John-Kenyon LASIK Center

Let’s face it – contact lenses can be a huge hassle. And glasses? Some people love wearing them but for others, there’s nothing worse. If you’ve been wearing contacts or glasses for years and dreamed of not having to rely on them, you’ve come to the right place!

The doctors at the John-Kenyon LASIK Center are nationally recognized experts in laser vision surgery – our namesake, Dr. Maurice John, was one of the first in the nation to perform LASIK and Dr. Asim Piracha is credited with performing the first all-laser LASIK surgery in the state in 2003.

We’ve helped thousands of people improve their vision, many to 20/20 or better! If you’re ready to see the difference in your vision, give us a call at 1.800.DIAL.EYE or click here today to schedule your complimentary LASIK evaluation. And if you’re still on the fence – use the calculator below to determine how much you’ll spend in a lifetime on glasses and contacts. We think it might be just the motivation you need to finally make the decision to see what you’re missing!

  • Am I a good candidate for LASIK?

    The ideal candidate for LASIK is over 18 years old, has healthy corneas and a relatively stable prescription (i.e. – the same prescription for 1 to 2 years).

  • Does LASIK hurt?

    Many patients experience little to no discomfort during or after LASIK. During your procedure, you’ll have a John-Kenyon staff member dedicated to making you feel comfortable. We will, literally, hold your hand throughout the entire process.

  • What if I'm nervous?

    We work hard to maximize your comfort throughout the entire LASIK experience.  If you find that you are nervous before the procedure, we’ll offer you an oral sedative to help you relax. A staff member will hold your hand throughout the entire procedure and the John-Kenyon team is more than happy to answer your questions at any time.

  • Will I be able to see immediately?

    Many patients can read the clock across the room immediately after LASIK. That being said, your vision the first few hours after the procedure can be cloudy. That’s why we ask that you bring a friend or family member to drive you home afterwards.

    We require that you rest with your eyes closed for six hours after surgery, but the overwhelming majority of patients wake up the next morning and are able to drive without glasses or contacts to their follow-up appointment.

    Every case is unique but you can expect to experience improved vision within the first few days.

  • Does insurance cover LASIK?

    Medical insurance does not usually cover the cost of Lasik, however we have many options for financing your Lasik procedure to help fit your budget; and many patients choose to use their Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for it using pre-tax dollars.

  • Isn't LASIK expensive?

    The upfront cost of LASIK is certainly more than a pair of glasses or an order of contact lenses but some cost comparisons show that after 10 years the costs equal out.  If you have LASIK at 28, you may not have to wear contacts ever again and only need to start wearing reading glasses like most people do in their 40’s or 50’s.

The morning after having LASIK at John-Kenyon, Catie told Dr. Piracha she should have had the procedure a long time ago. Not even 24 hours later, she was pointing out all the street signs on the way to her follow up appointment.
