Imagine Life Without Glasses or Contact Lenses
Poor vision can greatly affect one’s quality of life. Everything from watching television to driving, playing sports to sightseeing depends on good vision. While glasses and contacts have long provided a solution, both can be inconvenient to wear. Thankfully, LASIK vision correction is here, which allows patients to reduce or eliminate their need for glasses and contact lenses by using advance laser technology. LASIK Eye Surgery can be Life Changing!
LASIK, which is an acronym for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a laser eye procedure used to correct vision in patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. The procedure is performed by reshaping the cornea (the clear front part of the eye) to improve vision. The first laser for eye surgery was approved for use in 1996 and major advancements have been made ever since.
NASA And Military Approved!
Today, LASIK is an All-Laser bladeless procedure that only requires a few minutes to complete. LASIK is so safe and so precise that NASA has approved it for its astronauts and the military has improved it for our U.S. pilots. The majority of patients that undergo the LASIK procedure today have 20/20 or better vision and many have improved night vision. At Sweeney Eye Associates, we use the latest advancements in LASIK technology that can take your vision beyond glasses, beyond contacts, possibly even beyond 20/20!* *Results May Vary.
What Happens During LASIK Eye Surgery?
The LASIK procedure is incredibly fast, taking only around 10 minutes to complete and only eye numbing drops are used during the procedure. LASIK is a two-step process involving two state-of-the-art lasers.
First, if you have not already done so, you will need to sign a statement of informed consent which says that you have had the opportunity to ask questions, that they have been answered, that the risks, benefits and possible complications of your treatment have been reviewed and discussed with you, that you have considered alternatives such as glasses and contact lenses and that after considering all of this information you have made the decision to proceed. Before signing the informed consent, make sure to ask any final questions and have the answers that you need. Next, a staff member will begin putting a series of eye drops in your eyes.
You will remain awake for the entire LASIK eye surgery procedure. During LASIK, a bladeless femtosecond laser will be used to create a thin cellophane flap from the surface of the cornea. The flap is then lifted to expose the deeper layer of cornea to be treated. This corneal flap stays attached to the rest of the cornea on one side. The laser is then positioned into place, and delivers a programmed number of pulses of ultraviolet light onto the newly exposed part of the cornea. Each pulse of the laser removes a microscopic layer of cornea.
After LASIK surgery is complete, the corneal flap is put back in place. This flap will naturally adhere to the treated cornea, eliminating the need for sutures. Pressure from the eyelid and other factors will hold the flap in place as it heals, minimizing discomfort.

The Cost of LASIK Eye Surgery in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Many advertisements that promise low costs per eye for LASIK surgery often have hidden fees buried behind those low offers or are a huge bait and switch operation. Before you get your surgery, make sure you’re quoted a fixed price so you’re not surprised by price fluctuations based on the surgeon, post opts care or your specific prescription. If you can’t get a fixed quote, find a new LASIK provider. Click here to fill out the form to get the LASIK pricing at Sweeney Eye Associates.
What Affects LASIK Cost? — Experience Really Matters
You are in super safe hands with Dr. Sweeney and Dr. Venincasa. Both of these Texas LASIK eye surgeons are top level ophthalmologists that are board certified. Dr. Venincasa was recognized with awards from NextGen 30 Under 30, Journal Record’s Achievers Under 40 and 405 Magazine Top Doctor. Dr. Sweeney has done over 35,000 eye surgeries with excellent outcomes. The experience and expertise of LASIK surgeons play a crucial role in the surgical outcome and thus is reflected in the cost. At Sweeney Eye Associates we never prioritize cost over safety.
What happens before and after LASIK? — LASIK Technology
Because there is extensive per-operative testing that needs to be done to determine if someone is a candidate for LASIK, part of this time is part of the cost. Additionally, the LASIK technology itself that is used for the pre-operative work is not always the same from practice to practice. The dedication to the best technology as part of our practice ethos is present from the time you have a pre-operative evaluation to surgery and even into the postoperative phases. Prior to performing laser treatment, the advanced iDesign technology captures over 1,200 measurements of each eye, creating a map of the individual characteristics of your visual system. The data is then used to personalize the laser treatment to your needs.
