- $100 for $1,500 toward Lasik eye surgery for both eyes
The blade-free intraLASIK treatments (whose price typically ranges from $4,800 to $5,200) can correct such visual deficiencies as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery. The procedure begins with the creation of a small flap on the corneal surface, then a laser reshapes the curvature of the cornea under the flap according to calibrations customized for each patient. Next, the flap is replaced and self-seals to the cornea without the need for stitches or sutures. Patients are typically able to see after one day, and many procedures result in 20/20 vision or better.

Kleiman Evangelista Eye Center
The four eye surgeons at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Center—Dr. David Kleiman, Dr. Anthony Evangelista, Dr. Aaron Amacher, and Dr. Farshid Ighani—specialize in surgeries that render blades unnecessary, replacing them with laser technology. Their Blade-Free HD IntraLASIK surgery, for example, corrects vision problems with beams from the IntraLase iFS and VISX Star S4 lasers; the process reshapes corneal tissue more effectively than glasses whose lenses have been replaced with Jell-O molds.
