It is likely you would be a good candidate for refractive surgery if most of the following statements are true for you:
At times my dependence on corrective lenses (glasses or contact lenses) makes me feel handicapped.
- I want freedom to pursue activities without wearing corrective lenses or contacts.
- I have not been able to successfully wear contact lenses.
- I think I would look better without glasses.
- I am worried about how I would function in an emergency if I were to lose my glasses or contact lenses.
- I envy people who do not have to wear glasses or contacts.
- My career opportunities might be greater if I had better natural vision.
- If I still needed to wear corrective lenses part of the time, but my natural vision was improved, I would be happier than I am at the present time.
It is likely you would not be a good candidate for refractive surgery if most of the following statements are true for you:
- I am comfortable with my glasses. I like wearing them, and I feel they look good on me.

- I prefer to have my corrective lenses updated frequently so that I have excellent vision.
- Little visual irregularities bother or would bother me.
- I pay close attention to fine details in my work and hobbies. Any loss of fine detailed vision would be very upsetting to me.
- If I have refractive surgery and still needed corrective lenses on occasion, I would be unhappy that I had the surgery.
- If I had refractive surgery and my vision was not “perfect”, I would be extremely disappointed and consider the surgery a failure.
- I would not want to have refractive surgery if my health insurance would not cover the cost.
