LASIK Surgery

Beverly Hills Vision Center

Beverly Hills Vision Center offers LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery for vision correction. LASIK is an FDA-approved procedure, in which a laser is used to reshape the cornea so that the eye does a better job of focusing images onto the retina, resulting in sharper vision.

Comprehensive Services

The Beverly Hills Vision Center, as part of Cedars-Sinai Medical Group (a trusted name in healthcare since 1985) provides the complete range of LASIK services, from the initial assessment through postoperative follow-up care.

The LASIK procedure itself takes only about 15 minutes. Because vision may be blurry afterwards, patients should have someone else drive them.
