What Is LASIK?
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a surgery that reshapes your cornea through the use of lasers. It’s a quick and precise procedure that can correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism, enabling you to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK is typically painless, its results are immediate, and its recovery period is short. In many cases, the surgery can be performed on both eyes in under 15 minutes, and since it’s an outpatient procedure, you will be able to relax in the comfort of your own home as your eyes heal. To learn more, visit one of our Dallas LASIK surgeons at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Center.
The surgery is quick and pain-free, generally producing results in only 15-30 minutes.

Could you be a good LASIK candidate?
If you wear glasses or contacts, it’s possible to improve your vision through LASIK surgery.
Healthy clients with certain eyesight problems are great candidates for LASIK. Many farsighted and nearsighted people are good fits, as well as those with astigmatism. If you would benefit from the freedom of sharp vision without glasses or contacts, schedule an in-depth consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for our Dallas laser vision correction services.
Our Dallas LASIK surgeons will look at the shape of your corneas and the health of your eyes. Every year, over 600,000 Americans benefit from LASIK surgery.
How Does LASIK Work?
This non-invasive laser vision correction surgery is done with lasers to reshape your cornea. Special suction tools are used to keep your eyes open as the laser does its work in about five minutes per eye. This pain-free procedure has little downtime or recovery required. The entire process usually takes around 15 minutes and you can get back to normal activities within the next day.
With the newly shaped cornea, you will experience sharper vision without the need for additional lenses. While there is no guarantee, we have a high success rate and many patients that are thrilled with the process. Most will experience sharper vision within 1-3 days of surgery, though the full healing process will take up to three months.

This is the most common elective surgeries done in the world, with over 600,000 done in the US alone every year! There is very little risk when done by an experienced surgeon.

I am two months post-op and my experience has been great. 20/20 vision after 30+ years of glasses. Staff was thorough, prompt, and well mannered. Cannot recommend enough.

Is LASIK Safe?
Did you know that more than 600,000 LASIK surgeries are performed in the United States each year? LASIK is one of the most common elective medical procedures in the world, and according to studies reviewed by the FDA, more than 95 percent of LASIK patients are satisfied with the results of their surgeries.
The FDA considers LASIK to be safe and effective when performed on a good candidate by an experienced surgeon. The overwhelming majority of LASIK patients are satisfied with the improvements to their vision, and research shows that well-informed patients find that the benefits of LASIK considerably outweigh the risks.
The recovery period following LASIK is quite short. Patients tend to experience noticeably sharper vision within one to three days, and in most cases, will be able to drive and return to work the day after their procedure. If you experience blurriness or fluctuations in the clarity of your vision, there’s no need to worry — both are completely normal parts of the healing process, which can take up to two or three months in total.
After your procedure, your surgeon will send you home with eye drops and instructions on when and how to use them. Regular visits with your surgeon in the 12 months after your surgery will help guarantee that your eyes heal properly. All follow-up appointments are included in the cost of your LASIK procedure.

How Much Does LASIK Surgery Cost?
Because everyone’s eyes are different, there’s no generic LASIK surgery. At Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers of Texas, your procedure will be tailored to the specific shape of your eyes in order to improve your vision. Due to this level of personalization, the price of LASIK may be different for you than it is for others.
During your free LASIK consultation, your surgeon will be able to provide you with a detailed quote, which will be based on a few factors, including the strength of your current prescription, your lifestyle, and your overall eye health.
If you and your surgeon determine that you’re not a good candidate for LASIK, there’s no need to worry! There are a number of other procedures that can help improve your vision so you can live without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses.
Visian ICL is a procedure designed to correct common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. However, unlike LASIK and PRK, the procedure doesn’t make use of lasers. Instead, a surgeon places an implantable collamer lens (ICL) into your eye that works with your natural lens to improve your vision. This makes Visian ICL a good option for patients who have chronically dry eyes or thin or abnormally shaped corneas.
