Anybody from Hawaii here? - October 9th 2017, 06:07 AM

Hey everyone!

Before I start with my problem, I really want to know if there is anyone here from Hawaii? My cousin recently shifted to Hawaii and even though she is older to me, she keeps asking me for advice.

She has been facing difficulty with her eyesight since very long and now that she is 20, she wants to do a lasik operation. She sent me the details of this hospital she is planning to get her lasik eye surgery from. I went through their site and it feels pretty much okay. But since it's the matter of her eye, I really don't want to take a chance. She is a bit careless in nature on selecting stuffs and I'm really worried about this hospital she has picked up on. Just want to confirm whether their services are really good or not.

Could anyone who stays in Hawaii and knows about this clinic let me know whether its good to go with? Would really appreciate your help and advice. You can also help me with some other suggestions too.

Hey there,
I'm not from Hawaii and never went there. I did check the website for legitimacy. It does seem legit. However, the eligibility for candidacy clearly states the person must be 21 or older. You said yout cousin is only 20. Is her birthday coming up?

This is what the website states

Generally a good candidate must
be in good physical health with no eye diseases
or conditions that would affect healing. The Jenkins
team will thoroughly check your vision, the health of
your eyes, and make sure you can safely have LASIK.
Once the exam is complete, Dr. Jenkins reviews the
test results and uses that information to create an
individualized treatment plan.

Other requirements include:

You must be at least 21 years old
You must have a cornea thick enough to safely create the flap.
You must have a stable prescription for at least a year.
