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 LASIK Evaluations

We offer free laser vision evaluations. Below are a few things to know in order to prepare for your consultation.

  • 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.
  • Arrange for a driver since your eyes will be dilated
  • Set aside two-three hours for this visit for a thorough evaluation 
  • To have been in a stable prescription for at least 2 years
  • Be 18 years or older

How Much Does LASIK Cost?

At your appointment, we will discuss LASIK pricing and financing options. We accept payment in the form of debit, credit, cash, check, flex spending account or care credit. Please keep in mind that LASIK surgery is considered an elective surgery so insurance will not cover it.

  • FLEX Spending contribution payments
  • A 'Global Fee' covering vision correction surgery plus 12 months of follow-up visits with us or your current eye doctor

Is the LASIK Procedure Safe?

Lasik technology has been approved by the FDA and has been used in millions of vision correction procedures worldwide. In fact, NASA astronauts and U.S. aviators are able to have laser vision correction surgery today because of studies that validate the safety and effectiveness of these technologies.
