LASIK Safety

As technology for corrective eye surgery continues to evolve, our patients feel increasingly more comfortable committing to LASIK surgery as a way to improve their vision. You probably know friends and family members who have had great success after LASIK. You may have also heard about the risks involved. Vision is such an important sense for all of us that it is reasonable for you to have concerns about the safety of eye surgery.


Your safety is of utmost importance to us. That is why Dr. Golden and his staff use the latest VISX Custom Wavefront technology. From the beginning, VISX has been the leader in laser vision technology and more doctors in the United Stated use the VISX laser than all the others combined. The FDA has given the VISX laser the widest ranging approvals available for any laser used in vision correction surgery.

With active tracking, our eye surgeons are able to accurately and precisely correct your vision while the tracker follows every move your eye makes naturally during the procedure.

Are you a good candidate for LASIK?

Chances are you know the kind of eye disorder you are experiencing. If you are farsighted, nearsighted or have astigmatism, these can all be helped with LASIK. One of the biggest safety aspects when it comes to LASIK surgery is identifying the best treatment for your eyes. We carefully test your eyes to determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK and if you are not the perfect match, we will let you know.

Personalized Care

Our eye surgeons have performed thousands of successful Laser Vision Correction procedures. You will be well equipped for every aspect of the process because we walk you through it before it happens. It helps to understand that your recovery continues after you leave the operating room. We provide you with thorough follow-up care and evaluations and you are always welcome to call if you ever have any questions.

Your eyes are as unique as you are and we will work with you to determine whether LASIK is safe for your situation. During your initial evaluation, you will have the chance to discuss your options with our highly skilled LASIK surgeons. We can show you how LASIK and your lifestyle can work well together.
