If you are considering refractive surgery you may inquire by email about our FREE screenings. Our refractive surgery Coordinator will answer your email. Financing is available. We offer Low Interest and No Interest* Patient Payment Plans through CareCredit.

The first step for an individual in determining whether or not he or she is a candidate for refractive surgery is to speak with an eye care professional. Only an eye doctor can diagnose certain conditions that may make refractive surgery a poor choice, including conditions such as thin corneas or dry eyes.
