Q1:How do I know if I?m a candidate for LASIK?

A1:Our first step is a FREE consultation to help determine if LASIK is an option for you.


Q2:Do you offer other surgeries other than LASIK to correct my vision?

A2:Yes, we offer many different procedures to help correct vision.  This allows us to perform what is safest for your eyes.


Q3:How much does LASIK cost?

A3:There are 3 types of laser vision correction each with a  different cost.  At your FREE consultation we will discuss fees after determining what option is safest and best for you.


Q4:What is a cataract?

A4: A cataract is a clouding of all or part of the normally clear lens within your eye. This causes blurred or distorted vision. Specific diets or laser treatments will not lessen the effect of cataracts. Cataract surgery can restore your vision long before you experience a loss of vision that interferes with your daily activities.


Q5:Do you offer Advanced Laser Cataract Surgery? A5:Yes.  Continuing with our mission of offering the latest advancements in eye care, we now are very proud to offer Advanced Laser Cataract Surgery.
