No, the laser can’t burn a hole in your eye. But it’s a good question. Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions at SharpeVision. Some of them may surprise you!
At SharpeVision, we perform only all-laser LASIK. Your surgeon will use an extremely precise femtosecond laser to create a flap in the cornea. The surgeon then uses another laser to reshape the cornea, correcting the refraction problems in the eye.
LASIK is one of the most commonly performed eye laser surgery for many reasons:
LASIK is also more convenient in the long run, and with SharpeVision’s Austin LASIK surgery, more cost-effective too! We have the best LASIK Austin prices and a price-match guarantee to prove it!
LASIK, an acronym for Laser-assisted in situ Keratomileusis, is a procedure that involves the use of a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye’s cornea to improve vision. The cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye that helps focus light rays to create an image on the retina. Imperfection of the shape of the cornea causes images to be distorted on the retina, thus vision problems such as:
The average cost per eye for LASIK and PRK in the US is $2300, with a range from $1500 to $3000. An advertised price lower than $1000 is typically only for the lowest prescriptions without astigmatism. Most LASIK providers will make you come in to receive a quote for surgery. At SharpeVision our pricing is clear and consistent and listed on our pricing page, so you’ll know what to expect to pay for LASIK before your consultation- just compare our pricing to the prescription of each of your eyes. For example, if your left eye is -1.25 and and your right eye is -1.0, your total cost of LASIK would be $495 + $2395= $2890 for both eyes. The price is the same whether you have LASIK or PRK. We also have a price-match guarantee: if you happen to get a lower price quote for LASIK or PRK somewhere else, we will match the price for service, just bring in your paperwork. It’s that simple!
There are very few things that can go wrong during the surgery, and the chances of any of those things occurring are slight. More important to the outcome of your surgery, we advise everyone to check out the surgeon’s credentials, experience, online presence and reviews, and to then visit the center and get an overall feel for the practice. Did you have a good feeling about the team, the physical appearance and processes internally? I believe that a higher volume of patients is good for practice consistency and to hone results. However, if you feel like they’re rushing you through, you may not receive the same attention and responsiveness of a smaller practice. This can be an issue at a multi-surgeon clinic. I feel like we have found the perfect combination at SharpeVision: we do a lot of procedures, which keeps us polished, and our surgeon-run boutique centers keep our patients at the front of everything we do.
SharpeVision looks at things a little differently. Take LASIK. Just because you’re having a procedure doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable. And just because you’re comfortable doesn’t mean you should have to pay more. Everything can be improved if you look at it with the right set of eyes. And that’s what we’re doing for you. You get the best price combined with the best experience. Not just giving you a new view, but a new outlook. So when you leave here, you’ll be looking at things differently. You’ll be looking Sharpe.
Our surgeons have had the privilege of treating a wide range of professional athletes, coaches, and trainers. We are honored to partner with and support AUSTIN FC, and honored that the players and staff trust us with their vision.
The majority of people (90%) who meet the age and general health requirements are good candidates for LASIK in Austin. However, there are some conditions that exclude certain patients. Take the quiz to see if LASIK is right for you.
The whole process was smooth and efficient and pleasant from the first call to the check up a month after the procedure. Love the lifetime guarantee as well.
