What Is LASIK?

  • LASIK (Laser in-Situ- Keratomileusis) is a specialized technique that reshapes the surface of the cornea with an excimer laser, rapidly correcting vision problems. LASIK is outpatient surgery performed in Dr. Russ Van Norman’s outpatient LASIK eye surgery center. It lasts about 10 to 15 minutes. Shreveport Eye Specialists is at the forefront of today’s LASIK revolution. We are equipped with a highly qualified team of eye care professionals, knowledgeable staff, and the latest in corrective vision technology. Our office provides a friendly and cooperative medical facility here in Shreveport designed to deliver patients the highest quality of care through each step of their LASIK surgical procedure.

Advantages of Lasik

  • The balance in vision between your eyes will usually be restored more rapidly than in other more complicated eye surgery procedures. In many cases, patients experience near to perfect vision the very next day after our LASIK procedure is performed.

  • After your LASIK is performed there is no longer a need for contacts or glasses.

  • The increased self-confidence that many LASIK patients experience can truly be life-changing. After LASIK surgery is complete and the patient is healed, faces do not have to be partially covered up by glasses any longer. Improved eyesight can often cause people to become more outgoing and social which leads them to live happier lives.

  • Although cost is important in your deciding factor for LASIK, your decision should not be based solely on cost. Shreveport Eye Specialists accepts many forms of payment including financed payment plans through Care Credit. We do our best to ensure the price of LASIK isn’t the reason why you can’t live your life without great vision.

LASIK surgeon Dr. Russ Van Norman has over 18 years of medical experience and is an expert practitioner in using LASIK to correct the vision of thousands of Shreveport/Bossier patients. Our specialized LASIK program uses the most advanced laser vision correction techniques to provide you with the best possible results.
