I wasn't expecting such excellent customer service and a high quality of experience and expertise. I was not disappointed in any way. This group was recommended to me by a co-worker and she gave them high praise as well. They made sure my experience was great and that I received any and all benefits with my insurance coverage.

Why Should Patients Schedule a Comprehensive Eye Exam? 

Early detection of eye conditions is the key to ensuring the most effective treatment, and a comprehensive eye exam can help our team of doctors learn about the health and structure of your eyes. When performing an eye exam at our Sunnyvale offices, our doctors use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to help clearly identify areas of concern. These tools allow us to check for signs of:  

Identifying these conditions early on can help reduce the risk of permanent vision loss or even blindness. In addition to these advanced tests, our doctors will perform vision testing to identify nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism and prescribe the appropriate treatment. If you can benefit from contact lenses, eyeglasses, or another treatment, our onsite optical stores offer several options to suit your lifestyle and optical needs. To schedule an eye exam, please contact us online or call (408) 739-6200.

Expertly Performed LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery

LASIK surgery has become the most well-known and sought-after corrective procedure in recent years, and for good reason. LASIK has the potential to change patients' lives by correcting their vision to the point where they no longer require eyeglasses or contact lenses. At Silicon Valley Eye Physicians in Sunnyvale, CA, LASIK surgery is handled primarily by our ophthalmologist, Dr. David Mark.

What Is LASIK?

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery is a form of refractive surgery that involves the use of a highly precise laser to reshape the cornea and correct vision. Most common vision problems like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism are caused by irregularly shaped corneas. Classic corrective lenses work by refracting light in such a way to compensate for the misshapen cornea. However, modern technology now allows us to reshape the cornea itself with LASIK, eliminating your dependence on glasses or contacts that are fragile, easy to lose, and expensive to replace.

How Is LASIK Performed?

The LASIK process can be completed in less than 15 minutes and consists of several steps:

  • Anesthesia: Before beginning the surgery, the surgeon will apply local anesthesia to the eyes in the form of eye drops, so there will be no pain at all during the procedure.
  • Cornea Flap Creation: The surgeon will make an extremely thin flap in the cornea either using a surgical tool known as a mircrokeratome or a laser.
  • Cornea Correction: The surgeon will fold back the flap as if it was on a hinge to access the corneal tissue below. Then, the surgeon will use the laser to precisely reshape the cornea so that it correctly refracts light onto the retina.
  • Surgery Completion: The surgeon will fold back the flap in the cornea. The cut in the cornea will naturally heal without the need for suturing. 

What Is Recovery Like after LASIK Surgery?

Immediately after LASIK surgery, the surgeon should provide you with prescription eye drops that can help prevent inflammation and infection. Someone else will need to drive you home after your surgery.

Patients can notice improved vision just a few days after surgery. We will likely schedule follow-up appointments with our ophthalmologist regularly over the first six months after LASIK to ensure there are no complications. 

What Are Potential Side Effects of LASIK?

Because of the precision of the laser used in LASIK, complications arising from the actual procedure are extremely rare. Side effects that some patients do experience include infection, corneal halos, and under or overcorrection. During a consultation for any refractive surgery at our office in Sunnyvale, CA, our eye doctors will thoroughly cover any potential risks of the recommended treatment.

LASIK at Silicon Valley Eye Physicians

Our ophthalmologist, Dr. David Mark, is specially trained in laser vision correction, and he conducts all of our patients' LASIK surgeries at the Horizon Vision Center in Santa Clara. This laser center features some of the most advanced LASIK technology available. Dr. Mark likes to operate using the VISX Smooth Scan Excimer Laser.

In addition to one of the best lasers available for LASIK today, we also employ sophisticated wavefront technology to chart the shape of the patient's eyes before refractive surgery. Using the readings from the wavefront technology, we can program the laser to target corneal tissue even more precisely, producing better results than standard LASIK alone.

Are You Ready for LASIK?

If you're ready to say "goodbye" to eyeglasses and contact lenses, call the eye care specialists at Silicon Valley Eye Physicians in Sunnyvale, CA, today. For patients considering LASIK, we are happy to provide screening evaluations free of charge. In a comprehensive appointment that takes about an hour and a half, our eye surgeon will examine your corneas to determine if you are eligible for laser vision correction. During this consultation, we will also discuss details like pricing, risks, and pre-operative instructions. We accept CareCredit® financing, have a variety of payment plans and programs, and offer zero percent financing on LASIK for 12 months.

Silicon Valley Eye Physicians uses advanced techniques to diagnose your condition and offer a range of treatments to provide relief.
