How LASIK Works

We use a state of the art laser that adjusts to the unique curvature of each individual's corneal shape, improving visual results and reducing nighttime glare. The laser also tracks eye movement and makes adjustments 200 times per second. Each laser pulse is automatically checked three times and adjusted if necessary before it is delivered to the cornea. Each pulse is also non-overlapping, increasing accuracy and safety.

Free Evaluations

We offer free laser vision evaluations. 

How Do I Prepare for an Evaluation?

  • You’ll need to be out of soft contact lenses for two weeks before the evaluation, and out of RGP or hard lenses for three weeks before the evaluation. This is to ensure accurate measurements.
  • Your eyes will be dilated, so please arrange for a driver.
  • We’re careful to do a thorough evaluation, so please set aside two-three hours for this visit.
