LASIK at EyeCare Associates
LASIK, or Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis, is a form of outpatient surgery in which a surgeon uses pulses of laser light to reshape the cornea. In many patients, laser vision correction reduces or eliminates nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism, effectively decreasing their dependency on corrective lenses. Many patients achieve 20/40 vision or better.
To be eligible for LASIK you must be 18 years of age or older and not have had a significant change in your glasses or contact lens prescription for the last 12 months. You will undergo a comprehensive eye exam and assessment to determine if LASIK is suited to the condition of your eyes, your overall medical situation, and your lifestyle.
It is our policy to provide LASIK at an affordable price. By owning our laser equipment and employing our own surgical and ophthalmology staff, we are able to keep our costs down, which allows us to pass savings to you.
