Vision correction that fits you.
If you’re wondering “What is LASIK?” we’re here to help you out. Commonly referred to as laser eye surgery LASIK’s official medical name is laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis. LASIK is refractive surgery to correct vision problems like myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. This surgery uses lasers for extremely precise removal of your corneal tissue. In doing so, we reshape your cornea, allowing your eye to focus better.
The first step to improved vision is a consultation completed by a LASIK surgeon. During the consultation we can help you identify which vision issues you need and/or want to correct. This will be based on how you use your vision personally and professionally. In fact, you may not know the answer until you begin to understand what a LASIK procedure can actually accomplish for you.
It’s difficult for me to see upcoming road signs while driving, recognize people far away, or even see my alarm clock. I basically wear my contacts or glasses all of the time.
Distance & Reading
I used to only have trouble with distance vision. Now I can’t read my phone, a restaurant menu, and I am juggling contacts, glasses, reading glasses, bifocals, progressives, etc. Basically I can’t see anything up close or far away.
I never needed glasses before and now I have multiple pairs of reading glasses at home, in the office, basically everywhere! I need to put on glasses when there are handouts at work, when I read a book, even when I eat my dinner.

At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, Dr. Mozayeni selects the most sophisticated FDA-approved diagnostic equipment and lasers. He is committed to this because that is what it takes to provide the safest, most predictable long-lasting results for his patients. These decisions are not made quickly. It is through a meticulous process spent analyzing the results of FDA-approved lasers and observing other doctors using the LASIK lasers in other practices around the country. Since opening Providence Eye in 2003 Dr. Mozayeni has upgraded his lasers 5 times! Today our LASIK suite consists of sister lasers: the WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond Laser and the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser. Dr. Mozayeni has carefully selected these specific lasers because, most importantly, they produce optimal results across a wide range of vision correction needs. Additionally, these lasers provide a more comfortable LASIK surgery with fewer and less severe side effects for the patient. LASIK results can vary between surgeons, even if the same exact technology is used. At Providence Eye, we spend a great deal of time collecting data about a patient’s eyes, corneas and vision. Dr. Mozayeni then analyzes and uses this information to program the lasers for each specific patient before their LASIK procedure.
