Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) was the precursor to LASIK and is still an excellent laser eye surgery option for many patients. One of our PRK patients, Rebecca, decided to have laser vision correction just before a trip to Hawaii so she could enjoy her vacation unencumbered by contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses. She shares her experience in the video above.

Sometimes, we have patients come in with minor cataract problems, which haven’t progressed enough to cause vision loss and don’t qualify for cataract surgery based on Medicare guidelines.

Our eye surgeons use state-of-the-art equipment and have decades of experience with LASIK and other forms of eye surgery. Learn more in...
