Vision Correction at Pacific Northwest Eye Associates

Vision Correction Surgery

Laser vision correction is the most popular form of refractive surgery for decreasing dependence on eyeglasses or contact lenses. If LASIK surgery in Tacoma is appropriate for your eyes, you will join thousands of other Pacific Northwest Eye Associates patients who have benefited from this procedure. The first step towards achieving clearer vision is to schedule a complimentary screening exam with our Refractive Surgery Coordinator, Karen King, by calling (253) 759-5500 or via email at lasik@pnweye.com. During this 30-60 minute appointment, you will be given information on the safety and efficacy of the various laser vision correction options available at Pacific Northwest Eye Associates. In addition, a series of measurements of your eyes will be taken. This data helps our laser vision correction specialists to determine which procedure is ideally suited for your individual needs.

Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for laser vision correction, you’ll be scheduled to return for a more detailed, dilated eye exam to determine the overall health of your eyes. During this appointment you’ll meet with one of our vision correction specialists, Dr. Niraj Patel or Dr. Victor Chiu, who will review the risks and benefits of the procedure and answer any questions that you may have.
