LASIK Eye Surgery

One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today is LASIK corrective eye surgery. LASIK is a simple procedure that changes the surface of your eye into a lens that compensates for any shortcomings that cause nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism. Generally, the results are excellent with patients receiving perfect or near perfect vision at a very low complication rate.

How do you choose the right doctor for you?
  • Work closely with your current optometrist or ophthalmologist to determine whether you would be a good candidate for LASIK. Your regular eye doctor plays an important role in preparation and follow-up after the procedure.
  • Experience - as low as the complication rate is, it drops even lower for doctors who have performed thousands of procedures over several years.
  • Equipment used - your doctor will use a laser to correct your vision, and not all lasers

    are the same. Newer lasers are better than older systems, and the newest can be used for custom LASIK, an improvement over previous procedures in increasing the sharpness of your vision while reducing the potential side effects of glare.
