Tucson Vision Correction Procedures
Today's life-changing procedures make it possible to improve your vision to 20/20—or better.
LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK—short for Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis— is the most common type of laser eye surgery, during which a surgeon will reshape your cornea with a laser.
LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Cataract eye surgery is a very common and medically necessary procedure to remove and replace the eye’s natural lens when the vision has been clouded by a cataract. We offer laser-assisted cataract surgery and lifestyle lenses as options for our patients.
Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of refractive laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
This surgery removes the outer corneal layer so it is a good option for people with thin corneas who may not be candidates for LASIK.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
Refractive lens exchange (RLE), is when a clear lens is implanted to replace your eye’s natural lens to correct your vision.
This procedure is often used for pre-cataract patients, as a preventative vision correction solution. RLE can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Small Incision Lenticle Extraction (SMILE)
Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a type of laser eye surgery that can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. It cannot correct farsightedness.
SMILE eye surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a corneal flap.
Lifestyle lenses are a premium lens option that offers a more functional range of vision, and are designed to reduce the need for distance and reading glasses.
We offer the latest and most advanced lifestyle lens on the market.
Pterygium eye surgery is performed under topical anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Laser blepharoplasty eye surgery, also known as laser eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate eyelid tissues (skin, muscle, or fat). Blepharoplasty is performed for both cosmetic and vision correction purposes.
Glaucoma eye surgery involves using a microscopic stent to drain fluid that could harm the optic nerve.
This procedure is minimally invasive.

If you’re looking for LASIK in Tucson, you can rest assured that you have access to some of the nation’s top laser eye surgeons.
LASIK is a life-changing procedure with incredibly high patient satisfaction rates (over 95 percent), allowing Tucson residents clear vision for years to come. Most patients don’t need corrective lenses, such as glasses or contacts, following LASIK.
During the procedure, your surgeon will use a laser to reshape your cornea, allowing light to refract correctly so your vision is clear. LASIK can correct various refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Serious complications from LASIK are exceedingly rare, allowing patients to enjoy clear vision without issues.
If you need LASIK in Tucson, look for a surgeon who has performed thousands of surgeries and has access to the latest LASIK technology. You’ll start with an assessment to gauge whether you are a good candidate for LASIK.
Laser Surgery Financing Options in Tucson
Though LASIK and other corrective vision procedures can be an investment, most patients find it results in a cost-savings over time as they no longer have to regularly purchase glasses, contacts, or other corrective lenses. In addition, there are a variety of financing options that can make the upfront cost of laser eye surgery more affordable.
NVISION Eye Centers partners with CareCredit. This company offers patients low-interest rates and flexible repayment terms, so patients can pay off the cost of their laser eye surgery over time in manageable monthly payments.
