FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Q: “Is laser vision correction covered by my insurance?”
A: Most policies do not cover Laser Vision Correction. Flexible spending plans may be used to pay for LASIK. We also provide patient financing plans.

Q: Will I need to take time off from work?
A: Do not plan to return to work the day of the procedure. Any additional time off would depend on the type of laser vision correction. Most LASIK patients are able to return to work the day after surgery.

Q Does laser vision correction hurt?
A: The cornea will be numbed with eye drops during the procedure. Most patients feel little to no discomfort both during and after LASIK.

Q: Will both of my eyes be done at the same time?
A: In most cases both eyes are are done on the same day. This will avoid a period of imbalance that occurs if one eye still needs correction while the other one doesn’t.

Q: Is laser vision correction permanent?
A: Yes, a permanent change to the shape of the cornea will occur. Laser vision correction will not prevent or be able to prevent conditions that come with age like the need for reading glasses (presbyopia) or cataracts.
