King LASIK and Your Laser Vision Correction
Dr. King specializes in Blade-Free LASIK.
Dr. King and the team at King LASIK perform iLASIK, a NASA-approved procedure that promotes comfort, precision and patient safety. Also called all-laser LASIK, this procedure greatly reduces the risks often associated with the surgical methods used in conventional LASIK. The iLASIK technique incorporates the bladeless IntraLase laser with wavefront-guided measurement techniques and excimer laser technology to produce highly individualized Custom LASIK treatments.
Dr. King and his staff strongly believe that a tailored vision correction approach is instrumental to ensuring the best outcome for each patient. Their unsurpassed surgical record and experience has earned them a reputation for helping LASIK Kennewick patients and those throughout the Pacific Northwest gain independence from glasses and contact lenses.
Cataract Surgery and Presbyopia Correction at King LASIK
The surgeons at King LASIK perform other procedures in addition to LASIK to help their patients with specific eye care needs. Two popular procedures they offer are cataract surgery and presbyopia correction. Cataract surgery is performed using the “no-stitch” technique and premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) to help patients achieve clearer vision. IOLs, including Crystalens and AcrySof ReSTOR, can be used for cataract surgery as well as the treatment of presbyopia, the age-related loss of near vision focusing ability.
To learn more about the King LASIK team and the different vision correction procedures they offer, please contact the Kennewick location at (877) 722-7049.
What Do Patients Say About King LASIK?
"King LASIK is the place to go for LASIK. King LASIK uses NASA and Naval Aviator approved Blade-FREE Intralase LASIK. What if you move your eye? Well, they offer a tracking system on their lasers that automatically shuts off if your eye is off track. Trust your eyes to King LASIK." Adam Carolla, Radio and TV Personality
"I've been wearing glasses and contacts for 15 years. My poor vision was very frustrating and I was tired of relying on contacts and glasses. Dr. King and the staff at King LASIK made me feel relaxed and confident about the LASIK procedure. It was much easier than I expected! The day after, I had clear 20/15 vision and no pain. Recovery is so quick! The only thing I regret...is that I didn't do it SOONER." Gillian Foote, Radio Personality
"Having clear eye sight is amazing to me. I see better now than I did with contacts. I always had dry eyes and was uncomfortable with contacts in and I didn't like the look or feel of glasses. I am excited about how my upcoming season will go with ‘new eyes.' I wish I had done this years ago. My wife had it done a month before and loved it, so when I came in for my free consultation, I was sold." Dan Dickau, NBA Player
"It's amazing how a few minutes completely changed my life! My fear was that my profession in dermatology is very visually oriented and after talking with Dr. King at King LASIK, I was educated about the technology that LASIK was possible for my vision. Clear vision is priceless and that's why I chose Dr. King to perform LASIK for me." Stephanie Traut, Dermatologist
