Not a candidate for LASIK? We offer PRK, too!

At Central Arkansas LASIK, we understand that LASIK may not be the ideal solution for everyone. That’s why we offer Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) as an alternative vision correction procedure. PRK is particularly suitable for individuals with thinner corneas or those who may not be suitable candidates for LASIK. This surface laser treatment gently reshapes the cornea, providing comparable results to LASIK. If you’re exploring vision correction options, our experts will guide you in choosing the procedure that aligns best with your unique needs and eye health.

Don't let finances stop you from seeing clearly.

Investing in visual freedom is an investment in yourself, and Central Arkansas LASIK is committed to making that investment accessible. The expense of LASIK may initially seem significant, but when compared to the cumulative costs of long-term contact lens use, it becomes an economically savvy choice. We understand that financial considerations are crucial, and that’s why we offer various financing options to suit your budget. Our team is here to guide you through the financing process, making the path to clear vision a financially manageable one.
