LASIK eye surgery is the best known and most commonly performed laser refractive procedure to correct vision problems. LASIK is a procedure intended to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.
Not a Candidate for LASIK?
You may be a candidate for PRK or other refractive procedures.
The acronym for photorefractive keratectomy which is a procedure involving the removal of the surface layer of the cornea (epithelium) by gentle scraping and use of a computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape the stroma. Consult with your provider for more information.
Common vision problems
Prior to meeting the doctor, please remember to avoid wearing soft contact lenses for a minimum of 3 days. During this thorough examination, we will conduct multiple scans and perform eye dilation. Your appointment will last around 1 hour, during which our dedicated doctor will carefully analyze your data and discuss your personalized plan.
If you are a candidate for LASIK, you’ll meet our surgical coordinator. They will guide you through procedure dates, costs, financing options, and provide pre and post-LASIK instructions to ensure a smooth process.
Simply bring your ID, consent forms, and your preferred payment method – your path to clear vision is just a step away. Your procedure is typically less than 10 minutes per eye. You will be in the comfort of your home on the same day as your procedure.
