How Does LASIK Work?

With certain eye conditions, the shape of the cornea (lens) of the eye doesn’t bend light correctly, causing blurred vision. LASIK uses a fine laser to reshape the cornea so that light passing through produces a clear, focused image.

LASIK is effective for improving eye conditions such as:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism

Because everyone’s vision is unique, many factors influence who will benefit from LASIK treatment. That’s why it’s essential to be evaluated by an expert ophthalmologist who can determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. Our practice offers free consultations where we can examine your vision and discuss your options, so you can decide whether to pursue treatment with no pressure.

Our Pasadena LASIK Process

Receiving LASIK treatment at our office is a three-step process. First, you’ll have a consultation with our staff to determine whether this procedure is the right choice for you. You’ll then be scheduled for LASIK treatment in our Pasadena office with one of our highly trained surgeons. Finally, our team will provide aftercare instructions and follow-up visits to ensure your recovery and results.

Here’s what you can expect at each step.


When you first visit our Pasadena vision center, you’ll be greeted by our warm and friendly staff. We will review what kind of tests we’ll run to determine if LASIK will benefit your vision and give you a clear idea of what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. Our tests are very thorough and gather detailed information to help us decide the best approach for your treatment.

The surgeon will meet with you to explain the test results and your options. If you are a candidate for treatment, we can discuss financing options as well. We want to help make treatment a viable option for everyone and offer a variety of financing choices, including CareCredit, Wells Fargo, and our own in-house plans. You’ll have a chance to meet with a counselor who can further discuss treatment and financing, answering any questions to help you make a confident decision.

Our team will send you home with a packet of information detailing everything you need to know about the surgery, including instructions on preparing for treatment and aftercare. This approach allows you to make your decision in your own time frame, so you never feel rushed. When you’re ready to commit, we’ll schedule treatment within a two-week window.

Visiting our office on treatment day is designed to help you feel at ease. We allow ample time for you to meet with our staff, ask questions, and address any anxiety you may be feeling. Once you’re completely comfortable, we can perform the procedure. The actual treatment time is quick, taking only ten minutes to treat both eyes. Afterward, we’ll provide you with eye shields and any necessary prescriptions and send you home to rest. You’ll need someone who can drive you to and from your procedure, as your eyes will need some time before you can resume regular activity.

Our office will schedule a follow-up visit with you for the day after your treatment. During this visit, we’ll review your healing progress and answer any questions. We also have a 24/7 emergency line where you can reach us if you experience discomfort or want to ask a question. Most patients will begin to notice better vision within a day of treatment.

We take your aftercare experience seriously and will schedule several follow-up visits to ensure your healing process goes as smoothly as possible. Typically, we’ll ask patients to visit us two weeks after treatment, then a month later, and a final visit in three months. If you would like more frequent visits, we’re happy to accommodate you, and we strive to be available for whatever you need at any point in your aftercare.
