We often say that our goal is to bring you lifelong visual clarity, from kindergarten to cataracts. And one of the best ways to enhance your vision in the intervening years is with our Custom LASIK procedure.
What is LASIK?
LASIK is a safe and effective vision correction surgery that can dramatically improve your myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism. When the front part of your eye, the cornea, is shaped wrong, your eye won’t be able to focus on certain distances.
We use ultraprecise laser technology to painlessly reshape your eye to see better across all distances. With our decades of expertise, tens of thousands of successful procedures, and state-of-the-art LASIK technology, you can rely on us to deliver a personalized LASIK procedure — and optimal results.

LASIK Safety & Advanced Technology
We use wavefront-guided technology — that means we scan your eye to make a map, as unique as your fingerprint, to feed directly into our laser. This gives us an unrivaled understanding of your vision correction needs and enables the Star S4 laser to adjust your eyesight to an ultraprecise degree.
This also allows us to consider potential vision issues not directly related to your vision prescription. With a map and laser this accurate, we can maximize your contrast sensitivity, night vision, and ability to make out even the finest of details, while minimizing side effects like halos around lights.
Your Patient Experience
Your LASIK surgery process begins with a free, no-expectations consultation, where we’ll evaluate and map your eye to determine if you’re a great candidate. We’ll also walk you through our technology and the Custom LASIK procedure.
We transfer your unique eye map and other correction information directly into our Star S4 laser. We gently reshape the cornea by removing microscopic amounts of tissue, often less than the width of a human hair; you should experience little or no discomfort due to our numbing of the area. Surgery may take only 10 minutes per eye.
After & Outcomes
You may experience some mild discomfort or visual distortion in the hours or days immediately following LASIK, but they should dissipate quickly.
Many patients see immediate results that continue to improve over the span of weeks. Ultimately, there’s a very high chance for most people that you can achieve better than 20/20 vision!
Are You a Good Candidate For LASIK?
We can determine whether you qualify LASIK or even an alternative procedure during a free consultation. There’s no downside to finding out what life-changing vision correction can do for you!
