Is it Right for You?

SBK Advanced LASIK at Durrie Vision is an excellent solution for someone who is at least 18 years old with a stable vision prescription for a year. Factors that can affect candidacy are the degree of the refractive error as well as the thickness and shape of the cornea – all determined during testing.

You should also have healthy eyes with no underlying conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, or corneal diseases. If you have any of these conditions, they must be treated and stabilized before LASIK can be considered.

I have astigmatism. Can I still get SBK Advanced LASIK?

Yes! In fact, SBK Advanced LASIK is an excellent treatment for astigmatism. LASIK eliminates astigmatism by flattening or steepening the curvature of the cornea. 

What if I’m not a candidate for SBK Advanced LASIK?

While SBK Advanced LASIK is the most commonly performed vision-correction procedure at Durrie Vision, it’s not the only one that can help you see better. Advancements in vision correction mean there are new procedures, techniques and technologies leading to more options for more people. 

What are the risks of SBK Advanced LASIK?

The decision to have a vision correction procedure is a personal one. Rest assured, serious complications with SBK Advanced LASIK are extremely rare. Many of them can be reduced or eliminated through our thorough pre-op diagnostic testing.

How soon after SBK Advanced LASIK can I return to normal activities?

Good news! One of the greatest benefits of SBK Advanced LASIK is the quick recovery time. While you can expect your vision to be blurry the first few hours after the procedure, you should be able to resume work and normal activities the following day. 

Does SBK Advanced LASIK wear off?

One of the most common misconceptions about LASIK is that it wears off, but the reality is that it lasts. That’s because the eye has two lenses – the cornea on the front surface and the lens inside. LASIK permanently changes the cornea. Natural changes in the eye’s internal lens can affect near vision beginning in your 40s and technologies exist to improve vision when those changes occur. 

Get Started with a Free Consultation

Our Advanced Ocular Analysis (AOA) is the first step in determining the best vision correction procedure for you. Your eyes will be examined using the most advanced diagnostic testing and technologies available. You will then meet with one of our experienced doctors who will discuss your analysis, leaving with a comprehensive AOA report as well as our recommendations for treatment including recovery times, costs, and financing options.

“I was impressed with the amount of detailed testing they did at my initial consultation. I had a great experience the day of my LASIK procedure with all of the staff. The results are amazing for such a quick procedure!”

Melissa S

“After 25+ years of glasses and contacts, all it took was about 10 minutes of surgery to correct my vision. Everyone was friendly and easy to work with throughout the process. To anyone considering getting their vision corrected, I give my highest recommendation to Durrie Vision.”


“Walked into the office unable to see the Snellen chart, walked out after SBK seeing 20/30, which improved to 20/15 at my next day follow-up. The entire process was seamless and professional, and the results are absolutely unbelievable. Had no idea my vision could ever be this clear.”


“Quick, easy, friendly! Dr. Stahl did my SBK and I was seeing 20/15 the next morning! Amazing!”


“I had LASIK done last week and I am very pleased. I had never worn contacts and was not comfortable touching my eyes so I was nervous, but they provide Valium to ease nerves  It was easier than I expected. They say you’re in surgery for eight minutes but it didn’t even feel that long.”


“From the time that I walked into the building for my consultation until I walked out from my post-operation check-up, I was extremely impressed with the level of care. The attention to detail, the technology used to treat my astigmatism and the affordable cost, all were things that stood out.”
