If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than 950,000 eye surgeries at 46 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI’s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
Though eyes are widely known as the windows to the soul, Dr. Stacey Rockett sees them as the focal point of her life.

Dr. Rockett also screens for and treats common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, and alleviates pain for clients who’ve confused the white bottle of eye drops for the red bottle of sriracha.
