Most people know that LASIK can help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Most people know at least one other person who has had LASIK and now has 20/20 vision.

So why doesn’t everyone who has to wear glasses or contacts get LASIK? One of the top reasons (aside from not being a good candidate for the procedure) is the cost.

The average cost of LASIK in the United States in 2019 was $2,246 per eye.* It’s not uncommon to experience sticker shock at first. But think about how much you’re spending already.

How Much Are You Spending on Blurry Vision?

The one-time cost of LASIK may actually be cheaper in the long run than the life-long expenses of replacement glasses/contacts, cleaning solutions, etc. Here’s a very basic overview of average costs. Your annual amount for glasses and contacts may be higher or lower.

  • Contact Lenses: $250/year
  • Glasses: $360/year
  • Cleaning Solutions: $200/year
  • Estimated Cost Over 10 Years: $8,190 (and you still have blurry vision)

Beware of Cheap LASIK!

If a LASIK center quotes you a cheap price, there is probably fine print that will ultimately drive up the cost for a procedure with inferior, outdated technology or a less experienced doctor – things that may not give you the vision results you want. Your eyesight is too important to search for a bargain surgery option. 

No Need to Save Up: LASIK Financing in Miami

You may not realize that financing is usually available for LASIK. The Miami LASIK doctors at CorrectVision Laser Institute accept financing through CareCredit® to make LASIK more affordable. This plan offers 0% interest or low-interest monthly payment plans. If you qualify, you may be able to spread your procedure cost over the course of 24 months without added fees. In fact, you may already be spending close to the same amount on your glasses and contacts every month that you would spend each month paying off LASIK.

As soon as your LASIK surgery is complete, your eyes will have already begun the healing process. The initial healing period after LASIK occurs rather quickly. Long-term LASIK healing can last from several weeks to several months. It’s normal to experience some fluctuations in your vision and other side effects during your LASIK healing time.

The First Few Days of Healing:

You will need someone to drive you home following you LASIK procedure in Miami. During the first few days following LASIK, you may feel some eye pain, along with irritation and watering. Some patients experience a gritty feeling as if they have sand in their eye. Our Doctors may instruct you to wear a patch or shield over your eye for the first few days, especially while sleeping, so that you avoid rubbing your eye and eyelid. Your eyes may also be sensitive to light and your vision may be fuzzy for the first few days. You may be given medicated eye drops to help prevent infection and inflammation. You will have a check-up appointment within 24-48 hours after your surgery. During this examination, Our Doctors will check your eyes and test your vision. 

The Weeks and Months of Healing Following LASIK:

The complete LASIK healing time is normally about six months. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled during this time or longer to continue to monitor your vision and eye health. Your follow-up appointments are critical to your full recovery and must not be neglected. In most cases, vision should be stable and clear at the six-month post-op visit. If you experience dry eyes, halos, glare or other visual disturbances after your LASIK surgery, most of these symptoms should be gone or significantly reduced by your six-month visit. 

To ensure proper healing, it is very important that you carefully follow all post-operative instructions. Remember that during the LASIK healing you may experience several vision fluctuations and symptoms. For more information about LASIK in Miami or to find out if you are a candidate for the procedure, contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website

Most LASIK patients are highly satisfied with the results of their refractive surgery. However, like any other medical procedure, there are certain risks to be considered. Before undergoing a refractive procedure like LASIK, you should carefully weigh the risks and benefits. Potential LASIK surgery risks include:

Loss of Visual Acuity: Visual acuity is the sharpness of your vision. Vision that is at least 20/20 is considered ideal visual acuity. But LASIK surgery does not guarantee perfectly sharp visual acuity – like some of the ads promise – and you might not be able to completely ditch your glasses and contacts after your procedure.  

Visual Distortions: Even patients who do achieve 20/20 visual acuity following LASIK can have other problems. Some visual distortions that may be experienced include halos, double vision and issues with glare.  

Under or Over Correction: Though relatively rare, undercorrection or overcorrection are both possible complications of LASIK surgery. Those with severe myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism are at increased risk for undercorrection or overcorrection.

Dry Eye: Damage to nerves sustained during the LASIK procedure can lead to dry eye. Symptoms include discomfort, blurred vision and sensitivity to light; some patients also feel like they have something in their eye. If you already have dry eye, you may not be a suitable candidate for LASIK until you undergo treatment for it, because LASIK may worsen your existing condition.

