When it comes to laser eye surgery, the doctors at Lakeland Family Eyecare are seasoned veterans.

You can expect multiple visits with our Optometrist following your surgery date. These visits will include medical evaluations and management of your vision and eye healing. We will also assess any additional needs you may require, such as reading glasses, sunglasses, or enhancement laser procedures.
