Lasik Eye Surgery in Des Moines

Laser Vision Correction, also known as refractive surgery, includes several elective surgical procedures that can reduce or eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. 

A laser is used to treat refractive errors of the eye: 

  • nearsightedness
  • farsightedness 
  • astigmatism

The best candidates for Laser Vision Correction are people with healthy eyes, age 18 or older who have realistic expectations.

Physicians have been performing refractive surgery since the last two decades. Refractive procedures have dramatically improved in recent years with the introduction of the excimer laser and CustomVue wavefront technology.
