LASIK Eye Surgery in San Antonio, TX
LASIK eye surgery is a powerful way to improve your visual clarity — and your quality of life.
Parkhurst NuVision, our expert eye surgery team has performed thousands of successful LASIK procedures using some of the most advanced technology in the industry.
Throughout the process of LASIK, we’re proud to treat you not only as our patient, but as a valued guest. We’ll go above and beyond to ensure your comfort and outcomes every step of the way.
What is LASIK Surgery?
LASIK, or “Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis,” is perhaps the most widely recognized laser eye surgery on the market today. This simple outpatient procedure involves using a laser to gently reshape the cornea — the clear, front of your eye, which helps focus your vision — to correct common vision errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Parkhurst NuVision uses the latest LASIK technology that has increased the precision of LASIK and reduced the risk of potential side effects for a safer, faster procedure with minimal LASIK surgery risks. When it comes to the surgery itself, LASIK lasts just a few seconds per eye, and the overall procedure generally only lasts 45 minutes. Many patients notice clearer sight within 24 hours!
Who is a Good Candidate for LASIK Surgery?
The number of people who are good candidates for LASIK has recently grown as the technology has improved. LASIK’s ability to correct higher degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism has meant that more people can benefit from LASIK eye surgery than ever before.
These are a few of the firm requirements that you must meet in order to be eligible for LASIK:
- Sufficient corneal thickness (we offer other solutions for patients with thin corneas)
- A stable vision prescription
- Healthy eyes that are free from disease, injury, or infection
The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for LASIK surgery is to come in for a consultation, where we’ll learn about your vision goals, lifestyle, and eye health history to determine whether LASIK eye surgery is right for you. If LASIK isn’t a great fit, you may still be eligible for life-changing vision correction from one of our other vision correction surgeries, including PRK, SMILE, Visian ICL, and RLE.
The Lifelong Benefits of LASIK Surgery
With LASIK surgery, you’ll be able to rely less on eyeglasses or contact lenses, or free yourself from them completely. This convenience isn’t just a priceless relief, it’s why people who rely heavily on their eyesight in demanding environments — pilots and professional athletes, for example — overwhelmingly choose laser refractive surgery over a continued reliance on corrective eyewear.
Many people are shocked to find out how much money LASIK can save them! What the average person spends on corrective eyewear, accessories, cleaning supplies, and more over the course of a lifetime is a far greater sum than a LASIK procedure. During your consultation, we’ll walk you through what you can expect to save overall from LASIK, and help you make your LASIK eye surgery as affordable as possible.

Our LASIK Technology
We take immense pride in pioneering the latest technology in everything we do, and LASIK is no exception. We perform LASIK eye surgery using blade-free Allegretto Wavefront Optimized LASIK with IntraLASE®. The wavefront analysis shows the unique aberrations in your eye, which your surgeon can use to make incredibly precise corrections. This “all-laser” LASIK procedure is safer, faster, more precise, and reduces the chances of side effects for a smoother, faster LASIK recovery time.

We offer great financing options such as ALPHAEON plans and the CareCredit credit card, and we also accept pre-tax funds set aside in Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).
