LASIK Eye Surgery

Blurred vision has the potential to disrupt nearly every area of your life, requiring corrective lenses to perform even the simplest tasks.

LASIK eye surgery gives you clear vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses.

Let's bring that into focus...

LASIK Eye Surgery Improves Your Vision Immediately

But the Thought of Having a Laser Pointed at My Eye Makes Me Anxious...

LASIK icon Laser eye procedures have come a long way since their introduction in the 1960s. Current techniques give ophthalmologists the ability to perform surgeries with such great precision that the complication rate is less than one percent of all surgeries.

Your doctor will administer numbing eye drops and a sedative to ensure that you do not feel any pain or anxiety during your LASIK surgery. Most patients describe only slight discomfort for a very brief period during the procedure.

Let's take a more detailed look at the procedure...

3 Primary Techniques for LASIK Surgery

Wavefront-Optimized® LASIK

This technique uses detailed measurements of the curvature of the cornea to guide surgery, which can preserve the natural shape of your eyes.

Wavefront-Guided LASIK

This method is similar to the Wavefront-Optimized technique, but instead measures the way that light travels through your eye to create customized surgical guidelines.


This technique uses detailed topography mapping of the eyes to create some of the most precise surgical treatments available.

These topographic eye mapping techniques offer greater precision and customization, leading to superior patient results.

Clear vision is just a step away...What are you waiting for?

Bring the World into Focus

Corrective eyewear can help improve your vision, but these are just temporary solutions at best, and come with their own limitations and inconveniences. Only refractive surgical procedures offer a more permanent enhancement to your visual acuity. Some patients may be better-suited for an alternative procedure, such as conductive keratoplasty or refractive lens exchange, but only a professional can help make the best recommendation.

Seeing in high definition can literally change everything about the way you view the world. Speak with a doctor to take your first step towards changing your life.
