At a time when many surgeons perform the LASER - LASIK procedure, I ensure your best results by being affiliated with the most qualified surgeons and laser centers with the latest generation lasers.

As an optometrist I can provide the most complete, careful, and EXACT refractive measurements. Getting the most accurate prescription on which to set the laser is the best way to minimize over and under correction from the start. Then as your primary eye care doctor, I will provide your ongoing care and monitor your eyes in the days, weeks and months following your surgery.

Furthermore, some patients will be better off without surgery. Some patients may even be trading one vision problem for another in view of their age or other prescription variables. Discussing your lifestyle vision needs and demonstrating expected outcomes is an important part of your decision to have surgery. As an optometrist in practice for over 25 years in the Saddleback Valley, I will give you an honest opinion.




Lasik or Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis treats refractive errors by removing corneal tissue beneath the surface of the cornea. The eye is anesthetized with drops at the beginning of the procedure to ensure a painless experience. A laser is first used to create a flap on the front surface of the cornea, which is three human hairs thick. Opening the flap is much like opening a cover of a book.

The computer driven laser is then programmed to vaporize microscopic layers of the internal corneal tissue under the flap. After the cornea is reshaped, the flap is closed, much like closing a book. The cornea has extraordinary bonding qualities that allow effective healing without the use of stitches. The entire procedure takes only 10 minutes. Most patients experience a dramatic improvement in their vision within 24 to 48 hours, allowing them to resume normal activities and work. However, it may take several weeks for vision to stabilize.
