Laser Refractive Procedures

For a video overview of laser vision correction, please see our educational video.

Laser refractive procedures are one of the newest and most exciting developments in eye care available to most people who wear glasses or contacts.  Imagine being able to perform most or all of your activities of daily life without the burden of glasses or contacts.  Imagine waking up and seeing your alarm clock without fumbling for your glasses, or finding your way to your kids room in the middle of the night, without walking into furniture.  Water sports such as scuba-diving, water-skiing, and swimming could be in perfect focus.  Imagine your confidence when you don't have to worry about losing your glasses, and finding yourself essentially blind during a critical moment. 

Utilizing the most advanced equipment in the country, Dr. Tim Khater, M.D., Ph.D. is Lubbock's most experienced fellowship trained specialist laser refractive surgeon.  (Dr. Khater has completed one-year of fellowship training in cornea, external disease, cataract and refractive surgery.)  While most Doctors doing this procedure have taken weekend training courses, Dr. Khater is Lubbock's ONLY specialist laser refractive surgeon.
