Imagine opening your eyes in the morning to see clearly without the use of glasses or contact lenses. This can be possible with LASIK surgery.

Have you ever wondered if you are a good candidate for LASIK?

Murphy-Watson-Burr Eye Center offers a free consultation with Dr. Burr where he evaluates your unique prescription, corneal shape and corneal thickness to determine if LASIK is right for you. If it is determined that LASIK is for you, a pre-operative examination will be scheduled.

LASIK Surgery Steps

  • A general assessment of your refractive error will be done.
  • Dr. William E. Burr will consult with you to verify that you are in fact a candidate for LASIK surgery.
