LASIK

Clear vision is an option.

Advances in technology mean that more people with certain vision corrections have access to LASIK. The procedure is short. It involves creating a flap on the eye’s surface and using a laser to gently reshape the cornea. The goal is to change how light enters the eye to create your best possible vision. Many people can even eliminate or reduce their dependence on glasses or contacts. At NSES, we have the experience you can trust. Our specialists were the first in the state to use the Alcon WaveLight® EX500 Excimer LaserLASIK. We also implement the Ziemer Z2 Laser to create the flap during the first part of the procedure. Learn more about our LASIK and see how our specialists can create better vision for you.
