According to my stats, am I a good candidate?

Postby fabiovc27 » Mon Aug 06, 2007 10:58 pm

pupils 8mm
cornea 480 Right eye and 474 Left eye
my contact lens prescriptions
Right = -6.00
Left = -5.00

these are the measurements i received on a lasik consultation in march.
i'm still unsure of which doctor to pick. But from what i have as measurements am I a good candidate for Lasik?
Seems like i should i go for intralase?
and am I a good candidate for Custom Vue Lasik?

Thank you.
I'm glad I found this forum.

We are glad you found us too.

You need to read about Lasik pupil size to understand the importance of your 8.0mm pupil. The largest fully wavefront-guided treatment area with the Visx S4 (CustomVue) is 6.5mm. A larger area can be treated, but it will not be wavefront-guided custom Lasik.
