What is a LASIK Self-Evaluation?

LASIK SurgeryA LASIK Self-Evaluation is an interactive online tool to help you determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK vision correction surgery. While this is not a substitute for a full LASIK Consultation from an experienced ophthalmologist, it is a great first step in the LASIK research process.

The Self-Evaluation asks questions about what your vision is like right now, such as:

  • I can’t see things up close
  • I can’t see things far away
  • It’s difficult for me to drive
  • I’ve been diagnosed with astigmatism
  • I wear glasses / contacts / reading glasses

The Self-Evaluation also asks questions regarding your current medical health and your eye health. This information is kept strictly confidential.

When all of the details are submitted, the Evaluation tallies the information and provides an immediate, personalized result as to whether or not LASIK might produce the results you desire. You can use this information to further research your options or as back-up information to share during your full LASIK Consultation with a surgeon. The only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for LASIK is by having a complete eye exam to determine your corneal thickness and overall eye health.

The doctors at Tidewater Eye Centers in Virginia Beach offer a free LASIK Self-Evaluation on their website at tidewatereye.com. If you are considering LASIK, we encourage you to take the quick assessment to see what might be best for your unique situation.
