SMILE and LASIK Eye Surgery in Los Angeles, CA

It may seem like your only option for vision correction in Los Angeles is LASIK, but at IQ Laser Vision, it’s not! Whether you’re choosing ZEISS SMILE, considering the EVO ICL, or wondering if LASIK could be right for you, we offer many vision correction options at IQ Laser Vision.  

In fact, whether you have a friend, aunt, or another family member, you probably know somebody who corrected their vision with us. At IQ Laser Vision, we set ourselves apart from other eyecare practices by offering the most state-of-the-art laser vision correction options available.

For patients that want to achieve visual freedom but aren’t good LASIK candidates, the ZEISS SMILE procedure may be a better option. ZEISS SMILE is a minimally-invasive laser eye surgery and is even less invasive than LASIK! It’s often recommended if your corneas are too thin for LASIK, you’re an athlete and want to recover as quickly as possible, or you have dry eyes.

Whatever your reasons, vision correction procedures at IQ Laser Vision are life-changing, as is achieving visual freedom!

Who is a Good ZEISS SMILE Candidate?

You need to qualify for ZEISS SMILE before undergoing this incredible laser vision correction procedure! You may be a good ZEISS SMILE candidate if you meet the following:

  • You’re at least 18
  • You have a prescription that’s stable, meaning it hasn’t changed more than 0.50 diopters within a year
  • You’re nearsighted, have astigmatism, or both
  • You have healthy eyes, especially when it comes to your corneas
  • You’re not farsighted

Am I a Good LASIK Candidate?

The only way to find out if you qualify for LASIK is to schedule a LASIK consultation at IQ Laser Vision, but here are some of the factors to consider:

  • You’re 18 or older
  • Your eyes are healthy, meaning you don’t have any pre-existing eye conditions
  • Your prescription is stable and has remained within 0.50 diopters for the last year
  • You’re in good health and don’t have any autoimmune conditions like lupus or Sjogren’s syndrome that could make it more challenging to recover after a procedure like LASIK
  • You’re not currently pregnant or nursing
  • You have thick enough corneas, which you can only determine during a LASIK consultation

If you want to have LASIK, the only way to find out if the procedure is right for you is to have a LASIK consultation. At IQ Laser Vision, patients report over a 99% satisfaction rate after their LASIK procedure!

What Happens During a LASIK consultation?

During a LASIK consultation, your ophthalmologist at IQ Laser Vision in San Marino will ask questions about your eyes and health. They will also extensively examine your eyes.

You will be able to ask any questions you might have about the LASIK experience and how the procedure works. Your LASIK consultation is when you’ll find out if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

Even if you don’t qualify, not to worry! Instead, you might find out you’re well-suited for ZEISS SMILE, and hey, that’s something to smile about because you can still achieve your vision correction dreams.

Why Vision Correction Procedures Like LASIK and ZEISS SMILE are Life-Changing

If you’re considering the merits of a vision correction procedure, you may be wondering how improving your eyesight could change your life. The answer? These procedures can potentially change your life for the better in a million tiny ways, but here are a few that you could experience for yourself!

Increase Your Self-Confidence

Some people love how they look when they wear glasses. But others may not feel like they look like themselves when they have to wear visual aids to see.

Sometimes, making a small change like achieving visual freedom can give you more self-confidence, making a difference in other parts of your life. You may feel like you can take on the world, make a career change, or prefer the way you look in photos!

Save More Money for What Counts

Did you know that most people spend $500 every year on glasses, contact lenses, and all the accessories that go with them? Now think about what you could do with that money if you didn’t have to pay for visual aids!

You could save up for something that matters, like a down payment on your first home, or have a little more spending money to treat yourself to the finer things in life. Whatever it may be, you owe it to yourself to save your money for the things that count.

After only two years, most people even pay off LASIK, making it easy to afford. We offer payment plans that can be as low as $8 per day and interest-free financing are also available for around $249 a month.

Be More Physically Active without Boundaries

If you consider yourself physically active, you know how frustrating working out with glasses or contact lenses can be. How are you supposed to get in the zone with your glasses sliding down your face every five minutes?

Although you can wear contact lenses, they can fall out, dry out, cause irritation, or get out of place when you try to stay in the moment. The last thing you need when you’re working out is distractions.

Remove the distractions with a vision correction procedure. You’ll be able to enjoy your workouts in peace, whether it’s hiking around Los Angeles or pushing yourself during a spinning class with your friends.

What’s more, your vision will be clearer, sharper, and vastly improved over anything that your glasses or contact lenses were ever able to offer you. What athlete can turn down experiencing the best vision of their life? ZEISS SMILE, LASIK, or the EVO ICL at IQ Laser Vision can help you achieve it!

Have More Time to Yourself

Sometimes, it’s all about the little things. Do you ever wake up in the morning before putting in your contacts and wish you had a few more minutes to yourself?

You could use those minutes you spend putting in your contact lenses every morning more effectively! You could make yourself breakfast, wash dishes, cuddle with your cat, journal, meditate, or read a few pages of a book before working.

Centering yourself before starting the day is key to success. Getting even a few short minutes back can be the difference between rushing around and feeling grounded for the rest of the day.

The easiest way to add time to your morning instead of losing it is to correct your vision. Ten minutes in the morning and at night can add up quickly.

When you don’t have to worry about your vision, you can use your energy on more important things. The best part? You can do the things that matter most while seeing clearly!

When you schedule a consultation at IQ Laser Vision in Los Angeles, CA, it could all be yours. What are you waiting for?
