Two Simple Steps to LASIK:

  1. Make sure you're a good candidate with the most comprehensive, free exam in the region.
  2. Have LASIK Friday and be back to work Monday.

With your LASIK procedure on Friday afternoon, you can take as little as half a day off work. Enjoy your first weekend of freedom and show off your new vision at work on Monday.

Contacts vs LASIK?

Though contacts are a viable solution for vision correction, there are a few reasons why you should consider having LASIK over wearing contacts.

  • Wind, dust, sports & allergies = big problem for contacts; not a problem with LASIK.
  • Recent studies show LASIK is up to 5 times safer than contacts. When you consider the risks of scratched corneas, eye fungus or other diseases from contacts, it makes sense that LASIK proves to be much safer than contacts.
  • If you're wearing contacts, you’re already paying for LASIK. Add up the costs over a twelve to fifteen year period and you’ve probably paid for LASIK. Low interest financing solves most budget concerns.

3 Things to Avoid When Choosing a Surgeon

Here are 3 errors to avoid when choosing your surgeon for laser vision correction:

  1. Don't allow yourself to be rushed during the consultation or at any point during the exam process. Demand a thorough exam and full disclosure of your suitability for the procedure.
  2. Don't choose a LASIK company, choose a LASIK surgeon with an excellent personal track record – it's the personal skill and commitment of your surgeon that counts.
  3. Don't choose exclusively by price. Startlingly low prices such as $299, $499 or $699 per eye are deliberately misleading with fewer than 3% of applicants qualifying for the type of procedure used. High-quality LASIK IS affordable without compromising on outcome and safety.
