What to Expect

MODERN LASIK: Start to Finish

Comprehensive Exam

A comprehensive, dilated examination is the only way to know which vision-correction procedure is best for you. We do this at no charge because we believe so strongly in giving patients all the information necessary to make the right treatment choice. While your exam involves comprehensive diagnostic testing, it is also our opportunity to learn more about you, your expectations, and your lifestyle. All of these factors play an important role in recommending the best procedure for you:

The complete exam can take up to 90 minutes. After all the data is collected, our doctor will examine you, discuss the treatment recommendation, and answer any questions you have. Your visit will include dilation of your pupils, which will affect your eyesight for about 4-6 hours, as you may have experienced with a routine eye exam.

You have questions. We have answers.

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!

  • How much is laser eye surgery in 2024?

    The average cost per eye for LASIK and PRK in the USA went up in 2023 like most things, due to inflation, and is around $2500, with a range from $1500 to $3500. An advertised price lower than $1000 is typically only for the lowest prescriptions without astigmatism. At SHARPEVISION, our pricing is clear and consistent and based on your level of prescription and other factors related to your anatomy. We will know where you fall in our pricing after we have given your eyes a thorough evaluation at your free consultation.  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!

    Our ICL and RLE pricing is consistent for everyone because we are inserting a lens into the eye and not changing the shape of the cornea. These prices are listed on our pricing page– which no one else does BTW!

  • What are the odds of LASIK eye surgery going wrong?

    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.

  • Which insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of laser eye surgery?

    Most insurance/vision plans do not pay towards LASIK or PRK, but we do honor the discount from EyeMed, VSP, and Davis, so that if you’re a member, your out of pocket expense will be the same. Always check with your insurance carrier or health benefits administrator before coming in for your exam. A few forward-thinking companies are currently paying for some or all of their employees’ LASIK, PRK, and ICL including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Adaptive Biotech, and Zillow in Seattle.


  • How long does it take to recover from laser eye surgery?

    There are two types of laser vision correction surgery: LASIK (Laser Assisted In Situ Keritomileusis, also called Custom Lasik, Wavelight, Topography-Guided, or Z-LASIK) and PRK (Photo-refractive Keratectomy, also called LASEK, Advanced Surface Ablation, or epi-LASIK) LASIK is the predominant type of laser vision correction, whereby a flap is made on the cornea, which is the clear dome of tissue overlying the iris (colored part of the eye). In this surgery, most people see well enough to drive and return to work the very next day. Your vision will continue to improve over several weeks to months, but your sight will be surprisingly good and you will be comfortable only 4-6 hours post-surgery. PRK surgery is quick and painless, just like LASIK. The recovery, however, takes longer and is more uncomfortable for the first two days. Your surgeon will place contact lenses over your eyes to protect the surface while they heal. Your vision will gradually improve over the coming weeks, but will take slightly longer than LASIK to be fully clear. The same laser is used and the end result is the same as LASIK, but PRK is better suited to some eyes for a variety of reasons. The most common reason why you would need PRK is if your cornea is too thin for LASIK. It would also be performed on someone who has had a corneal procedure in the past or for vocational reasons such as entering certain branches of the military.
