Our Approach

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic performed East Texas' first LASIK procedure in 1998, and we've performed thousands more since. Count on us as you decide if LASIK is right for you.

LASIK is a specific type of refractive surgery, and probably the most commonly known. LASIK is an acronym for LASer in situ Keratomileusis, which means: "To shape the cornea using a laser."

LASIK corrects vision by reshaping the cornea so that light rays can focus more precisely on the retina and improve vision, eliminating the need for corrective contact lenses or glasses.

In the past, LASIK was performed by making an incision on the cornea with a tiny blade, but now a method known as IntraLase makes the incision with a laser.

LASIK procedures may be performed on both myopic (near-sighted) and hyperopic (far-sighted) patients, and patients with an astigmatism.
