Individual LASIK patients stick out over the years. For Dr. Kim, that patient was a gentleman who came in after his house had caught on fire. Instead of being able to find his kids and get out of the house quickly, he had to waste precious time finding his glasses. Everyone got out of the house safely, but it was that moment the man decided he needed to have refractive surgery.

Your eye is a camera, and refractive surgery is like fixing the lens, but if there’s something wrong with the mechanics of your eyes, vision correction is typically not recommended. We perform a number of tests on all of our LASIK patients to ensure that you’re a good candidate for laser eye surgery.

LASIK may not be recommended if:

Kellen is a mechanical engineer who was tired of wearing contacts every day. The inconvenience of eye exams, changing prescriptions and ordering new contacts was getting old after ten years. Our LASIK surgeon, Dr. Reed, corrected Kellen’s vision, and it forever changed his life. Hear more about Kellen’s LASIK surgery experience in the video above.

We often perform LASIK on both eyes at the same time because our eye surgeons believe it’s not only safe, but also convenient for the patient and the recovery process. If you’re nervous about your LASIK surgery, we can correct your vision one eye at a time. Dr. Reed explains more about your LASIK candidacy and procedure in the video above.

A patient's safety is the eye doctor's first priority in laser vision correction. Not only must the health of the eyes and the health of the patient be considered while critical standards of eligibility must be met. Eye testing with non-routine scans and devices help to inform patients of their eligibility for laser eye surgery, ensuring the safest possible choice for each patient.
