$199 for $2,000 Toward Bilateral LASIK Laser Eye Surgery
The LASIK treatment for both eyes ($5,200) can help address such visual deficiencies as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with the creation of a small flap on the corneal surface. A laser then reshapes the curvature of the cornea under the flap according to calibrations customized for each patient. Next, the flap is replaced and allowed to fuse to the rest of the cornea, which doesn't require any stitches or sutures. Eyes typically heal well enough for patients to see after one day, and many procedures result in 20/20 or better vision. More information on the procedure, its side effects, and the practice is available in a thorough FAQ.
