LASIK is a form of laser vision correction surgery and one of the most recognized procedures for eliminating an individual's need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The surgery uses excimer lasers to reshape the cornea to focus light more accurately on the retina. Our eye care surgeons at Nevada Eye Physicians perform LASIK procedures using the latest advancements in laser technology. Our surgeons are involved in all aspects of the refractive experience. They personally review and verify all pre-operative testing to ensure accuracy and customize the treatment that is right for you. Most patients who undergo LASIK surgery are able to see 20/15 (which is even better than 20/20) without needing glasses or contacts. To learn more about how to receive life-altering results with LASIK, contact one of our Nevada locations to schedule your consultation today.
At Nevada Eye Physicians, we provide wavefront-guided LASIK procedures which are a form of custom LASIK surgery that uses 3D measurements to reshape the cornea. Wavefront provides for a more specialized approach by evaluating how your eye specifically views and processes images. It is also useful to correct irregularities that may be associated with the eye's optical system. During your consultation, you can discuss with your surgeon about wavefront-guided LASIK and assess if it may be the best option for your specific needs.
"I went to see (excuse the pun) Dr. Singh for an evaluation for Lasik. He was extremely thorough, gentle and really really knolwedable. He discussed with me the risks and benefits on my case and really answered my questions (I am one of "those" patients) I am looking forward to getting my surgery on and being able to see clearly!"- S.D. / Yelp / Dec 16, 2012
"I had LASIK done by Dr. Surjeet Singh a few weeks ago. The procedure itself was super easy and short. Dr. Singh is wonderful. He truly cares about his patients and really takes his time to explain options, expectations and after care follow up. He follows you closely after the procedure. You're in great hands. His staff is super friendly and helpful. They get you in and out of appointments quickly. The day after surgery my vision was nearly perfect. It's amazing to not have to rely on glasses anymore. I had such a great experience at Nevada Eye and Ear. I would recommend Dr. Singh to all my family and friends."- K.M. / Yelp / Feb 23, 2016
"Yesterday was the day I finally gave into LASIK For everyone asking here's all the info on who I went to and how it went! (I'll start off with the final product for those who want to skip the details):Final Product: When I woke up this morning (24 Hours after the procedure). My eyes we're... well... WOW Like my eyesight was comparable to HD when I went to my post op today my Dr. confirmed that I now have 20/20 vision and it will only get better as the healing process continues! My eyesight was so bad beforehand, it's truly a blessing that I haven been able to get this corrective surgery. I cannot wait to explore the world with my new eyes Who I went to: Dr. Surjeet Singh, MD. Over the past 5 years he has successfully completed over 5,000 lasik procedures. He also came highly recommended by my friends and dentist at @bellasmileslv , @aseemthedream73 , & @ctchow34 (Who by the way are the best dentist in town, if you ever need a recommendation for that ).Where: Nevada Eye PhysiciansActual Procedure: So forewarning, I may have a biased review on this procedure because I totally missed the memo that I was supposed to administer the Valium (sedative) to myself before starting/and or getting to the office (that part is still unclear because in order to not get freaked out I wanted to hear as little as legally possible before starting it) LOL.When people say its painless it totally is. You feel a bit of pressure at some points, but nothing too drastic. If you have any type of fear of the unknown that will be heightened and may cause anxiety that only last for a few minutes (that's how long the procedure takes).He walked me through the entire thing and ensured I stayed as calm as possible (prob wouldn't of be necessary if I had the Valium ).All in all though it went well. Scary, anxiety filled, but short, quick and painless.After the Procedure: The following hours after, my sensitivity to light was immense. I administered the eye drops I was given, went to my post op after and got some more numbing cream.At that point Dr. Singh confirmed that the procedure went as planned and it looked excellent. I got my prescription for my Valium, took that, put more eye drops in, and proceeded to pass out with my protective googles Woke up the next morning and then ... the final product is listed above for anyone who missed it!"- J.D. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2017
"This review is about Dr. Surjeet Singh. I am a fellow doctor in town. So I know that all doctors are not the same. So when it came time for me to pick a doctor to do my brothers LASIK, I did extensive research. Dr. Singh had the right combination of cutting edge technology, experience and excellent training. My brother had a terrific outcome. He was able to see 20/20 at his first appointment, which was the same day as his surgery. His vision was 20/400 before the surgery. His bedside manner is very good and he took his time to answer all our questions before and after surgery. I highly recommend him to anybody in need of eye care."- C.H. / Yelp / Sep 29, 2016
"I've been wearing glasses and/or contacts for over 15 years and as a professional driver I had to constantly switch from glasses to contacts to prescription sun glasses while driving to see the road better. As most people, I was concerned about the process and what my vision would be like after surgery. Dr. Singh was great. He answered all my questions also explained the difference between LASIK and PRK and made me feel very comfortable. I decided to go with custom LASIK. Prior to surgery I had poor vision with an astigmatism. Now I have 20/15 vision and see better than I have in years. Thanks to Dr. Singh and his team for making this an enjoyable experience. I wish I had done it sooner."- G.B. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2015
Best Candidates for LASIK
Vision corrective surgery can be a life-changing experience and can be an excellent alternative to contact lenses and glasses for most patients. However, patients need to be certain they understand how the surgery works, what benefits to expect after surgery, and the potential risks of these procedures. Our surgeons will spend ample time with prospective candidates to be certain they have all the information they need to make a decision. Candidates must be over 18 with generally healthy eyes which have been stable for at least a year. Eyes must be free from issues such as diseases, corneal abnormalities, scars, and infections. Patients undergoing LASIK will need to keep their eyes steadily focused on a single point of light for two minutes. Even though our team’s modern lasers can track random eye movements, the most effective results occur from patients who can maintain a fixed stare.
What to Expect with LASIK
LASIK is an outpatient procedure that takes minutes to perform at our facility. The technology reshapes the cornea to correct how the eye focuses. As the procedure begins, drops will be applied to numb your eyes and your Nevada Eye Physicians surgeon may also provide medication to help you relax. From there, your eyelids will be gently propped open, and a device is put into place to stabilize your eye. At this point, the computer-controlled excimer laser pulses light to reshape your cornea, based on the data collected from your previous appointments. After this, your surgeon will reposition the corneal flap that will naturally stay put and start healing within hours.
After the procedure, you are released to go home. However, you will not be allowed to drive yourself. You might feel some discomfort, itching, slight burning, or watery eyes, but those symptoms are typical, temporary, and part of the healing process. You might also be provided with an antibiotic prescription to prevent infection, as well as anti-inflammatory drops for a few weeks after the procedure. Patients are advised to rest and use sunglasses for bright light protection. Vision usually normalizes within a few hours and continues improving from there. Patients will need to attend follow-up appointments at Nevada Eye Physicians so that their healing and progress can be evaluated.
