If you’re looking for a way to reduce or eliminate your dependency on glasses or contact lenses, the top eye experts at the UAMS Jones Eye Institute perform exciting, innovative laser eye surgery procedures.

Innovative refractive surgery, including LASIK eye surgery, now makes it possible to improve the eye’s natural focus safely and effectively by reshaping the surface of the cornea, resulting in clearer vision. We use all the latest equipment and technology.

  • You have eyes free from retinal problems, cataract or certain other eye diseases
  • You are not pregnant
  • You do not have severe diabetes or an autoimmune disease
  • You have the appropriate refractive error that can be helped with this procedure

Facts you might like to know:
