LASIK Opportunity

The UW Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences is offering a wonderful opportunity to consider LASIK (Laser Refractive Surgery) at nearly half-price. The surgery will be performed by one of the senior ophthalmology residents (PGY-4) in the coming year (exact date of surgery to be determined). Dr. Sarah Nehls, one of our faculty attending physicians with specialty training in cornea and refractive surgery, will directly supervise the entire procedure. The preoperative and postoperative care will also be under the direct supervision of Dr. Nehls.

The cost of the surgery, should you be a candidate for LASIK eye surgery, is normally $2,125 per eye. If you elect to have a senior ophthalmology resident perform the procedure, the cost will be discounted to $1,075 per eye. Both eyes are routinely treated, so this would represent a total cost savings of $2,100. Although insurance plans do not cover LASIK, it is an itemized tax deduction and a qualified Flexible Spending Plan expense (FLEX/section-125 plan).

To determine if you are a candidate for refractive surgery, please call the UW Health Ophthalmology Clinic at Deming Way at 608-824-3932.
A screening will be held Saturday, January 21, 2023.
For any questions, please email Amanda Peterson.
