Dr. Kerry Assil has been at the forefront of LASIK surgery in the United States since its
introduction here in the early 1990’s.




At the Assil Eye Institute each potential LASIK patient undergoes comprehensive testing,

shape and visual function. Once Dr. Assil has determined LASIK is the right vision correction
procedure for the patient, the procedure is performed in three steps:

custom tailored flap in the outer layer of the cornea without damaging the surface. This entire
process is all-laser. The flap is temporarily folded back.
