What Is LASIK?

LASIK is a vision correction surgery with the potential to provide life-changing vision correction. Using ultraprecise lasers, our expert LASIK team painlessly reshapes your cornea, the front of your eye, to sharpen your vision. If you have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, LASIK can improve your eyesight and reduce your dependency on eyewear — and at Alliance Vision Institute, our dedicated staff will help you understand your care and ensure your comfort at every step.

The Value of LASIK

The clearest reason to get LASIK is that it can significantly enhance your vision and reduce or eliminate the need to wear glasses and contacts. It’s also a more cost-effective option: nearly all patients save money over the long run with LASIK surgery compared to years of frames, contact lenses, and related supplies and exams.

And it’s impossible to put a value on the convenience and improved quality of life LASIK can bring you —the first time a patient is able to read or drive without glasses can be life-changing!

Is LASIK Safe?

Yes, very! All surgeries have some risk of side effects, but LASIK is one of the safest and most common surgical procedures performed today. Temporary side effects like dry eye and light sensitivity are normal and should clear up quickly, and we can walk you through what to expect during a free consultation.

Your LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery in Fort Worth, TX
Dr. Taylor Strange is our experienced, board-certified LASIK surgeon with thousands of successful eye surgeries to his name. Dr. Strange graduated near the top of his class with a perfect GPA and brings that perfectionism to every surgery he performs. He sits down with his patients to explore their case and determine the vision correction solution that best fits their needs — he has also experienced LASIK as a patient, and knows how to make the patient experience just as exceptional as the procedure itself!

Most motivated adults are a great fit for LASIK! During a free LASIK consultation, we’ll determine if you’re a good candidate for the surgery by confirming that you:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Haven’t had a change in your vision prescription in the past year
  • Don’t have eye conditions, or signs of eye conditions, like glaucoma or cataracts
  • Aren’t pregnant or nursing
  • Are ready to rely less on contact lenses or glasses!
While LASIK can be a life-changing procedure, it’s important to have the right expectations, and we never want to overpromise at Alliance Vision Institute. Successful LASIK surgery can allow you to perform most everyday tasks without the need for corrective eyewear and can greatly improve your vision: the vast majority of patients achieve 20/20 or better. However, even after successful LASIK, some patients will need to use eyewear in certain situations, and full results won’t develop immediately following surgery. We can set expectations for your situation during a free consult.

While LASIK can be a life-changing procedure, it’s important to have the right expectations, and we never want to overpromise at Alliance Vision Institute.

What to Expect from LASIK At Alliance

Every LASIK surgery at Alliance Vision Institute starts with a free consult to determine if you’re a great candidate for the surgery. You’ll get a rundown of the advanced technology we use to provide our patients optimal vision results, and the steps you should take before your surgery appointment like stopping wearing contacts. Rest assured, anything we recommend is the best fit for your needs.

When the time comes for your surgery, we’ll apply a numbing agent so you experience no discomfort during surgery — all you may feel is a slight pressure. We’ll then gently and precisely reshape your eye’s cornea using our advanced laser technology: this allows us to closely follow a predetermined surgical plan, but with the flexibility for Dr. Strange to make any further adjustments as needed.

After surgery, you may have some mild visual distortion, dry eye, and discomfort in the days after your surgery, but they should clear up quickly. Many patients will see nearly immediate results and be able to return to normal activities soon after, with full results after a couple of months. We’ll guide you through your recovery with personal post-operative appointments to ensure you have excellent results!
