It’s Your Decision, Not Ours

At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, we believe that having LASIK eye surgery is a very important and personal decision. The purpose of our LASIK consultations is not to pressure you into having LASIK surgery at our practice, but instead to educate you and answer all your questions about LASIK eye surgery.

We also believe you should be prepared for your consultation, which is why your very first phone call to us is so educational. We will cover all the basics listed above so that you don't have to ask. Then during your free LASIK consultation, you can focus on questions about your vision and your specific situation.
