What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a painless, surgical procedure that uses a laser to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.

Is LASIK Right For Me?

If you answer "Yes" to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for LASIK.

  • Are you nearsighted, farsighted, or do you have an astigmatism?
  • Do you want to lessen your dependence on reading glasses or contact lenses?
  • Are you having difficulty reading or seeing well at night?

Frequently Asked Questions

DO I HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN AGE TO HAVE LASIK SURGERY?

Ideal LASIK candidates fall between the ages of 21 to 38. However, there are a variety of factors considered prior to the recommendation for LASIK surgery.

If you’re experiencing symptoms similar to that which is described above, please come in for a visit.

CAN I HAVE LASIK SURGERY PERFORMED IF I RECENTLY CHANGED MY GLASSES PRESCRIPTION?

Typically, candidates for any refractive procedures must show little to no change in refraction (prescription) for at least 1 year. However, patients are still encouraged to come in for a visit so that our doctors can gain a better understanding of your vision capabilities.

IS SURGERY PAINFUL?

Numbing drops are administered before surgery, so most of our patients report that this procedure is pain-free. However, mild discomfort is also possible with all corrective procedures.

HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?

Research has shown that LASIK is a permanent procedure. However, there are some instances in which patients need to have an enhancement—this is where the surgeon has to repeat the procedure to obtain satisfactory results.
