Is LASIK Right For You?


If you’re over the age of 18, LASIK may be a life-changing option for you. Each year, more than 700,000 Americans undergo this procedure, which utilizes laser technology to correct conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It’s not uncommon for patients to refer to LASIK as a liberating procedure that changed their lives for the positive.

If the prospect of reducing or possibly eliminating your need for glasses or contacts sounds appealing, you may be ready to take that first step and find out if LASIK treatment is a viable alternative for you.

One option is to fill out the short questionnaire on the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center website, submit your answers and let the knowledgeable team evaluate your suitability for the procedure. If the staff determines that your eye health might qualify you for LASIK, they will contact you to schedule a free consultation.

Another option is to simply call the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center at 865-588-3937 to schedule an appointment or fill out the online consultation request form.

During your initial consultation, the CCLC staff will take a reading of your current glasses or contacts prescription, which will quickly allow them to assess whether or not you are within the prescription range that LASIK can effectively treat.

From there, the CCLC team will explain to you the entire LASIK process, which begins with a more thorough pre-operative exam, continues with the surgical procedure itself and finishes with follow-up visits. Along the way, you’ll have plenty of chances to ask questions and learn all there is to know about the LASIK procedure. They even offer a tour of their facility and on-site laser center to help familiarize you with what you can expect.

If you think you might be a candidate for custom LASIK, contact the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center for more information.
