Should you consider LASIK?

Book Appointment

LASIK eye surgery has been FDA-approved for over 20 years and is one of the best surgeries that I recommend at our office.  Imagine having to wear glasses and contact lenses for most of your life and within 10 – 15 minutes, being able to see without them! It is truly a life changing surgery.   Keep in mind that when you turn 40 years of age, you will still need to wear eyeglass lenses to see things up close. Nevertheless, LASIK is a great surgery if you are a great candidate for the procedure.

LASIK can support your active lifestyle

Wearing glasses and contact lenses can hinder your active lifestyle with constant adjustments to your vision. Contact lenses can dry out and irritate your eyes. Whether you are taking a class, going to the gym, or playing sports, seeing clearly and comfortable leads to a better overall experience.  You won’t have to worry about carrying solution or glasses after having LASIK.

LASIK surgery is safe

Using the latest technology and equipment, LASIK is a very safe procedure.  To determine if you are a candidate for the procedure, a pre-operative exam is performed at our office. The testing including measuring your prescription, mapping the front surface of your eye, measuring the thickness of the front surface of the eye, evaluating for dry eyes, and assessing your overall health.  

Recovery time is at a minimum

Most of us have busy work schedules and social lives which require that minimal time be taken off.  Fortunately, with LASIK, there is minimal amount of time needed to be taken off. Most people can go back to work within two days of the procedure.  

Our office is proud of the exceptional record in successfully managing LASIK patients.  With meticulous attention to detail in managing your pre-and post-operative services, we strive to assure the finest LASIK outcome.  Our practice pledges to give you personalized and professional services to assure your personal satisfaction with our LASIK program. To determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK, please contact our office at 925-743-1222 for an initial consultation.
