Throughout his 15 years in clinical practice, board-certified Dr. King has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures, a track record that makes him one of the most experienced refractive surgeons in North America. After scheduling a consultation, the nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic meet with an optometrist, who evaluates whether patients are suitable candidates for LASIK. Postprocedure, the majority of patients treated for mild to moderate refractive error eliminate the need for glasses, contact lenses, and crystal balls. Typically, three follow-up visits are needed: one day after the procedure, one week later, and a three-month checkup. Consult the FAQs and LASIK technology page to begin ocular investigations.
Peering at freshly written lines on the page. Working to catch a glimpse of a bird on the wing. Myriad sets of eyes see their tasks more clearly because of Dr. Joseph King, who has performed more than 75,000 refractive surgeries in his 15-year career. He and the other LASIK specialists and doctors at King LASIK sharpen patients' vision with conventional and custom procedures, as well as PRK surgeries. Dr. King himself underwent LASIK eye surgery in 2000 to accommodate his active lifestyle. "Just 15 minutes after the procedure, I could read the computer screen at the office,” he recalls. “I experienced several hours of watery, sensitive eyes, but after sleeping for a few hours, I awakened and I could read the digital clock on the radio across the room."
