Houston LASIK Eye Surgery – Over 75,000 Procedures Completed

lasikLASIK is an FDA-approved laser eye surgery that has been performed over 20 million times worldwide since 1995, and is considered one of the most successful and safe elective surgeries available. It uses refractive laser technology to gently reshape your cornea so that you no longer need glasses or contacts to see properly. The many benefits of LASIK surgery include:
  • Quick, customized treatments
  • Over 95% of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better
  • Most affordable laser vision correction cost
  • Return to normal activities the day after surgery
  • Long-term cost savings on glasses and contact lenses

Are You a Candidate for LASIK Treatment?

Based on national averages, over 95% of people in Houston who wear glasses or contacts are likely good candidates for LASIK. Start by taking our simple self-test to see which vision correction procedure may be the right fit for you. Next, book an appointment with us so we can assess your eyes in person and determine your eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. To qualify for LASIK or Soft Touch Micro-LASIK®:
  • At least 18 years old
  • Stable (normal variations) prescription for at least one year
  • Sufficient corneal thickness (at least 0.5mm)
  • No previous serious eye injuries
  • Normal tear levels (measured at our office)
  • No serious eye disease, including advanced glaucoma, cataracts, keratoconus, and certain types of herpes
  • Not pregnant or nursing
The strength of your glasses prescription may also affect your ability to qualify for this procedure. Generally, the limits are:
  • Maximum +6 for farsightedness
  • Maximum -12 for nearsightedness
  • Maximum +6 diopters for astigmatism
If you don’t meet the qualifications for LASIK, you may still be eligible for other treatment options, such as EVO ICL or other lens implants

What to Expect with Your LASIK Procedure

Before your surgery, anesthetic drops will be put on your eyes to numb them. You’ll lie down on the laser bed while your eyelids are gently kept from closing when you blink with a special lid holder. Using a laser light, Dr. Mattioli will create a thin flap in your cornea. Once the flap is folded back, he will use the laser to reshape the surface underneath based on your specific vision needs. The flap is then laid back into place, acting as a natural bandage, and the procedure is over. The entire procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes for both eyes. You may feel mild stinging or blurry vision immediately after surgery, but this typically resolves within 24 hours. Your eyes may be sensitive to light and touch as they heal over the next several days. For most occupations, patients typically can go back to work by the next day after LASIK surgery. Within a week, you can expect significantly improved vision without the need for glasses or contacts anymore.
