Laser Vision Correction

LASIK is a treatment that uses a cool beam of light to gently reshape the surface of the cornea to conform to your prescription. If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, and you are ready to reduce or even eliminate your need for glasses and contacts, then the LASIK procedure could be for you.

LASIK is an outpatient procedure with the treatment taking just minutes. Patients are generally back to work within 2-3 days, but are usually capable of going back to work the very next day.

Ideal Candidates

If you are at least 18 years of age, in good general health and your eyes are clear of degenerative diseases such as glaucoma or cataracts, Laser vision surgery maybe right for you. Laser vision correction can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

To find out if laser vision correction is right for you, talk with your own eye doctor, or you may call our office and schedule an evaluation to confirm if you are a good candidate. We can also explain the procedure in more detail and answer any questions that you may have. We will explain what results you can reasonably expect by measuring your prescription and thoroughly examining your eyes. Even if you are not a candidate now, you may become one in the future.
