River Forest, IL | LASIK Surgery Technology | Kirk Eye Center
Kent Kirk, MD: LASIK surgery has evolved over time. I don't feel there's any substitute for experience, and I've been doing the procedure for over 15 years, now. What we've seen, in the most recent years, is we are getting phenomenal results with our LASIK surgery. We have the majority of people seeing better than 20/20. So, my goal is to give people better vision than they have been experiencing with their glasses or contacts. I also feel that while any surgical procedure carries risks, and it's important to discuss those risks with your surgeon before undergoing any procedure, I feel that laser vision correction can be a safer procedure, and a safer improvement in vision over a lifetime compared to the use of contact lenses.
