UCLA Laser Refractive Center has strict guidelines for determining LASIK candidacy. Not every person is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. We realize that every eye is very unique. No two corneal maps are the same. Each is just as distinctive as DNA or a fingerprint. Visit our LASIK Candidacy page for more information about who may be and may not be a good candidate for laser vision correction. After a preliminary screening visit, a comprehensive eye examination is necessary to make the final candidacy determination. This extensive diagnostic evaluation is the first step in creating a positive outcome to achieve your personal best vision.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call us.
