According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, 99% of LASIK patients attain vision better than 20/40, with 90% achieving 20/20 vision. With a patient satisfaction rate of 96%, LASIK is one of the most highly rated elective medical procedures today. Pacific ClearVision Institute now makes this treatment more accessible for patients in and around Eugene.

LASIK surgery, as PCVI explains, is a minimally invasive, painless procedure that involves reshaping the cornea (the transparent thin layer in front of the eye) using lasers to improve its focal power. The entire procedure is performed in just 25 minutes and is regarded as a viable alternative for photorefractive keratectomy.

Post-operation recovery is fast with minimal downsides, with most patients noticing a significant improvement in their vision within six hours; after 24 hours, the eyes are approximately 80% to 85% healed.

Despite its high success rates, LASIK surgery may not be the right option for everyone. As such, the ophthalmologists conduct extensive pre-operation examinations to determine the patient's suitability for the treatment. This may include dry eye evaluation, advanced corneal imaging, a slit-lamp exam, and other diagnostic tests.

The team of eye doctors at Pacific ClearVision Institute has performed over 20,000 LASIK operations to date.

"I went to Pacific ClearVision Institute for LASIK after being referred by my eye doctor," said a satisfied patient. "They were such a pleasure to deal with, from explaining the procedure and answering questions I had to the surgery itself. They also offered to do my follow-up appointments at my eye doctor's office, which saved me from having to travel. I'm thrilled with my results and could not recommend them enough."
