What is LASIK?

LASIK is the most profoundly popular and successful way to correct vision. As one of the millions of LASIK patients in the United States, you can get rid of the need for glasses or contact lenses and get back to the things you love – without the hassle of ensuring you can see clearly. Permanent vision correction like LASIK means you can live your daily life like you never needed corrective lenses in the first place. LASIK is a laser surgery that precisely reshapes the natural corneal tissue to account for refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. With an exact, personalized procedure, our team at Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology can help you achieve perfect vision for a lifetime.

The #1 Laser Vision Surgery

LASIK is performed millions of times every year and has over 30 years of success – it’s the most comprehensive option for patients who want to get rid of corrective lenses. It’s an extremely quick and precise procedure, taking only 20 minutes in total. It relies on industry-leading laser technology to reshape the cornea, allowing your ophthalmologist to achieve an exact level of correction. This makes it the single best way to achieve crystal-clear vision without corrective lenses or implants.


Benefits of LASIK

LASIK is extremely beneficial for individuals who wish to improve their eyesight and do not wish to wear contact lenses or glasses. About 9 out of 10 people who have LASIK will end up with vision between 20/20 and 20/40 without lenses or contacts! LASIK can also be used to correct presbyopia or the age-related loss of close-up vision.

LASIK Candidates

To qualify for LASIK, a patient must be over the age of 18 and be in generally good health. Those who have had previous eye diseases or injuries, or who are pregnant or nursing are not candidates for this procedure. The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nguyen. During this consultation, she will check the overall health of your eyes to determine if this procedure is right for you.
