Our doctors perform a complete review of your patient history, as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. Above all else, we want you to be well informed about your options and potential risks, so that you can make the best decision for your eyes.

They will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the surgeon regarding your procedure and follow-up care. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call 615-331-8688 to schedule a consultation.
