LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is a laser vision correction procedure that uses a special ultraviolet laser called an excimer laser to correct a person’s vision. This particular method of laser eye surgery reshapes the cornea, the clear front “window” of the eye, so that light focuses precisely on the back portion of the eye called the retina. LASIK is used as a vision correction procedure for refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
When it comes to LASIK eye surgery, experience matters. The LASIK doctors of Price Vision Group in Indianapolis have performed laser vision correction procedures longer than any other laser eye center in Indiana. Dr. Francis Price, Jr., of Price Vision Group, is proud to be the first eye surgeon in Indiana to perform laser vision correction back in 1991 and is considered to be one of the best LASIK doctors in the world. Dr. Price was also the first laser eye surgeon in Indiana to upgrade to blade-less, all-laser LASIK eye surgery in 2003. Both Dr. Price and Dr. Matthew Feng continue to be at the forefront of new technology by being the first LASIK eye surgeons in the state of Indiana to perform topography-guided custom LASIK with CONTOURA® Vision in 2016. Price Vision Group was responsible in helping write the guidelines on LASIK for the American Academy of Ophthalmology and our LASIK doctors are routinely referred high difficulty surgery cases based on our extensive experience and expertise. Dr. Francis Price, Jr. and Dr. Matthew Feng have lectured all over the world about advancements in LASIK technology and patient outcomes.
The board-certified LASIK surgeons at Price Vision Group are two of the world’s leading authorities on ophthalmology. Both Dr. Francis Price, Jr. and Dr. Matthew Feng are fellowship-trained cornea specialists that have extensive, specialized training focused on the cornea and frontal structures of the eye so they have a better understanding of the nuisances of your eye and how it responds to treatments. Both doctors have combined to train over 600 doctors from 35 different countries on advanced surgical techniques.
Price Vision Group has invested in the most advanced FDA-approved LASIK technology to ensure the safest, most precise laser vision correction procedures to provide excellent visual outcomes. The LASIK surgeons at Price Vision Group perform their laser eye procedures with the WaveLight® Refractive Suite that includes the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser (currently the fastest flap creation laser platform in the U.S.1,2) in combination with the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser (one of the fastest excimer laser platforms in the world). At the moment, the WaveLight® Refractive Suite boasts the fastest total refractive procedure in the U.S.1
LASIK is a wonderful option if you’re seeking to have clear vision without glasses or contact lenses. To determine if you are a candidate for LASIK, our team of expert LASIK technicians and doctors will perform a few simple eye assessments to evaluate and determine your candidacy for LASIK. They will check on measurements such as your eye prescription, corneal thickness, and overall health of your eyes. If it is determined that you are not a candidate for LASIK, we will discuss other great options such as PRK, RLE, or ICL. If the screening indicates that LASIK would be beneficial, a comprehensive eye exam will be the next step. You can schedule your free LASIK screening here.
*If you are pregnant and/or nursing, you need to wait 3 months after pregnancy/nursing to be considered a candidate.
Once you’ve chosen to proceed, one of our doctors will perform an advance ocular assessment that includes in-depth corneal measurements to create a complete vision profile. Careful calculations are made and a personalized vision treatment plan is developed for you.
When is comes to the cost of LASIK eye surgery with Price Vision Group, there are several factors that affect the pricing. Some factors include the amount of laser vision correction needed based on your prescription, level of astigmatism correction needed, as well as the laser technology. Typically, our patients will see a price range of $1,690 to $2,290 per eye. There is an additional charge for our latest in LASIK technology, CONTOURA® Vision LASIK.
On the day of the procedure, you will be instructed to arrive wearing comfortable clothing and with a person to drive you home. Upon completion of the procedure, you will be advised to rest for a few hours so your eye(s) can properly begin the healing process.
LASIK with Price Vision Group takes about 15 minutes to complete and a majority of our patients achieve immediate results. Patients can typically resume normal activities the very next day. The video below is a time-lapse of a complete LASIK procedure.

A number of our patients have said having LASIK is one of the best decisions they have ever made, and the results of a recent 1,800 person 3-year longitudinal study we led help show why.
Having LASIK means something different for each unique patient. For some patients, it means freedom from the hassle of dealing with contacts and glasses, especially since many activities, such as swimming, do not work well with either glasses or contacts. For other patients with high amounts of astigmatism who have to repeatedly buy expensive contacts, it means a huge lifetime monetary savings. For many others, it’s just a way to help them look and see their best.
