Eye Doctor Serving Mobile, Alabama and the nearby Gulf Coast Area

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition impacting millions of people across the country. About 10 years ago, most people with dry eye syndrome weren't considered good LASIK candidates due to the increased risk of complications. But advances in LASIK technology over the past decade have changed this prognosis for patients with dry eyes.

Today, you are still considered to be a good LASIK candidate even if you have dry eyes. In the following video, Dr. Walton discusses the steps that need to be taken prior to your LASIK procedure to treat your dry eyes. By following these pre-treatment measures, you can still achieve exceptional LASIK results.