Inflammation: Inflammation is a normal response to injury, including the cell damage caused by LASIK. If not controlled, or if caused by wound contamination, inflammation may slow the healing process, leading to corneal haze or even permanent loss of vision. Symptoms of inflammation include pain, a burning sensation and/or redness.

Regression: Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that LASIK outcomes are stable in most patients. Nonetheless, a small percentage of patients will see their vision slip over time. This is called regression.

Epithelial Ingrowth: Epithelial ingrowth occurs when cells in the epithelium (the outer layer of the cornea) move under the flap and begin to grow following surgery. Although epithelial ingrowth may not cause any problems, it can lead to blurriness, discomfort and other symptoms. Older patients are more likely to experience epithelial ingrowth.

Although laser vision correction has a very high patient satisfaction rate, negative LASIK side effects can be experienced in some patients. While serious complications are extremely rare, and most side effects are mild and temporary, patients should be fully aware of all possible risks, no matter how minor, before deciding to undergo such a procedure.

If you’re considering vision correction surgery in Coral Springs, contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website to schedule a LASIK consultation with Our Doctors.

The cost of LASIK eye surgery varies drastically across the country. Several factors influence the LASIK cost, but the average price most people pay is about $2,000 per eye. 

The price you’ll pay for your LASIK depends on several factors, including:

  • The type of laser technology you choose
  • The type of surgical instrument used to create the corneal flap
  • If your pre-op exam and follow-up visits are covered in the fee
  • If your post-op medications are included in the fee
  • If retreatments (if necessary) are covered in the fee
  • The skill, reputation and experience of your refractive surgeon
  • The community and area of the country you live in

The least expensive LASIK procedure is standard (non-wavefront-guided) LASIK; during this procedure, the corneal flap is created with a mechanical microkeratome. This is somewhat outdated LASIK technology.

The highest-priced option typically is wavefront-guided custom LASIK performed with the latest-technology excimer laser and a femtosecond laser for the corneal flap. Wavefront-guided technology uses precise computer-generated mapping of the eye to guide the excimer laser as it reshapes the cornea, often providing better visual outcomes than standard LASIK.

The eye surgeon performing your procedure will also influence the cost of LASIK eye surgery. Surgeons with the most experience tend to charge a bit more because they bring lots of expertise to the table.

LASIK Financing Options

To help patients afford LASIK and other vision correction procedures, many refractive surgeons offer financing plans to fit any budget. In some cases, zero percent financing is available for a limited payback period. Ask your eye surgeon for information about available financing plans during your LASIK consultation.

You only have one set of eyes. Choose wisely when it comes to laser vision correction surgery — don’t let the cost of the procedure be your primary consideration.

Although LASIK has greatly improved the vision of tens of thousands of patients, it’s not the best option for everyone. There are several options to LASIK to consider if you are interested in vision correction and are not a good candidate for the LASIK procedure. 

Because Dr. Clavenna in Birmingham is committed to providing the best possible outcome for each of their patients, LASIK will only be recommended if they believe it’s the best option for you. A variety of preexisting conditions and variables, such as having thin corneas or certain corneal diseases, may prevent you from having LASIK. Dr. Clavenna will determine whether any of these conditions affect you during the comprehensive exam you receive at your initial LASIK consultation.

If Dr. Clavenna determines that you aren’t a LASIK candidate, you may qualify for LASIK alternatives such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or intraocular lenses (IOLS).

PRK: Like LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) uses an excimer laser to reshape the eye’s cornea. With PRK, however, the first step of LASIK – creating a corneal flap – doesn’t occur. Instead, the excimer laser ablates the epithelium (the thin outer layer of the cornea) to correct vision, flattening the cornea in a nearsighted eye and smoothing the irregular cornea in an eye with astigmatism. This allows light entering the eye to better focus onto the retina, which results in clearer vision.

IOLS: Intraocular lenses (IOLS) are an alternative to LASIK and PRK eye surgery for correcting moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness). This procedure is generally indicated for younger patients who are not good candidates for LASIK. IOLs are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed either between the cornea and the iris (the colored portion of your eye) or just behind the iris, without removing your natural lens. These lenses enable light to focus properly on the retina for clearer vision without corrective eyewear. Implantable lenses function like contact lenses to correct nearsightedness. The difference is that IOLs work from within your eye instead of sitting on the surface of your eye. Also, IOLs offer a permanent correction of myopia, unless the lens is surgically removed.

