“I love Rochester community softball, but with my poor vision, it was hard for me to follow the action. After LASIK, I could see! I play with more confidence and I’m having more fun.”
— Jim Fredericks
“Once I’d had LASIK, I regretted how long I’d waited for such a beautiful gift. I’m a time-starved professional, and my energy and outlook on life have improved because I can see the world around me so much better now.”

At your first appointment, you’ll meet your surgeon, Dr. Lindahl. He will examine your eyes to diagnose the best treatment for your vision goals.
Dr. Kenneth Lindahl trained at the University of Rochester and has more than 25 years’ experience with cataract, laser, and corneal and refractive surgery. Dr. Lindahl has personally had bilateral LASIK surgery.
Our team of specialists will support you through your LASIK procedure, from your very first visit to your last post-operative check-up. Most of us have received LASIK ourselves, so we understand your questions and concerns at each phase:
Determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK in a free consultation with Dr. Lindahl. This is the most important step if you’re considering LASIK.
Once you’ve been approved for LASIK, we will set your surgery date, answer further questions, and review the results of our advanced diagnostics to map custom surgery for each eye.
When you are comfortably settled and prepared, Dr. Lindahl will start your procedure which will take just 10 minutes per eye and is virtually painless.
You’ll be ready to return home shortly after surgery, but have someone available to drive. You should experience no pain, notice better vision within 2 hours, and most patients return to work the next day.
Find the Right Treatment First
We start with the basics: Do you want to see distant objects more clearly? Do you struggle to read restaurant menus? Are you lost without your glasses or contacts? Treatment will depend on your personal goals.
Is it difficult to recognize people from far away? Or see road signs while driving? Do you use glasses or contacts all the time?
Do you have trouble with both distance and reading vision? Are you managing multiple pair of glasses or contacts to see anything?
