Price Match Assurance
Cullom Eye & Laser Center understands that you want an experienced surgeon, highest quality care and the most advanced technology, all at a great value. We are so confident that we are the best choice for iLASIK, that we will match the price of any local provider using the same technology.*
*Some restrictions apply. Must show written price quote from a local provider using same technology.

You deserve a customized procedure
While traditional LASIK has been a safe and effective procedure, Custom LASIK offers patients the potential to see better than 20/20 by capturing the tiny imperfections in your vision standard measurements cannot. In fact, with the CustomVue technology at Cullom Eye & Laser Center your measurements we use for the procedure are 25x more accurate than standard measurements used for glasses and contacts. This means the opportunity for crisper, clearer vision than with your previous methods of correction.

Thanks to this increased precision, the option for a blade-free or all-laser procedure makes LASIK an option for more people. This advanced technology also allows an experienced surgeon like 
Dr. Douglas Cullom and Dr. Anthony Farah the ability to also treat patients with higher prescriptions, astigmatism or thin corneas.

Surgeon Experience

No matter how advanced LASIK technology may be, a surgeon still performs the LASIK procedure and an experienced surgeon can truly make the difference between excellent results and complications. Experienced surgeons achieve better results and can have fewer problems. For example, board-certified surgeons like Douglas Cullom, MD and Anthony Farah, MD are prepared to handle complications even before encountering them, resulting in better outcomes for our patients.

Surgeon Results
Look for a surgeon who is willing to provide documented results and doesn’t take offense at having to show them to you. Many centers do not publish their results, or group them in such a way that they can be misleading. When researching a center, ask for results and compare them carefully.

Patient Care
When choosing a center, be sure you are receiving the careful, unhurried personal attention you deserve. The experience and care of not only the doctors, but the staff as well, can improve your chances of the best possible results and a positive experience.

On-Site Laser Suite
A dedicated laser suite that houses a 100% on-site laser can improve your chances of excellent results. Constant calibration of the laser is vital for optimal safety and accuracy.

What to ask:

  • Is the laser you are using on the site permanent?
  • What are your results?
  • What are your enhancement rates?
  • What is included in my fee for LASIK
  • How many procedures has the surgeon done?
  • Does the surgeon perform any other type of surgeries?
