About Us

Our website is a guide of the best independent eye care providers because we do not like the idea of trusting your eyes to a publicly traded company. It is our opinion that the quality of care you will find at a doctor owned center is superior than what you find at large public corporations companies like TLC Vision or Lasik Plus.

If you know of an independently owned center that you would like to see listed please tell them about LasikEyeSurgery.com Our goal is to build the most complete list of independently owned lasik eye centers around the world.

LASIK is a surgical vision correction procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The goal of Lasikeyesurgery.com is to provide objective information to the public about LASIK eye surgery and other refractive vision correction procedures.

See other sections of this site to learn about what you should know before laser surgery, what will happen during the lasik procedure, and what you should expect after surgery.

There is a glossary of terms and a checklist of issues for you to consider, practices to follow, and questions to ask your doctor before undergoing LASIK eye surgery.

If you're looking for a Vision Correction Clinic, this website also offers a directory of LASIK eye centers throughout the country and beyond.

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. A knife, called a microkeratome, is used to cut a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back revealing the stroma, the middlesection of the cornea. Pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.
