Outstanding eye care practice! Very impressed with the confidence and willingness to explain procedures of Dr. McIntire. The staff is helpful, friendly and professional. The courtesy and detailed response to questions are commendable. Very nice experience. – Tom
Best eye care ever! Dr. Lara Dudek and Jessica were wonderful. The office is opened late on Monday's for people who work, so you don't have to take a day off. That alone is wonderful. I needed my contacts tweaked a bit, so went back in today. They worked with me for over an hour! They were great, they just wanted to make sure the contacts worked. Call them! – Karen

All About All-Laser LASIK
LASIK is a two-step process. The first step involves creating a protective corneal flap and the second step involves using an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to the desired shape to give you great uncorrected visual acuity. We can and do perform LASIK with a microkeratome blade, but we prefer the safety and precision of blade-free All-Laser Intralase. This form of LASIK uses a computerized laser to create a more structured corneal flap, taking a surgeon's dexterity with a blade out of the equation. Once the corneal flap is made, a second laser reshapes the cornea gently using a "cold" excimer laser. Once complete, the corneal flap is replaced, and the laser treatment is complete!
Most patients will see an immediately improvement in their vision. The recovery time for LASIK is extremely short, and full recovery occurs within a matter of days. We do ask that patients refrain from performing certain activities, such as swimming, for a week or two following LASIK.
This is a common question, and here is what our past patients have said. If you add up the cost of glasses and contact lenses, and all the accessories that go with those things, then you will see that LASIK can easily pay for itself in a matter of years. Furthermore, your vision will be better than those ocular accommodations could provide you. Also, in the short term, we offer multiple financing options to patients that most people will easily qualify for.
