LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery is a common vision correction procedure that reshapes the cornea providing lasting relief for common vision problems. After LASIK, most people no longer need to wear glasses. The procedure uses beams of light instead of hand-held surgical instruments which offers more precise care with fewer complications. Our team delivers safe, effective care that you can count on.

LASIK & PRK Vision Correction Surgery

LASIK surgery reshapes the cornea (transparent front layer of the eye), providing lasting relief for common vision problems such as nearsightedness. After LASIK, most people no longer need to wear glasses for nearsightedness. You may still need reading glasses.

During photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), we remove the cornea’s thin outer layer before reshaping it. Your eye grows a new outer layer as you heal. PRK may be right for you if you have thin corneas and cannot have LASIK.

Cutting Edge Technology: Wavelight Refractive Suite

Our team was one of the first in the U.S. to perform LASIK surgery using the Alcon Wavelight® Refractive Suite. This innovative technology helps us deliver the fastest and most accurate bladeless vision correction procedure available. The Wavelight® Refractive Suite features the FS200 femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap, the EX500 Eximer laser to change the curvature of the cornea, and a swiveling bed for maximum patient comfort.
