LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) is laser-assisted surgery for correcting refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Choosing co-management with Golden Vision Optometry means we guide you through every step of the process, from a preliminary evaluation to aftercare.
Most patients can achieve complete freedom from glasses or contact lenses. Some patients with severe vision issues, such as high astigmatism, can still achieve improved vision and decrease their reliance on prescription lenses.

A LASIK consultation with Golden Vision Optometry allows patients to have a knowledgeable partner guide them through the process and aftercare. There are many benefits to LASIK, but not all procedures or surgeons are exactly alike.
Does choosing a more expensive surgery offer more advantages than an affordable procedure? How can you tell if one surgeon is more experienced than another?
Our team at Golden Vision Optometry is familiar with the California eye care industry. With co-management, we’re your trusted, accountable assistant. We can provide information about different surgeons, compare prices, and make the process as convenient as possible.
A LASIK procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. During the procedure, patients are instructed to focus on a target light to position the eye. The procedure begins when an eye surgeon (ophthalmologist) uses a laser to cut a thin flap in the cornea tissue. Then, the tissue is folded back, allowing access to the cornea tissue underneath.
The ophthalmologist uses a computer-guided laser to remove a minimal amount of tissue to reshape the cornea. Finally, the ophthalmologist re-positions the flap and smoothes the edges. The flap heals in place, typically reattaching naturally within 2–3 minutes.
Who Is a Good Candidate for LASIK?
At Golden Vision Optometry, we perform a preliminary assessment to determine if a patient is a candidate for LASIK. Your eye doctor will evaluate eye health, confirm your refractive error, and take cornea measurements. To create a corneal flap, LASIK a patient must meet requirements for corneal thickness.
After evaluating your eyes, your eye doctor will also discuss your lifestyle and vision goals. Generally, a good candidate for LASIK will meet the following conditions:
- At least 18 years old
- Corneas are healthy
- Overall eye health is good
- Stable prescription
