LASIK—short for Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis—is the most commonly performed laser eye procedure in the world. It’s one of the safest and most effective ways to correct vision, and NVISION surgeons are leaders in the LASIK field. NVISION Eye Centers offer Custom LASIK, a procedure more customized to your individual eyes.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.
Astigmatism causes your vision to be blurred at both near and far distances. It occurs when your cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball.
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, affects nearly one in four people. Those with hyperopia can see distant objects very well but have difficulty focusing on objects that are close.
During the consultation, we will ask you about your eye health history and medications, and perform some tests. You will then be examined by the doctor who will discuss your treatment options. This visit usually takes about an hour and your personal Patient Counselor will help you throughout the process.
Your Counselor can review payment options and schedule you for surgery and related appointments, such as post-operative exams. You will have a set of instructions to follow to prepare for your surgery day that includes steps like taking prescribed eye drops and setting up a ride for your procedure day.
Plan to be at the center for two to three hours the day of your procedure. This allows for pre-procedure preparations including taking some medication in advance of your procedure. Custom LASIK is a painless procedure that takes about 20 minutes total. The day of your procedure should be a day of rest.
Your Patient Counselor will give you detailed post-operative instructions and an eye drop regimen for your recovery. Most of our patients are able to go back to work the next day and drive to and from their one-day post-op visit. You will be ready to resume other activities, like wearing eye makeup, according to the timetable provided.
