LASIK / PRK Laser Vision Correction at Hollingshead Barrett 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 Barrett Eye Center, our job is to make achieving your best vision easy and comfortable from start to finish.

Reed’s LASIK Story

Who should perform YOUR LASIK?

As make your decision, consider two important things:

Does my surgeon use the latest laser technology?

At Hollingshead Barrett 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 or PRK Consultation

Achieving clear vision changes lives. The best way to determine your candidacy for laser vision correction, whether LASIK or PRK, is to take our Vision Quiz, then request a FREE* consultation with one of our physicians. Dr. Hollingshead and Dr. Barrett have the experience and skill to determine which procedure is best suited for your eyes.

* 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.
