Q What percentage of patients do you turn away?

Ans. We decline patients for LASIK if they are found unsuitable for the procedure due to:

1. High refraction beyond limits of laser- alternatives like ICL are explored

2. Severe dry eye which would need treatment first

3. Keratoconus or any abnormality found during the eye check which deems them unfit. You will appreciate that there cannot be a fixed percentage for this.

However, important is that if LASIK is not found suitable, we do explore other procedures which may benefit more.
