Location Information

If you’re looking for LASIK in San Diego, 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 San Diego 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 San Diego, 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.

San Diego Vision Correction Procedures

Today’s life-changing procedures make it possible to improve your vision to 20/20—or better.

  • This 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.

  • Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL), is a refractable implant to correct common vision issues like nearsightedness and astigmatism.

    ICLs are made for people who want to experience life without the hassle of glasses or contacts.

  • 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.

  • Monovision LASIK is a popular solution to maintain reading vision. This procedure involves leaving one eye slightly nearsighted while correcting your other eye for distance vision.

    Monovision LASIK helps treat presbyopia.

  • This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to improve the corneal shape in patients with keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea develops a cone-like bulge.

    Intacs® is also known as surgical implantation of intracorneal ring segments.

  • Also known as surfer's eye, pterygium is a growth on the cornea.

    Pterygium eye surgery is performed under topical anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

  • 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.

  • Cataract eye surgery is a very common and medically necessary procedure to remove and replace the eye's natural lens when vision has been clouded by a cataract.

    During this procedure, your cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear lens safely and comfortably.

  • Keratoconus is a progressive disease of the cornea. With collagen cross-linking (CXL), you can halt the progression of keratoconus by strengthening your cornea.

    This groundbreaking procedure has helped tens of thousands of people around the world.

  • Dry eye is an irritating, painful, and common condition in which the eye fails to properly produce quality tears. When left untreated, it may lead to ulcers and scars on the cornea.

    Depending on the severity of your condition, we offer a number of treatment options for dry eye.

  • 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.
