What is LASIK?

LASIK surgery (which stands for laser assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is a permanent vision correction procedure performed as an alternative to glasses or contacts. The goal of LASIK is to correct vision by reshaping the cornea. A LASIK procedure takes about 10 minutes per eye. However, the excimer laser corrects a patient’s vision in a few seconds. LASIK provides rapid healing and recovery time. Patients typically start enjoying their amazing new vision within a few hours from the procedure.

There are three main steps to a personalized LASIK treatment by Dr. Katzen
  • A detailed map of the surface of the cornea and the optical system
  • The bladeless creation of a flap by our femtosecond laser.
  • Reshaping the cornea by our excimer laser

  • At Katzen Eye Care we offer iDesign LASIK Studio technology. This means our patients will receive a completely personalized treatment designed just for them. No two eyes are the same. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, bladeless femto laser and the excimer laser are the components to a unique treatment for your vision needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is LASIK a safe procedure?
    Yes. LASIK is safer than wearing contact lenses.
    How do I schedule a consultation and long will the visit take?
    You can send us an email from this website or call us at 877-736-202. We have two offices, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, where we can accommodate you for your free evaluation. At the consultation it is determined whether the patient is a candidate for LASIK/PRK and we will answer all questions. The patient can then determine if they wish to continue to the next appointment, which typically, is the pre-operative visit. The consultation takes about an hour.
    Do you have financing?
    Yes, Katzen Eye Care offers interest free financing through Care Credit.
    Is LASIK painful?
    Many patients report feeling no pain with their LASIK surgery. Anesthetic drops are used to fully numb the eye before and during the procedure. You may feel slight pressure around your eyes for a few seconds. Most patients are quite comfortable after taking a short nap after their surgery.
    Is the surgery done at all locations?
    The pre-operative visit and procedure are done at our Boynton Beach location only.
    Will my insurance cover for LASIK?
    LASIK is an elective procedure and therefore not covered by insurances. However, some insurances offer a discount and we will gladly honor the established discounts.
    What vision result can I expect?
    LASIK can deliver as good a vision as your eye can see. Our results show 99% of our patients are happy with their sight and do not need to wear glasses or contacts after their vision correction procedure. Expectations will be fully discussed between the patient and Dr. Katzen.
