Q I have a thin cornea, am I really a good candidate as my corneas are thin?

Ans.   A good candidate comes from our LASIK tests or the LASIK evaluation. We use the Pentacam Occulyzer which checks 25,000 points on the cornea.

Thin corneas usually do not pose a problem for us as we have a two-fold advantage of a laser which saves 40% cornea compared to most others and using a special kit which saves 90 microns more or performing bladeless EpiLASIK. However, if you can send us the exact pachymetry (corneal thickness) or the topography maps and reports that you may have, it will enable us to know which procedure is more suitable for your eyes.
