Nebraska Medicine is pleased to offer outpatient LASIK surgery, correcting your vision with zero bandages or stitches. It may feel like magic, but normally patients experience little to no pain, and receive their desired new vision the same day, or within 24 hours of getting the LASIK procedure.
At the Truhlsen Eye Institute, fellowship-trained eye surgeons practice bladeless LASIK surgery, which is the latest in refractive eye surgery.

- About 30 percent of patients are not good candidates for LASIK. That's why it's important to be pre-screened (for free) before the procedure.
- LASIK is usually - but not always - considered permanent. It doesn't stop the natural aging process of the eyes, so some older patients still require glasses for reading or night time driving.
- 93 percent of patients on the review site RealSelf.com say LASIK surgery is worth it.
LASIK is less expensive over the long haul than wearing glasses or contacts. Compare the costs for yourself.
