ConsultationLASIK Surgery

The goal of your LASIK consultation with Dr. Kelly is to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Kelly will go over your medical and eye health history, measure your eyes, take images, and perform other exams to evaluate your eyes. If you’re a candidate for LASIK, your treatment options will then be discussed.

JourneyLASIK Surgery

After you’ve had your LASIK consultation and it’s been determined that you’re a candidate, your personalized treatment plan will be created and you will meet with our surgical coordinator. The LASIK surgery usually only takes 10-15 minutes for both eyes, and after a few hours of blurriness, most patients are thrilled to discover that they have 20/20 vision or better.
