What is LASIK Laser Eye Surgery?
LASIK is a highly trusted type of laser eye surgery used to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. This painless procedure adjusts the shape of the cornea — the clear covering of the front of the eye — so it can focus light better and allow you to see more clearly.
At Eye Consultants, this is done using our industry-leading WaveLight ®️ Refractive Suite, which includes the TOPOLYZER ®️ Vario, FS200 Femtosecond Laser, and EX500 Excimer Laser. Only the WaveLight ®️ Refractive Suite features topography-guided Contoura®️ Vision. What this means for you is that you get advanced eye mapping and ultraprecise, highly customizable surgery for the safest and most personalized vision correction available!
Benefits of LASIK
The perks of LASIK surgery are many: worry-free clear vision, freedom from glasses and contacts, and a better quality of life are just a few of the life-changing benefits of this popular vision correction procedure.
But did you know that getting LASIK can almost always save you money in the long run? For many patients, laser eye surgery pays for itself by cutting out the regular expenses of glasses, contact lenses, and eyewear products — smaller expenses that add up quickly, and can ultimately cost far more than the investment in LASIK now.

LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK recovery time varies by patient. In our experience we see the vast majority of patients need only a day or two to resume normal activities. You’ll see one of our doctors 24 to 48 hours after surgery to check on your healing and vision. Other follow up visits will be scheduled to ensure that your recovery is smooth, and your results are excellent.
