LASIK / Laser Vision Correction

LASIK

How different would your life be without glasses or contact lenses?  Imagine the freedom of playing sports, watching television, driving your car, and spending time with your family without any visual restrictions. LASIK has made this dream a reality for millions of people! LASIK is a safe and effective procedure to re-sculpt the cornea to fix problems such as near-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. These “refractive errors” cause blurry vision.

Why LASIK?

Do your glasses or contact lenses get in the way of your athletic lifestyle?

Are you tired of wearing contact lenses?

Do you want people to see your eyes and your face without glasses?
