LASIK eye surgery is a powerful way to improve your visual clarity — and your quality of life.
At Parkhurst NuVision, our expert LASIK San Antonio 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 available 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 eye prescriptions such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Parkhurst NuVision uses modern LASIK technology with incredible precision of LASIK for a comfortable LASIK procedure with minimal downtime. When it comes to the surgery itself, LASIK just lasts a few seconds per eye. Most people are able to wake up and see the next day, and are able to work, play with the family, and have a normal day within the first several 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 expanded. LASIK Plus the family of other LASIK-like procedures now have the ability to correct higher degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This means 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
- A stable vision prescription
- Healthy eyes that are free from 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 to determine whether LASIK eye surgery is right for you. If LASIK itself isn’t a great fit, you may still be eligible for life-changing vision correction surgeries we specialize in, such PRK, SMILE-LASIK, Visian ICL and/or laser lens treatment.
The Lifelong Benefits of LASIK Surgery
With Modern LASIK surgery, you’ll likely be able to reduce or completely eliminate your dependency on glasses and contact lenses for most daily activities. 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 dependence on corrective eyewear.
Many people are shocked to find out how much money LASIK can save them! What the average person spends on glasses, contacts, accessories, cleaning supplies, and contact lens solutions 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.

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).
