Q: Can I have Lasik surgery?

A: We examine your eyes to see if you are a candidate for Lasik surgery if you tell us you want this procedure to improve your nearsightedness or farsightedness. Not all of our clients who opt for the Lasik procedure is a candidate for this procedure, we will let you know. If you have can have Lasik or cataract surgery we do the surgical procedure right here in our clinic. 

Q: Will Lasik surgery give me 20/20 vision?

A: After you have a lens implant for cataracts you will be amazed at how clear and sharp your vision becomes. No one has the same outcome after cataract surgery. You may need glasses after surgery because Lasik did not provide you with 20/20 vision.  Lens implant surgery is different for each patient and this is a normal outcome. We provide all your pre-op and post-op care. If glasses are what you need we carry an extensive range of fashionable eyewear.
