Focus - So You Can Expand Yours!
Laser vision correction with LASIK is receiving a good deal of attention these days as a permanent solution for near or far-sightedness as well as for astigmatism. Imagine: No more glasses or contacts! Experience, knowledge, precise skill and judgment of the doctor ensures that LASIK is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort and downtime for the patient. Returning to work the next day - with vastly improved vision - is typical and results are excellent and predictable.
