Clearer Vision without Corrective Lenses
LASIK Surgery – Laser Vision Correction
Restore your vision with this quick and effective laser vision correction surgery. If you suffer from nearsightedness or farsightedness, or have an astigmatism, can find relief from corrective lenses through LASIK. This procedure results in fewer side effects and a faster recovery than other alternatives. Some patients even experience immediate improvement to sight.
High Rate of Client Satisfaction
Fast Recovery & Fewer Side Effects
Don’t have time to sit around waiting to recover? With LASIK, you can expect to feel back to normal a day after your procedure. Beside quickly returning to you normal day-to-day (this time with clear vision) you won’t need to worry about facing side effects. Fewer than one percent of LASIK patients experience complications from their procedure.
No Dependence on Contacts or Glasses
Do More Without Corrective Lenses
With LASIK surgery you gain freedom from contacts and glasses. Instead of worrying about taking contacts out before bed or searching endlessly for your lost glasses, you can go about your daily life without hassle. If you have had a stable prescription for two to three years you will have a heightened chance of not needing glasses again in the future. And if you do a fluctuation in vision, touch-up procedures can be performed.
Your Ticket to Better Vision
Results Almost Immediately
Some patients report 20/20 vision the day following their procedure. For others, the healing process will take a little longer as the eye adjusts and the cornea heals. Keep in mind that your eye will stabilize over three to six months. If you don’t notice immediate results, don’t fear, your eye may just be adjusting.
Clean & Quick Procedure
No Bandages or Stitches Required
With LASIKs you don’t need to worry about stitches in your eye or changing a bandage. However, you may be asked to use an eye patch while you sleep. This is to ensure that your cornea is protected as it heals. It’s vital that you don’t rub or scratch your eyes during the healing process.

Have questions? We’ve got answers.
Here are some common questions about our LASIK procedure.
Isn’t all laser vision correction the same?
Will I have 20/20 vision following laser vision correction?
Is laser vision correction safe?
After laser vision correction, you may experience some visual side effects. These are usually mild and most often diminish over a few days to a few weeks. But there is a slight chance that some of these side effects won’t go away completely, such as feelings of dryness, glare, and halos. If after a thorough examination we decide you are a good candidate for laser vision correction, you will be given additional information about the procedure that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed. Be sure you have all your questions answered to your satisfaction.
Has anyone ever gone blind because of LASIK?
What about nighttime side-effects?
Another possible cause of nighttime side-effects is pupil size. At night, the pupil expands to let in more light. Light coming through the peripheral cornea may be out of focus if the pupil opens beyond the laser treatment area. This is why some patients are not good candidates for LASIK if they have very large pupils. However, our advanced laser technology has expanded treatment zones and patients that were at one time not candidates for LASIK because they had large pupils, can now be treated. PRK and LASEK may also be better procedures for patients with wide pupils.
Does LASIK cause dry eye?
If you have pre-existing dry eye, you may not be a good candidate for LASIK. However, you may be a candidate for PRK or LASEK. If you have dry eye, you should discuss it with your doctor at your pre-op examination. Tests can often diagnose dry eye but it is still somewhat difficult to predict who will experience significant dry eye following LASIK. A thorough evaluation of your current medications, medical history, and work environment should all be taken into account.

How old do I have to be for laser vision correction?

How much should I pay for laser vision correction?
It’s only natural to want to get the best price, but remember, quality and service are extremely important when it comes to medical care. After all, laser vision correction is a procedure you’ll have only once in your lifetime and your vision is one of your most important assets. The best way to find out exactly what your price will be is to come in for an exam. After a comprehensive evaluation to determine what procedures you’re a candidate for and what degree of correction you need, we’ll be able to give you a specific price.
Will my insurance cover my procedure?
