The LASIK procedure
LASIK is an acronym and actually stands for Laser in-situ keratomileusis, which is the most commonly performed type of laser eye surgery. This eye surgery procedure is generally safe, effective, and has very few side effects. LASIK is a great option for many individuals considering laser vision correction for a variety of very personal and professional reasons. LASIK may not promise perfect vision, however; it is a highly successful procedure that can at the very least reduce a person’s dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The lifestyle benefits can be tremendous for active and social people. These benefits can bring great value and ease in life. If you are an active person please feel free to consult our LASIK coordinators if you have questions about life after LASIK. They will be happy to answer any questions that may affect your lifestyle or any questions about the LASIK eye surgery procedure itself.
LASIK is appropriate for
- People who are over the age of 21 and are tired of wearing glasses and contact lenses all the time.
- People that have no existing eye diseases
- People that have relatively stable prescriptions for the last year.

Q: Are laser vision correction procedures covered by insurance?
A: Few insurance policies cover Laser Vision Correction, however, we would be happy to check yours when you come in for a consult. Remember patient financing plans are also available. We use Care Credit with 0% Financing Options.
Q: Is there any pain involved with LASIK?
A: Because we make every effort to make sure the eye is numb, patients tell us they feel only slight discomfort, not pain during the procedure. After the procedure, most people report a slightly irritated eye for a few hours, similar to an eyelash getting in your eye. But pain is subjective, and when you learn more about the procedure you’ll form your own opinion of what to expect.
Q: Has anyone ever gone blind form a Laser Vision Correction Procedure?
A: To this date there have been zero reported cases of total loss of vision.
