LASIK answer: Not all patients are eligible for lasik. There are many situations where lasik is not an appropriate choice, such as patients with visually significant cataracts, keratoconus, extremely high myopia, etc. Please see your own doctor for a consultation to determine whether or not lasik is an appropriate option.
