What is LASIK?
LASIK is the most popular refractive surgery available today; it’s quick and painless, there is little or no discomfort during or after the procedure. You are able to see objects clearly across the room, or read a clock, just minutes after the surgery. For both personal and professional reasons, patients choose LASIK as it allows them to more freely pursue their hobbies, sports activities or career options. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, with or without astigmatism. Pacific Eye Associates offers the most advanced LASIK procedure in San Francisco.

LASIK surgery is an ambulatory procedure which means you walk into the surgery center, have the procedure and walk out again. The actual surgery usually takes less than 15 minutes for both eyes, but expect to be at the surgery center for an hour or more.

Why Choose Pacific Eye Associates for LASIK in San Francisco?
Every patient is unique, and every eye is different. Many people choose Dr. Danny Lin, for his thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and his experience. But, mainly, because of this particular word: Trust.
Trust in Experience
Dr. Danny Lin has been practicing for 20+ years, graduated summa cum laude from the University of Berkeley and received his Doctor of Medicine Degree from Stanford University. He then went to UCLA to pursue a fellowship program in cornea and external ocular disease, cataract and refractive surgery. Because LASIK is performed on the cornea, knowledge of the healing properties of the cornea and management of any complications are critical to the patient’s well being. Knowing how to handle a complication, should one occur, can make a significant difference in the patient’s outcome.
Trust in Honesty
Dr. Lin will never push you into LASIK surgery. This might be a surprise but not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK and other doctors may simply push you towards surgery but at this practice, we make sure LASIK is the right choice for you. He takes the time to go over every detail, answers every question and makes you feel confident in your decision.
