What is LASIK?
During surgery, our ophthalmologists use a femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap that will allow access to alter the shape of the cornea. All-laser technology with the femtosecond laser is far more precise than using a mechanical blade, and is highly customizable to each eye of every unique patient.
Is LASIK surgery right for me?
- Are you having trouble with distance vision?
- Are you having difficulty reading or seeing well at night?
- Do you have depth perception issues?
- Are you nearsighted, farsighted, or do you have an astigmatism?

What's It Like To Have LASIK
Schedule A Consultation
At a time that’s convenient for you, a Inland eye doctor will meet with you to discuss the changes in your vision and help you understand available options. The consultation and diagnostic testing do not obligate you to any future service, they simply help us determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. You will have an opportunity to schedule your procedure at this appointment.
Arrive At The Inland Office For LASIK
After being greeted by the staff, you are met by the ophthalmologist who will be performing your LASIK procedure. After a final diagnostic exam, the lasers are set with your exact prescription. You enter the laser suite for the procedure, which lasts about 15-20 min.
Travel Home For Recovery
After surgery, you must have a friend or family member provide your transportation home. You will experience improved vision right away, but we recommend not reading, driving, or using a computer for the rest of the day. After a good night’s sleep, you can return to work the next day.
Come Back The Next Day For A Post-Op Checkup
It is important that you meet with an Inland eye doctor the day after your LASIK procedure. We will confirm that your eyes are healthy and clear you for normal activity.