Dr. Clavenna in Birmingham is dedicated to providing the right vision correction procedure for you. To find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK, or if another option is more appropriate for your vision correction needs, please contact Clavenna Vision Institute at 248-646-3733 or website to schedule an appointment.

In general, LASIK eye surgery is considered to be a permanent way to correct vision. Given that the procedure takes roughly 30 minutes total to complete, this is pretty impressive. Over the last several decades, LASIK results have proven to be very stable. After the initial healing period of 3 to 6 months, your distance visual acuity should remain the same for the rest of your life (provided, of course, that you don’t develop cataracts or some other age-related eye disease).

Rarely, a small percentage of patients will experience regression – a return of some nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. If a regression of this sort occurs and becomes bothersome, a follow-up procedure called a LASIK enhancement usually can be performed to restore clear vision. In many cases, patients who experience minor refractive changes after LASIK aren’t bothered by the change and don’t feel a need for additional vision correction. Others choose to wear prescription eyeglasses only for specific activities (driving at night, for example), while some opt to have enhancement surgery performed.

For the best, long lasting LASIK results, Our Doctors recommend that his patients have a stable prescription for at least 2 years before considering the procedure. Usually before the mid-20s a person’s eyes may be still growing and changing. Having a stable prescription for at least 2 years is an important consideration for anyone, young or old, to be deemed a good LASIK candidate. For patients in their 40s-50s, it’s important to understand that at some point in the future, they may experience presbyopia, a normal age-related loss of near focusing ability which causes up-close vision to become blurred. When this happens, most people need to wear reading glasses to read and to see near objects clearly.

For most patients, LASIK is a safe, permanent vision correction method. If you are interested in joining the thousands of satisfied LASIK patients in Pembroke Pines, contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website to schedule your consultation.

LASIK is an investment in your vision. Based on patient experience, it’s also an experience that adds valued benefits and satisfaction to a person’s life. Having LASIK eye surgery is a better solution for many people that have nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism than other visual aids. Using a prescription product in close contact with the eye is a perfectly acceptable solution, but LASIK surgery offers many benefits compared to contacts and eyeglasses. 

LASIK surgery benefits you may experience include:

  • No worry of infection from prolonged contact lens use
  • Fewer infections in general
  • No lens cleaning solution fees
  • No contact refills every year
  • Less damaging to the eye over time
  • Fewer trips to the optometrist
  • More freedom
  • Ability to be spontaneous
  • Improved night vision
  • Reduced allergy symptoms
  • Fewer headaches
  • Less eye strain compared to using optical aids

In reality, LASIK is less expensive over time than contacts or glasses. LASIK eye surgery is a fixed cost. Although LASIK surgery is a large one-time expense, it’s often cheaper than the long-term cost of contact lens wear or eyeglasses. Once you have the treatment, there are no more fees. Care Credit monthly financing plans, Health Spending Accounts and other options may help you pay with a monthly payment for the length of time that fits your budget.

If you’re wondering if you can afford LASIK, we offer a full range of monthly payment options, from no interest and extended options to low monthly plans that fit any budget. If you’re ready to invest in LASIK, contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website to schedule your LASIK consultation today!

In general, medical procedures evolve and improve over time. This is especially true with LASIK eye surgery. The latest LASIK technology hardly resembles the original procedure first introduced decades ago. 

LASIK Then

Although LASIK eye surgery formally began being performed in the 1990s, its roots date back to the 1960s. During the early days of LASIK-type procedures, the surgeon would use a mechanized tool with a blade to create the corneal flap and a somewhat crude (by today’s standard) laser to reshape the corneal surface. With the introduction of the excimer laser, the procedure became more precise and resulted in more widespread acceptance but this was, by no means, the only important advance in vision correction technology. Over the years, a number of innovations such as eye trackers, iris registration, wavefront technology and the introduction of ultra-precise lasers have improved safety and outcomes of refractive surgery.

LASIK Now

Over time, the laser systems used within LASIK have continued to develop, especially with the integration of Custom Wavefront technology. Custom Wavefront has given LASIK specialists a level of refinement that they didn’t have previously. It allows more sophistication in the anatomical profile of every patient. Today’s most sophisticated LASIK procedure involves totally customized flaps, preplanned on a dashboard using a high-frequency laser and a second pupil-tracking laser to reshape the cornea to correct not only refractive error but corneal aberrations.

