What is LASIKPlus?

LASIKPlus is a provider of safe and effective LASIK and PRK treatments.4

These are two popular laser eye surgeries that correct poor vision and help reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses later.

LASIK/PRK can fix several refractive errors, including:

LASIKPlus surgeons have performed over two million refractive surgeries. At LASIKPlus, more than 95% of people who get the procedure are pleased with the results.6 Most people who get LASIK achieve 20/20 vision, but 20/25 vision or better is possible.3,6 

What Procedures Does LASIKPlus Offer?

LASIKPlus offers both LASIK and PRK surgeries.

Both surgeries are laser eye procedures that improve your vision. Talk to your doctor about which option is the best and safest for you.

LASIK Surgery

LASIK is the most common form of laser eye surgery.3 The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes for both eyes. Here’s what to expect from LASIK eye surgery

  1. Your eye surgeon will do an exam before the procedure. This entails checking the shape and thickness of your cornea and taking eye measurements.
  2. You’ll then receive special eyedrops to numb your eye on the day of surgery.
  3. The eye surgeon will use a femtosecond laser to cut a thin flap in your cornea. They will leave a hinge at one end of the flap and fold it back to reveal your cornea.
  4. The laser is used to reshape your cornea to focus light on your retina properly. Then, your surgeon will replace the flap. It will heal on its own within a few days after the procedure.

At LASIKPlus, the surgeons perform 100% bladeless surgeries, known as LASIK™, IntraLASIK™, or all-laser LASIK.4

PRK Surgery

PRK is similar to LASIK and takes 15 to 20 minutes for both eyes. The major difference is how the cornea is reshaped with the laser.

Here’s what to expect from PRK laser vision correction surgery:

  1. Like LASIK, you will need an eye exam before the procedure.
  2. Your eyes will be numbed with special drops, so you feel no pain.
  3. Your surgeon will remove a thin layer of tissue from the surface of your eye (epithelium). This exposes your cornea without the need to cut a flap.
  4. Your surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape your cornea.
  5. They will place a clear contact bandage on your eye while it heals.

There is no corneal flap created during PRK. This procedure may be more suitable for people with thin corneas.

What Does LASIK Surgery Feel Like?

You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience severe pain after your LASIK surgery. While some discomfort is expected, you should not be in agony after laser vision correction treatment.

Pros and Cons of LASIK

LASIK surgery has pros and cons, as with any kind of treatment. You should talk with your eye doctor and LASIK surgeon about refractive surgery and other customized treatment options.


  • Painless. LASIK surgery is generally not painful because it is minimally invasive. However, you may feel some itching, burning, and irritation after surgery.2
  • Permanent vision correction. Laser vision correction is meant to last forever.3 LASIK reduces the need to wear contact lenses and/or glasses.
  • Minimally invasive procedure. Laser vision correction at LASIKPlus is completely blade-free. This means there is little to no downtime for recovery.
  • Quick procedure. LASIK and PRK vision correction procedures take less than 20 minutes.
  • Excellent results. For the majority of people, LASIK surgery can be life-changing. 


  • Side effects. There are some side effects of LASIK surgery. For example, dry eyes and temporary vision issues are common. You may also see halos.6
  • High one-time cost. LASIK surgery can be expensive, especially without insurance. You can also check LASIKPlus’s list of participating health providers with vision plans here.
  • Not everyone is a safe candidate. You may not be the best candidate for LASIK.1
  • The potential need for additional vision correction. Your vision may fluctuate for the first few months following surgery. In rare cases, LASIK does not correct vision 100%.6
