We Are Your Partners in Great Eye Health

Laser refractive eye surgery, most commonly referred to by its most popular version, LASIK, is a safe way to correct most types of refractive errors. By correcting the refractive error on the cornea, you will be able to enjoy clear vision without the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses.

We provide comprehensive pre and post-operative care, ensuring an improvement to your vision and healthy eyes thereafter.

Is Laser Eye Surgery Right For You?

Before any conversations about surgery or results, we must first assess your eyes to determine if you are a surgical candidate. During this examination we will discuss the surgery and what to expect.

If you are considering laser eye surgery, please request an appointment to meet with an Optometrist to discuss the procedure and assess your eyes.

Laser Surgery is a Great Choice!

For millions of Americans, laser eye surgery has allowed them to return to crisp, clear vision that doesn’t require a corrective lens. If you’re an athlete, pilot, or someone who simply doesn’t want to wear glasses anymore, laser eye surgery is a great option!

Most prescriptions for myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism can be corrected via laser refractive surgery.

In many cases, laser eye surgery provides lifelong vision correction. In the cases where it does not, patients can expect many years of corrective lens-free life from their laser refractive surgery.

This method of vision correction is well studied and practiced, as well it is performed millions of times per year in America.

About Laser Eye Surgery

There are several different types of laser refractive surgery performed today. The most widely performed is LASIK, though LASEK and PRK are viable options for many.

  • LASIK – laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis – Using a laser or microkeratome, a small flap is made in your corneal tissue. Your corneal cells are then treated by the laser, correcting their refractive errors.
  • LASEK – laser assisted subepithelial keratectomy – In this procedure, the surgeon removes the skin flap entirely, preserving it and replacing it back over the area when the procedure is complete. Like LASIK, a powerful laser is used to correct the refractive errors.
  • PRK – photorefractive keratectomy – In this procedure, the skin flap is again removed, although it is not replaced. The body will regrow a new epithelial lining naturally.

On the whole, laser refractive surgery is quite safe. LASIK has the shortest recovery time (on average), but all versions offer fast recovery times and a great standard of success.

However, like all medical procedures, surgery comes with risk of potential side effects. These include:

  • Blurry or hazy vision
  • Eye discomfort, a feeling of burning or itching
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Infection

In most cases, side effects are temporary and resolve during or after the recovery process. Recovery can take as long as six months, though for most people it takes less than five.
