COVID 19 Safety Protocols
We are here for our patients and the community in this time of need. Eye LASIK Austin is committed to continuing to provide the best care possible for our patients, and this includes creating a safe environment. We have implemented multiple layers of safety precautions, starting even before patients arrive at our office. Screening for symptoms and sick contacts starts with our phone team in preparation for your appointment, and is repeated with the addition of a temperature check on greeting at our office. Masks are another layer of safety and are aimed at prevention of asymptomatic spread. Every patient and staff member in our office wears a mask. The only thing we ask is if you are not feeling well or have been in contact with someone who is sick, please stay home. We will be here to care for you and your vision when you are feeling better.
Eye LASIK Austin is at the forefront of today’s LASIK revolution with a highly qualified team of eye professionals, knowledgeable staff and leading edge vision technology. Eye LASIK is a cooperative facility designed to ensure patients the absolute highest quality of care through each step of a surgical procedure.
At Eye LASIK Austin, we work with you to provide careful evaluation and diagnosis, create a comfortable setting for your procedure and sustain you with a healthy aftercare program. We are committed to finding the right answer for our patients, even if the answer is not having LASIK. We provide honest pre-procedural evaluations to determine if laser vision correction is the right choice for you.
Eye LASIK has become Central Texas’s leading laser center, with more Central Texas eye care professionals utilizing Eye LASIK Austin than any other facility in this area. At Eye LASIK, your eyes are more important than our numbers. Your satisfaction is our only measure of success. We utilize the most technologically advanced surgical equipment available today combined with Austin’s leading and most experienced surgeons and over 215 area optometrists.
