LASIK stands for laser-in-situ-keratomileusis, a procedure that uses specialized lasers to correct vision by creating a flap in the cornea and reshaping it. This surgery is effective for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and can eliminate the need for glasses or contacts, resulting in clear, sharp vision.
IVG uses the most advanced LASIK technology in the world, which maps 22,000 unique elevation points to provide a personalized treatment for your eye. The highly precise and accurate map of your eye provides:

The good news is even if you do not qualify for LASIK surgery, IVG offers various other procedures that may fit your vision needs.
The short answer is yes, the benefits of LASIK will last most patients a lifetime. The procedure permanently reshapes the cornea to treat conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Less than 3% of LASIK patients will ever need a second procedure to enhance their vision.
LASIK surgery does not prevent the development of ocular disease such as cataracts later in life. Cataracts can be removed and vision can be corrected even after LASIK treatment earlier in life. Cataract development occurs with or without LASIK surgery and may require removal later in life.
LASIK surgery does not prevent the natural aging of the eye and many patients may develop conditions later in life that require reading glasses. This transition takes place gradually in your 40’s & 50’s, whether or not you have undergone LASIK surgery.
During the treatment, the laser’s advanced tracking system will continuously monitor and follow the position of your eye. The eye tracker adjusts the laser treatment to follow normal small eye movements during the procedure. Typical treatments last less than 10 seconds.
While no surgery is without risk, LASIK is widely considered safe as the chance of side affects are extremely low. Long-term complications with LASIK are rare. In fact, serious complications are rare enough that it is difficult to find data on major complications caused by LASIK.
No, the actual treatment itself is painless. You will be given plenty of anesthetic drops and a light sedative to make you completely comfortable. While some patients may experience a gritty sensation afterwards, most report minimal discomfort.

I wish I could give 10 stars! Very professional from start to finish. Very relaxed, friendly staff. If you’re considering LASIK there is only one place to go! Thanks IVG team!
The whole LASIK process from start to finish was wonderful. Any questions I had were promptly answered and put me at ease. 20/15 vision less than 24 hours after surgery has been life-changing. Best decision!
Went from 20/4000 to 20/20 in a single day of healing. The staff were very friendly, amazing, and very accommodating. They really are the best of the best.
Super friendly and helpful. Best customer service and staff I have ever met. They have this process streamlined in the most efficient way possible. You will never regret making the decision to go to Independent Vision Group.
I cannot recommend Dr Harvey and all of the IVG staff more! LASIK really wasn’t just a cosmetic decision for me. I had worn contacts for so many years that my eyes were scarred. I was extremely nervous but the staff made me feel very comfortable before and after the procedure. It was very quick and my recovery has been painless! Just 24 hours afterwards I have 20/20 vision! Highly, highly recommend this team!
I went from 20/400 to 20/20 vision. Powerful life-changing procedure. I highly recommend IVG!
In some cases, LASIK may not be the best fit for your lifestyle and clinical findings. IVG offers multiple refractive options for patients to achieve your best vision for life.
