Frequently Asked questions

Norfolk LASIK Eye Surgery FAQ

LASIK can make patients a little nervous and confused so we took some of the most common questions our LASIK Surgeons in Norfolk most commonly get asked every day to help you make an informed decision about this life-changing procedure.

How Much Does LASIK Cost in Norfolk?

The  average price of LASIK Eye Surgery is $2,588* per eye (according to the most recent US analysis reported Market Scope in 2022). However, it’s important to note that this is just an estimate, and the actual cost can differ based on individual circumstances.

Does Insurance Cover LASIK Eye Surgery in Norfolk?

Insurance providers typically consider LASIK to be an elective surgery therefore it is typically not covered. However, most providers offer some kind of promotion or discount.

How Long is the Recovery for LASIK?

The recovery period for LASIK eye surgery is relatively short, with most patients experiencing improved vision within the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, though individual results may vary. While you may resume most normal activities within a few days, it’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions for the best and safest recovery outcome.

Is LASIK Eye Surgery Safe?

LASIK eye surgery is considered safe and has a high success rate for most patients, but like any surgical procedure, it carries potential risks and complications and the possibility of needing additional enhancements. It is crucial to consult with one of our qualified eye surgeon in our network to assess your individual suitability for LASIK and discuss any concerns you may have.

Who is a Candidate for LASIK in Norfolk?

LASIK candidates should have a stable prescription for at least one to two years and be in good overall health with healthy eyes. Additionally, corneal thickness, pupil size, and age are factors considered by eye care professionals. It’s essential to consult with an experienced, ophthalmologist or optometrist for a comprehensive examination to determine individual eligibility for LASIK.

What Vision Errors Does LASIK Correct?

LASIK is primarily used to correct common refractive errors, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. The procedure reshapes the cornea to improve the way light is focused onto the retina, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.

I was/am thoroughly impressed with the Lasik Institute in VB. I went in on a Wednesday for a free consultation and 10 days later I walked out with 20/20 vision, without pesky glasses, for the first time in 37 years. The staff was incredible and made me feel at ease. I couldn't believe how organized they were on the day of surgery when there were several others there for the procedure. They took care of…

From the consultation to both of our surgeries and aftercare this place was phenomenal! Crystal, Tabby, and Christine were so helpful with our young girls and in such a genuine way when we couldn’t get someone to watch them for mine and my husband’s consultations. Everything was easy to figure out. We had Dr. Robert’s I believe and he was attentive even though it’s a pretty quick surgery. The only thing is that our friends…

This was my second time getting LASIK. Because I had it previously I had to get PRK. It was a very different experience healing wise. The facility itself was super friendly, welcoming and informative. They made me feel safe and sure throughout every step of the journey(the snacks in the office were awesome shout out to Crystal). Everything was a lot more convenient and accommodating. I also love that they have multiple locations. 10 out…

I had an amazing experience with LASIK Vision Institute. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I felt comfortable and well prepared for the procedure. I did experience pain after the procedure, but it only lasted a couple of hours just as they warned me., and I’ve had NO pain since. I LOVE my new vision. Kudos to the VA Beach team - Crystal, Tabby, Christine, Dr Bessel and Dr Roberts!!!

Dr. Roberts is amazing! The entire office staff is amazing. I had my LASIK on Wednesday and was 20/15 by Friday at my follow up. Dr. Bessel is always on time and punctual. The girls at the front desk, Heather, Kiera, and Patrice are so friendly. What a great experience.

Overall awesome experience! Pros: the staff is incredible. Heather up front took such good care of me & spent time thoroughly explaining everything & answering all my questions. Kiera put me at ease before the procedure, and Dr. Roberts helped me stay calm & positive during the procedure. The next day I was seeing 20/20 with minimal discomfort, & on day 3 I had my post-op appointment & now see better than 20/20! Cons: nothing…

Excellent experience! Dr. Bessell and Dr. Roberts were my optometrist and surgeon respectively. Office was super clean and new; staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Everything ran smooth and on-time! The surgery was a breeze, and had literally zero pain by that evening/the next morning! Can’t believe I put this off for so many years, it was so easy and seamless! I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who’s interested.

Reviews reflect individual experiences. As with all medical procedures, individual results will vary, and anyone considering LASIK should speak with a doctor.  A review of scientific articles published between 2008 and 2015 published in the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery found that 99.5% (59,503/59,833) of LASIK treated eyes addressed in the literature achieved post-operative acuity better than 20/40
