Lasik Eye Surgery
Whether you’re nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, your everyday life doesn’t have to be limited by your dependence on glasses and contacts. LASIK vision correction can free you from the hassles of glasses and contacts. Imagine what that world will look like with your new set of eyes!

Before modern day Lasik a layer of cornea was removed from the eye with a special machine called a keratome.
Next the cornea was stitched back onto the eye.
My friend Bill Avalos MD was responsible for the realization that the cap of cornea did not need to be stitched back onto the eye. A major discovery!
Before Lasik the eye was cut again as shown in the center. That second cut created my need to develop a laser to make this “cut” more accurate.
Modern day Lasik involves a flap followed by lasering. We thought the flap might create a new problem but never did. Over time laser technology evolved to produce the most accurate treatment.
