Tax Refund? Time to Consider LASIK

Now that Uncle Sam is paying you back, put that money to great use with LASIK eye surgery.  LASIK continues to be one of the most successful operations performed today.  When you combine advanced technology and an experienced surgeon, the results are fantastic.

At Aurora LASIK, in the first four months of operation with our new WaveLight Laser, our results are much better than expected.  More than 95% of our patients are seeing 20/20.  Better yet, over 60% are seeing 20/15.  Many patients have expressed that they are seeing better than they ever had with glasses or contact lenses.

Aurora LASIK's WaveLight Refractive Suite is the only one in Washington state.

The reason our laser is so much more accurate is due to the speed and accuracy of treatment.  The WaveLight Laser treats patients in 1/5 the time of my previous VISX laser.  That means you don’t have to hold your eyes still for very long.  But, even if you do move a little bit, the laser has the fastest and most accurate eye tracker available.  It measures your eye 1050 times per second. Since the laser treats at “only” 500 times per second, the laser measures where the next pulse should be delivered 2 times per pulse.  Sounds like the fastest example of “measure twice, cut once” we’ve heard of. (But don’t worry, the procedure is completely blade-less.)

You can check out the technical specifications of the WaveLight Suite here.

Aurora LASIK (4)With this speed and accuracy, the WaveLight Suite has developed a new technology that will be rolling out in April.  Contoura is a topography-guided LASIK feature that promises to improve treatment of irregular corneas (like patients with previous LASIK/PRK irregularities).  We could not treat these conditions due to the irregularity, but now there is potential.

So, when you get your check from Uncle Sam, think about investing it in your eyes.  At Aurora LASIK, that investment could pay off with vision better than what you have with your glasses or contacts!  Give us a call today (360-459-LASIK), or contact us at

Don’t forget about our LASIK seminar on April 13, 5:30 p.m.  You’ll have a chance to win $1000 off your LASIK procedure!
