What Is LASIK eye surgery?

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a transformative, minimally invasive procedure designed to reshape the cornea — the clear front part of your eye — to correct common vision problems like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. With this procedure, you’ll no longer have to depend on glasses or contacts for clear vision.

At NVISION, we offer top-tier LASIK eye surgery characterized by precision, safety, and convenience. Within a mere 10 minutes, you can step out of our advanced surgical suites, leave behind the hassle of corrective eyewear, and step into a world seen with newfound clarity. Experience the liberating power of 20/20 vision, or even better, and uncover the potential for a life less encumbered by the limitations of visual impairment.

How Much Is LASIK eye surgery?

Understanding the cost of LASIK eye surgery is an important part of making your decision. The price can fluctuate based on several factors, including the complexity of the individual’s case, the level of technology used, and the expertise of the surgeon performing the procedure.

NVISION’s pricing is competitive, falling well within the usual local ranges, while providing unique advantages. These include cutting-edge technology, top-tier surgeons, and our exceptional ‘Vision for Life’ free enhancements plan.

It’s essential to consider the long-term financial benefits of LASIK as well. Many people find that the procedure saves them tens of thousands of dollars over their lifetime by eliminating the recurring costs of glasses or contacts.

Is LASIK eye surgery Safe? What Makes It So Safe?

LASIK stands as one of the safest and most studied procedures in all of medicine, backed by decades of application and a multitude of clinical trials. It’s a testament to this safety that LASIK surgeons themselves are five times more likely to have undergone the procedure than the general population, with 98% of them even trusting the procedure for their own family members.

In fact, LASIK’s safety record surpasses that of long-term contact lens wear. Over the years, contact lens use can increase the likelihood of developing dry eyes, and every insertion presents a new chance for potential infection.

How Effective is LASIK eye surgery?

LASIK eye surgery stands as a testament to the pinnacle of vision correction technology. With our focus on precision and quality care, we’ve achieved an impressive success rate at NVISION.

In fact, 99% of our patients have achieved 20/20 vision or better following the procedure. This high success rate underscores the effectiveness of LASIK as a fast, reliable, and transformative solution to common vision problems.

How long does LASIK eye surgery last?

The effectiveness of LASIK eye surgery in terms of vision correction is typically long-lasting. Many people experience a significant improvement in their vision immediately after the procedure, and the benefits can be permanent. However, it’s important to note that individual responses to LASIK can vary.

While LASIK can provide lasting results, factors such as age-related changes in vision (presbyopia), the progression of certain eye conditions, and other health factors can affect vision over time. Additionally, some individuals may experience changes in their vision that require LASIK enhancements or adjustments after the initial LASIK procedure.

Regular eye check-ups are essential to monitor the stability of your vision and address any changes that may occur. It’s also crucial to follow post-operative care instructions provided by your eye care professional to optimize the healing process and ensure the best possible outcomes.

Regular follow-up appointments are part of this LASIK post-operative care process, allowing the team to track your healing progress and vision improvement.

Am I a Candidate for LASIK?

Determining candidacy for LASIK eye surgery is a crucial initial step. Generally, ideal candidates are at least 18 years old, have had a stable prescription for at least one year, and are in good general health without serious eye conditions. However, this doesn’t paint the full picture — individual vision profiles and lifestyle needs play a significant role in determining candidacy.

Importantly, at NVISION, we leverage advanced technology and innovative techniques that may qualify individuals who have been previously deemed unsuitable for LASIK at other centers. This is why a comprehensive consultation with us is crucial. It’s our goal to explore all possibilities to help you achieve better vision.

Conditions LASIK Can Treat


Astigmatism occurs when the cornea has an irregular shape, causing blurred or distorted vision. LASIK effectively treats astigmatism by reshaping the cornea to correct the uneven curvature. The result is clearer, sharper vision that can eliminate or reduce the need for corrective eyewear.

People who are farsighted have difficulty focusing on nearby objects, while distant objects are typically clear. This is often due to the eye being too short or the cornea too flat. With LASIK, surgeons can adjust the shape of the cornea, increasing its curvature to enhance the eye’s ability to focus on nearby objects.


Nearsightedness (myopia) results in clear vision for close objects but blurry vision for distant objects, typically caused by an overly long eye or overly curved cornea. LASIK corrects myopia by flattening the cornea, allowing light entering the eye to focus correctly on the retina to improve distant vision.

Insurance & Financing

Paying with Insurance

LASIK eye surgery is typically considered an elective procedure and not medically necessary, which means it is typically not covered by insurance. However, some providers may offer discounts or special rates for LASIK, depending on the specifics of your plan.
