Tips on whether laser eye surgery is right for you

Contact lens wearers and other people considering laser eye surgery have been issued with a number of tips on what makes the ideal candidate for the treatment.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology, in cooperation with the US National Library of Medicine, states people should be at least 18 years old, but also notes in some cases a child with one very nearsighted eye and one regular one could benefit from the intervention.

Women thinking about the treatment should not be pregnant or nursing when they have the procedure carried out.

In addition, people should ensure they are in good overall health, without chronic conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, web resource WFMJ.com reports.

Concluding, the resource states individuals considering undergoing the surgery should have healthy eyes with vision prescriptions that are relatively stable.

Continuous wear contact lenses can be a viable option for those who choose not to go under the laser. They allow more air to reach the eye and can therefore be worn overnight.

Wearers of extended wear contacts can benefit from immediate and sharp vision with the flexibility of a changeable prescription later down the line.

Contact lenses can also involve a lower level of risk and hassle, as they only need changing as little as every 30 days.

Continuous wear lenses include brands such as Purevision or AirOptix Night & Day.
