Am I A Suitable Candidate?

UltraLASIK

Probably YES, if you:

•              Are over 18 years old and have had a stable prescription for 1 year

•              Have healthy eyes with no diseases (e.g. cataract)

•              Are within the range of correction for:

Shortsightedness
UltraLASIK has been shown to be effective for a wide range of myopia (up to –15 diopters in selected cases). The level of treatment is highly dependent on your corneal thickness and pupil size in dim light.

Farsighted
UltraLASIK has also been shown to be effective for farsightedness correcting up to +5 diopters. Treatment beyond this has been performed, but though effective it’s not as predictable.

Astigmatism
Levels of astigmatism up to 6 diopters can be treated safely and effectively. At Sharif Eye Center we have expertise in treating higher levels than this and have developed novel methods.

Before recommending UltraLASIK , a consultant surgeon will need to perform a thorough ophthalmic examination, including a number of test​s, to ensure that your eyes are healthy and that you are a candidate for treatment.

KERATOCONUS

Probably YES, if you:

  • Suffer from severe Astigmatism and cannot qualify for a laser surgery due to a thin cornea
  • Have Myopia that cannot be corrected with glasses

 

CATARACT SURGERY AND CRYSTAL LENSES

Probably YES, if you:

  • Are above 50 years of age
  • Experience a clouding sensation in your eye
  • Experience blurred vision

 

IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSES

Probably YES, if you:

  • Are above 18 years of age
  • Suffer from severe Shortsight (up to -25.00)
  • Suffer from severe Farsight (up to +12.00)
  • Suffer from eye conditions that cannot be fixed with LASIK surgery

 

ACUFOCUS

Probably YES, if you:

  • Are above 40 years of age
  • Are presbyope with shortsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism

You can undergo an AcuFocus treatment regardless of whether you have undergone LASIK or Cataract surgery before.
