Why Choose Virdi Eye Clinic & Laser Vision Center for your refactive surgery?

Many of you are doing extensive research into refractive surgery before making your decision whether to have this exciting procedure. Equally important as to whether this is right for you, is which surgeon and laser center is best. This is a decision not to be taken lightly and there are many factors to be considered.

Most would agree that the most important concern is getting the safest and best surgery. After all, these are your only pair of eyes and replacements are not available. At The Virdi Eye Clinic and Laser Vision Center, patient outcomes speak for themselves. Our physicians rank well above the national average for post-surgical outcomes. We would be happy to share our latest data with you.

While getting the best vision is most important, cost is something everyone considers. While there are many low cost LASIK centers, a potential candidate must look beyond cheapest rates. Eyesight is too important to cut corners. Our commitment is to the best surgery, not the cheapest. Our laser center uses only the latest technology, the best trained staff, and provides complete care from the beginning to the end and beyond. Most cut rate centers charge extra for many items and provide no long term care. Additionally, some surgeons at cut rate laser centers have no commitment to our area, so long term care of your eyes is not always assured.

At The Virdi Eye Clinic and Laser Vision Center, we do make the best LASIK affordable with discounts for certain insurances, and payment plans with low monthly payments. Additionally, we accept all major credit cards. Please ask how we can help you get the finest eye surgery in the area performed by our specialized surgeons.

More About iLASIK

The Virdi Eye Clinic offers Customvue and "Basic iLasik'. Customvue is FDA approved for nearsightedness not more than –6.0 diopters with less than –3.0 diopters of astigmatism. The pupil must dilate 5mm or more in dim light to obtain sufficient data. Customvue treatment is specific to the eye under treatment. It includes information from the Wavescan System that is more individualized than what your doctor uses to program a "Basic iLasik" treatment. As no two people are the same, no two eyes with the identical refractive error, when evaluated in finer detail share the same eye irregularities. Customvue creates a highly detail map of your corrective needs, identifying each tiny imperfection or higher order aberrations. The variable spot scanning allows for a larger treatment area, the ability to custom treat the small irregularities (higher order aberrations), giving the doctor greater flexibility to develop a more individualized corrective procedure.

Basic iLasik is for patients that are above the –6.0 diopter for nearsightedness / -3.0 diopter for astigmatism; for farsighted patients (+0.5 to +5.0 diopters) with up to +3.0 diopters of refractive astigmatism; for mixed astigmatism patients (_<6.0 diopters of astigmatism).

  • - Have healthy eye free from eye disease or corneal abnormalities
  • - Have nearsightedness up to-12.0 diopters with or without refractive astigmatism between 0.5 and 5.0 diopters
  • - Have farsightedness up to +0.5 to +5.0 diopters with or without refractive astigmatism up to +3.0 diopters for iLASIK treatment
  • - Have mixed astigmatism up to 6.0 diopters for iLASIK treatment
  • - Be able to lie flat without difficulty
  • - Be able to tolerate local or topical anesthesia
  • - Be able to keep your eye accurately focused on the fixation light for the entire Laser surgical procedure
