- $2,500 for LASIK surgery for both eyes (up to $4,200 value)
During the LASIK treatment, the ophthalmologist attempts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The doctor uses a WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser to reshape the corneal tissue underneath without damaging the surrounding tissues. The eyes heal naturally over the course of the next few days. Most people will start to see clearly the next day. Although the treatment cannot guarantee perfect vision, it can help a patient live a more active lifestyle without relying as extensively on glasses or corrective lenses. A preliminary consultation will determine whether a patient is a viable candidate for the surgical procedure.

Within the broad realm of ophthalmology, Dr. David Nelson specializes in dramatically improving his patients’ vision with cataract, LASIK, PRK, and lens-implant surgeries. Dr. Nelson, who works alongside Dr. Nima Mazhari at Carolina Eye Cataract & Laser, divides his time between treating patients at the practice he founded and sharing his expertise. His work has been published in ophthalmology journals and he has lectured at national conferences.
Recognized as a top ophthalmologist by the International Assocation of Healthcare Professionals, Dr. Nelson aims to correct conditions such as astigmatic corneas or myopic vision with anything from laser eye surgeries to corrective-lens prescriptions. He identifies these problems using a Pentacam diagnostic tool, which gives a three-dimensional view of an eye from 25 angles.
