LASIK / PRK Laser Vision Correction at Hollingshead Eye Center
LASIK and PRK are similar procedures designed to restore clarity and reduce dependence on glasses for nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic patients. With such a tremendous amount of laser vision correction information available, it can be overwhelming when you begin to research it by yourself. At Hollingshead Eye Center, our job is to make achieving your best vision easy and comfortable from start to finish.

State-of-the-art Laser Suite
While our surgeons perform many advanced procedures within the Hollingshead eye surgery center, they perform LASIK, PRK, and other same-day laser vision correction procedures within our state-of-the-art Laser Suite.
This specialized Laser Suite is equipped with the latest laser vision correction technology (WaveLight laser system) and features an air-, temperature-, and humidity-controlled environment with lighting optimal for performing laser procedures. The Laser Suite's unique design combined with the credentials, experience, and training of our surgeons and staff allow us to provide the best possible patient outcomes and comfort.
Who should perform YOUR LASIK?
As make your decision, consider two important things:
Does my surgeon use the latest laser technology?
At Hollingshead Eye Center, we embrace the superiority of "all-laser," bladeless LASIK, in which our surgeons use the latest laser technology to perform every step of the LASIK procedure. Some eye surgeons still use a microkeratome (a bladed mechanical instrument) to perform the first step of the procedure. However, clinical studies confirm that "all-laser" LASIK provides better safety, precision, and results.
How experienced is my LASIK/PRK surgeon?
With one of the longest track records of any LASIK surgeon in southwest Idaho, our team has helped tens of thousands achieve clearer vision with more freedom from glasses.
Schedule a LASIK Consultation
Begin your decision-making process by taking the LASIK / PRK Quiz, then calling or filling out the online form to request your FREE* LASIK/PRK consultation at Hollingshead Eye Center. After evaluating the results of your tests, Dr. Mark Hollingshead or Dr. Ryan Barrett will meet with you to discuss if and how much you can expect to benefit from this state-of-the-art vision correction technology. It won’t cost you anything to find out and to get answers to all of your questions.
* Due to the additional health conditions that frequently present in patients over 55 years of age (such as cataracts), patients over 55 must have a comprehensive dilated exam before we can determine if laser vision correction is the best treatment.
