What is


LASIK is a type of laser eye surgery that aims to decrease dependence on visual aids like glasses or contact lenses. By using lasers to reshape your cornea, LASIK can correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. LASIK is one of the most popular refractive procedures and can allow you to experience clearer vision and greater visual freedom.

How Does

LASIK surgery works by reshaping the clear outer layer of the eye called the cornea. By reshaping the cornea, light can be better focused on the retina resulting in sharper vision. Both eyes can be treated during the same procedure, which takes around ten minutes per eye. LASIK is done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will get to go home the same day.

How Do I Know if LASIK is Right For Me?

There are many factors that need to be considered when determining whether LASIK is right for you. The eye doctors at Pacific ClearVision Institute will have an open conversation with you about your vision goals to ensure LASIK is the best solution for your individual needs.

In general, most people with a refractive error are good candidates for LASIK surgery. However, you must:

Be at least 18 years old

Be in good health

Have stable glasses or contact lens prescription

Have a sufficiently thick cornea

During your appointment, your LASIK surgeon will assess all of these requirements before determining your candidacy.

Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Bala Ambati

At a very early age, Dr. Ambati gained respect and admiration for those who work in the medical profession. Having spent months in a hospital at a young age, he experienced the compassion, dedication, and caring of skilled doctors and nurses. As he grew older the experience stayed with him. So when it came time to choose a career path, medicine was a logical choice.

Dr. Ambati earned his MD from Mount Sinai School of Medicine at the age of 17, gaining the title of the world’s youngest doctor, and then began his remarkable career of compassionate medical care. Dr. Ambati has performed thousands of cataract surgeries, LASIK surgeries, and other vision correction procedures. Recently, Dr. Ambati was cited in 2015 as the #1 eye surgeon in the Top 40 under 40 global competition and made the Top 100 Power List of Ophthalmology by The Ophthalmologist magazine.

“Went to Pacific ClearVision for Lasik after being referred by my eye doctor in Roseburg. Dr. Ambati was such a pleasure, explained the entire procedure and answered any questions I had. He also offered to do my follow up appointments in Roseburg which saved me some travel time. Procedure was incredibly fast and fairly painless and I’m thrilled with my results! Could not recommend Dr. Ambati enough!”

– Taylor
