Pacific Eye Institute is proud to partner with Inland Eye Institute to offer our patients the best opportunity to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses or contacts through blade-free LASIK vision correction. We have teamed up with Dr. Christopher Blanton, a fellowship-trained cornea specialist who has performed over 35,000 refractive procedures. Please call (909) 937-9230 to schedule a free LASIK Consultation with Dr. Blanton.
During this popular refractive procedure, the cornea of your eye is reshaped so light entering your eyes can land more directly on your retina (the back of your eye). There are two steps of LASIK:
1. Creation of a corneal flap to allow access to your underlying corneal tissue. This is performed using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create a precise, smooth flap in the safest manner possible.
2. Corneal reshaping using Wavefront VISX CustomVue technology. Only a miniscule amount of corneal tissue is gently removed to create the ideal shape for your unique eyes. The process is based on a 3D Wavefront map that has been created of your eyes. Vision results using this technology are often superior to traditional methods of LASIK.
Dr. Blanton, has invested in these advanced LASIK technologies (IntraLase and Wavefront VISX CustomVue) because he is committed to providing the very best vision results possible for his patients. These blade-free technologies make LASIK safer, more precise and more consistent. They also give him the capibility to treat a wider range of refractive errors. In fact, over 98% of Dr. Blanton’s nearsighted patients achieve 20/20 vision or better.
A complete medical and eye history will be gathered at the time of your consultation. We will review any health and medical conditions you have as well as make note of allergies or medications you are taking. We’ll also discuss your ocular health and status, including your vision correction history. You will meet with Dr. Blanton and have a full eye exam. Expect to spend approximately 1 hour for the consultation.
During the consultation we will answer all of your questions and concerns about LASIK. We can also discuss LASIK financing options to make this potentially life-changing procedure affordable.
LASIK financing with 0% interest financing for up to 24 months is available through CareCredit®. If you qualify, this program allows you to have your LASIK procedure now and pay for the balance with low monthly payments. Longer term low-interest financing options are also available.
LASIK is also approved for Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans (and other similar plans) that allow you to allocate a portion of your pre-tax income for medical procedures not covered by insurance. This is a great way to save on the overall cost of your procedure.
Call (909) 937-9230 to learn more about LASIK financing and using FSAs for LASIK.
