery if you desire.
