LASIK Surgery

If you’re tired of dealing with the inconvenience of glasses or contact lenses, LASIK eye surgery at Novus Clinic in Tallmadge is an excellent alternative. LASIK Surgery is also easy and affordable with interest-free financing.

Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a laser eye surgery procedure designed to reduce your dependency on glasses and contact lenses. This FDA-approved procedure is used to correct refractive problems such as myopia, (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism by permanently changing the shape of the cornea (the thin, clear covering of your eye).

Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is a type of laser eye surgery used to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism.

Visian ICL provides vision correction that goes beyond LASIK. It helps you enjoy sharper, clearer, and more vivid vision, with greater depth and dimension.

With new advances such as “Wavefront LASIK” guided technology and laser eye tracking, correcting your vision has never had greater precision, and we will customize a laser treatment that is as unique as you are.

Am I a good candidate for LASIK surgery?

You might be a good laser eye surgery candidate if you are over 18 years of age and have had a stable prescription for about 2 years. Potential refractive patients need to have overall good ocular health, meaning their eyes are free from any eye disease or corneal abnormalities from previous scars (sometimes due to contact lens over wear and abuse) or infections. You must not be currently pregnant or nursing and or be post-partum and deceased nursing 3-6 months prior to an evaluation.

What are LASIK surgery’s expected results?

20/40 or better. To obtain your licenses without corrective eyewear, you must test 20/40 or better. During your evaluation, the surgeon will determine based on your current prescription whether a 20/40 outcome can be achieved.

LASIK patients experience 1-2 days of limited downtime and those post-op instructions will be reviewed with you on the day of your evaluation.

LASIK is considered an elective procedure by many insurance companies, but different vision plans do offer a discount on refractive procedures. We are proud to be contracted with Vision Service Plan (VSP), EyeMed and Davis Vision, to extend those discounts on to our patients. Please be sure to tell our staff that you have one of the above plans when scheduling your FREE Evaluation.
