If you’ve ever been held back or hindered by glasses or contacts, now is the time to take back your life. Schedule your free LASIK consultation or call us at 1-720-262-5220 today and find out what the world looks like when you see it with better eyes.
What is LASIK?
That’s a great question! Despite popular belief, LASIK is not a brand or even the name of the device used during the procedure. The term “LASIK” simply refers to laser eye surgery, which is performed by our ophthalmologists or ophthalmologic surgeons here in Denver. LASIK uses precise lasers to reshape your cornea so that your vision becomes immediately clearer, with minimal recovery time.
LASIK treats nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. As one of the most commonly performed elective procedures, LASIK has allowed millions of people worldwide to experience life without glasses and contacts.

How do I know if LASIK is right for me?
We understand the decision to have eye surgery requires careful consideration. In fact, we appreciate that you want to ask questions. Let us help you navigate the decision-making process – make an appointment for a free consultation in one of our Colorado offices today. Although it isn’t required, we encourage those who have an optometrist to ask him or her for a referral to one of our offices. Working closely with your current eye care specialist helps us maintain continuity of care before and after the procedure.
We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to see the world clearly, that’s why your initial consultation with us is complimentary. This free Denver LASIK consultation involves a full eye exam using advanced diagnostic tools and pupil dilation. This provides a full picture of your current prescription, age, corneal shape and thickness, pupil size, and presence of dry eye, to determine if LASIK will be effective and safe for your unique case.
If LASIK isn’t right for you, don’t worry. We offer Clear Lens Exchange, PRK, and Visian ICL procedures as alternatives to LASIK.

Charlie W – Finland

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a vision correction surgery that is similar to LASIK. It has successfully helped millions of people in the U.S. and all over the world see more clearly for over three decades.
PRK Eye Surgery: How it Works
What Can PRK Treat?
Often used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, PRK vision correction surgery is a “flap-free” procedure that has comparable results to LASIK. Because of the similar outcomes, PRK is a common LASIK alternative.
How is PRK different than LASIK?
PRK pre-dates LASIK, but in both cases, a laser is used to correct any refractive issues on the corneal surface. The main difference between PRK and LASIK is how the cornea is accessed during the procedure. With LASIK, a thin flap is created on the surface of the cornea. With PRK, the very thin outer layer of the cornea (epithelium) is gently swabbed away to allow your surgeon access to a larger treatment area. This outer layer naturally regenerates itself after surgery.
At your free consultation, our skilled and expert ophthalmological surgeons will recommend which procedure is right for you. They’ll also answer any other questions you might have.
Clear Lens Exchange
Clear Lens Exchange (CLE) (sometimes called clear lens exchange, or CLE) is an alternative to LASIK, PRK, and other vision correction procedures.
The most common candidates for CLE are:
- Patients over the age of 40 who wish to eliminate the need for reading glasses permanently.
- Patients who are experiencing the early onset of cataracts and wish to have surgery before the cataract worsens.
- People under the age of 40 who have extreme prescriptions or thin corneas – CLE is generally recommended over LASIK or PRK in these cases.
Using the same intraocular lens options seen in cataract surgery (LifeStyle Lenses), Clear Lens Exchange is used to correct vision when cataracts are not present. For this reason, CLE is an elective procedure, unlike cataract surgery.
Clear Lens Exchange: Introduction
What can CLE treat?
CLE surgery can be a good option for patients with extreme prescriptions, presbyopia (farsightedness) or thin corneas. CLE effectively corrects astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness by replacing your eye’s natural lens with an artificial one that helps the eye focus correctly.
What is the CLE Procedure like?
The surgery, which uses laser technology to create highly customized results, is similar to cataract surgery and lens replacement. Because the natural eye lens is no longer in place, patients who undergo CLE are no longer at risk of developing cataracts, even as they age. The intraocular lens sits inside your eye, rather than on the surface like a contact lens. This means you will not feel or see the new lens. Your vision following refractive eye surgery will depend on the intraocular lens chosen.
What types of lenses are available with CLE?
Whether you love the outdoors, work at a computer, or lead an active life, we help you select the lens to match the way you live your life. Premium intraocular lenses often result in better vision at all distances, reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.
At your free consultation, our skilled and expert ophthalmological surgeons will recommend which procedure is right for you. You’ll discuss which intraocular lens will give you the best results for your particular needs and lifestyle.
ICON Eyecare believes everyone deserves the opportunity to see the richness and beauty of the world we live in. So, for the small percentage of patients who are not ideal LASIK, PRK, or CLE candidates, ICON Eyecare has alternative procedures to improve vision and quality of life.
For people with moderate to severe nearsightedness, as well as those who suffer from severe dry eye or thin corneas, the Visian ICL procedure is an excellent option.
Visian ICL is a simple, 15-minute procedure with a quick recovery time and many benefits, including:
- Improved vision without the hassles of corrective eyewear
- No-maintenance permanent solution to better vision
- Minimally invasive, virtually painless procedure
- Reversible procedure with removable lens if necessary
Results of a 3-year FDA trial showed:
- 99% patient satisfaction with the Visian ICL
- 98.3% of those with the Visian ICL could drive without corrective lenses
- Following the ICL procedure, corrected vision remained stable over the post-op follow-up appointment period.