LASIK has gained a new popularity as patients have taken a second look at the procedure because of the newer innovations in LASIK technology. The result of LASIK advancements is a much safer procedure with better outcomes. Want to find out if LASIK is right for you? Contact Correct Vision laser Institute by calling 954-442-1133 or visiting website to schedule a consultation with Our Doctors, who performs LASIK eye surgery in Coral Springs.

The LASIK procedure may cause many patients to experience dry eye symptoms after their surgery. This is especially true if the patient experienced dry eyes before LASIK. But why do so many patients experience LASIK and dry eyes? 

The first step of the LASIK procedure in Miami is the creation of a thin, corneal flap. This flap allows Our Doctors to apply laser pulses to the underlying corneal tissue to reshape it in order to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. When the flap is created, the very fine corneal nerves may be severed. These nerves detect how wet the eye is and signal the lacrimal gland to produce tears. So, sometimes, the temporary interruption of the corneal nerve impulses can cause a lesser number of tears to be produced, resulting in dry eyes after LASIK. 

Most patients will have a resolution of dry eye symptoms within a few months of having their LASIK procedure. In some extreme cases, symptoms may persist for an extended period of time. All LASIK patients will need to use lubricating drops frequently during the first few weeks after their LASIK surgery. Other measures are occasionally necessary to improve comfort and visual clarity. These include the use of oral Omega 3 supplements, punctal plugs and prescription eye drops such as Restasis.

During a LASIK consultation in Miami, it is important to disclose any symptoms you may have of dry eyes and to disclose any medications you are taking that might predispose you to dry eyes after your LASIK procedure. Our Doctors can then take the necessary steps to prepare you for your LASIK procedure and minimize the severity of LASIK and dry eyes. Working together with Our Doctors will maximize your chances of a smooth post-operative course and allow you to obtain the best possible results from your LASIK procedure. Contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website to schedule your LASIK appointment today!

Not everyone is a good candidate for laser eye surgery. There are several reasons why laser eye surgery may not be a good choice of vision correction for some patients. Below is some information about who is not suitable for laser eye surgery:

Those who are younger than 18 years old. Laser eye surgery results are considered permanent. However, a person’s eye can change throughout life. Because vision can change dramatically during the adolescent years, laser eye surgery is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Those who are pregnant or nursing. Hormone fluctuations during pregnancy and nursing can cause changes to a woman’s vision and corrective prescription. Mothers considering laser eye surgery should wait 3-6 months or longer after weaning to allow their prescription to stabilize. 

Those who are taking certain prescription drugs. Some prescription drugs can interfere with laser eye surgery results. For example, some steroids may delay healing and decrease optimal results. Acne medications can cause significant dry eye which can increase the chance of corneal scarring after laser eye surgery. 

Those whose vision is not stable. If your prescription is fluctuating, you will not be considered a good candidate for laser eye surgery. Most doctors prefer your prescription to be stable for 1-2 years. Prescriptions can fluctuate for a variety of reasons. Contact lens wear, diabetic blood sugar changes and normal aging changes can cause your prescription to change over time.

Those who are not in good general health. Certain medical conditions can affect the way your body heals after surgery. Patients with autoimmune diseases are not good candidates for laser eye surgery. Many autoimmune conditions cause dry eye syndrome. A dry eye may not heal well and has a higher risk of post-surgery infection. Other conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, glaucoma or cataracts often affect results. 

Those who have dry eye syndrome. A person with dry eyes has an increased risk for significant post-surgery discomfort and a possible worsening of dry eye symptoms. Having dry eyes can also delay proper healing. Some people with dry eye symptoms can find relief through various treatments. Sometimes patients are placed on special dry eye medications before laser eye surgery. Certain procedures, such as punctal occlusion, may be performed to help the dry eye condition and minimize unwanted symptoms.

Those who have unrealistic expectations. If you expect perfection, laser eye surgery may not be for you. Every patient heals differently after surgery. After undergoing laser eye surgery there is always a possibility that you may need to wear reading glasses or corrective lenses for at least some activities. 

While laser eye surgery is an excellent vision correction procedure for many people, it is not for everyone. To find out if laser eye surgery is suitable for you, schedule a consultation with Our Doctors in Hollywood. Contact Correct Vision laser Institute at 954-442-1133 or website today.
