***Important information – The FDA recommends this link for more information about LASIK and its risks. This site is for information only and it cannot and should not replace the professional medical advice and a consultation with a licensed doctor.

Here is what you should know (and what we will go out of our way to educate you on) before you make your decision to have LASIK:
- Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK
- There is no guarantee that you will achieve 20/20 vision
- Vision can change over time
- LASIK, like any surgery, has risks and side effects
*Medical outcomes cannot be guaranteed. Results vary, risks and complications can occur with any medical procedure. Be sure to carefully read the informed consent document that YOUR surgeon has provided for you. 20/20 vision does NOT equal perfect vision. LASIK does NOT guarantee a person will not need eyeglasses for some visual situations, now or in the future.
Patients must be deemed a medical candidate for LASIK by the independent doctors at 20/20 Institute to qualify for the LASIK Pledge.
Full terms and conditions will be provided under separate 20/20 Institute written agreements.
Patient testimonials are the opinion of that patient about their individual experience.
