Totally loved the front office staff and the young lady that started the exam. She made it fun and was very efficient without making me feel like she was just rushing through to the next client. Dr. Coco was friendly and didn't waste any time. He reviewed the results the assistant had put into the computer, checked my eyes himself, and then gave me his verdict of what was going on and how we would go forward. Not in a telling me what but in a we're in this together kind of way. I am glad to have found Dr. Coco and his staff. You will be too.

LASIK Eye Surgery

Life-Changing Vision Correction

LASIK has become one of the most well-known eye surgeries in recent years and for good reason. The significant vision improvement that LASIK can achieve allows many patients to do away with glasses and contact lenses altogether. Imagine being able to drive, work on the computer, and play with your children without the need for corrective lenses.

At Pearl Street Eye, our LASIK surgeons use the most advanced laser technology and the most modern techniques to correct our patients' sight. If you are considering LASIK surgery, we invite you to contact us today.


How Does LASIK Work?

Most common vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are caused by misshaped corneas. The cornea refracts light through the eye and onto the retina. When it is irregularly shaped, light does not refract properly, and your vision suffers.

During LASIK surgery, an eye surgeon uses a laser to reshape the corneal tissue. When the eye's tissue is corrected, the patient's vision becomes clearer.


How Is LASIK Performed? A Procedure Timeline

LASIK surgery takes about 15 minutes per eye.
LASIK surgery takes about 15 minutes per eye.

Corneal Flap

After applying numbing drops and an ophthalmology speculum to keep your eye open, the LASIK surgeon will use a highly precise surgical tool to create an extremely thin flap on the corneal surface. Then, the doctor will fold back the flap as if it is on a hinge to expose tissue beneath the surface.  

Laser Correction

Next, the LASIK surgeon will safely and precisely use a medical laser to remove corneal tissue. For nearsighted patients, the laser makes the cornea flatter. For farsighted patients, the laser makes it steeper. For patients with astigmatism, the laser can correct the cornea's irregularities. 

Nearly Immediate Results

Finally, the doctor completes the surgery by folding back the corneal flap. The corneal surface naturally heals over a matter of days. You may notice improved vision just one day after LASIK treatment.

Other Featured Procedures

While LASIK is one of our most sought-after procedures, we provide a wide variety of treatments at our practice in Boulder, CO. Some of our other popular procedures include:


PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is another form of laser eye surgery that serves as an alternative to LASIK. Similar to LASIK, PRK is a corneal surgery that uses a laser to reshape the corneal tissue. However, instead of folding back a corneal flap, the front portion of the lens is removed entirely. This can better suit patients with thin corneas.

Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are common in older adults. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens that causes the vision to become blurry. During cataract surgery, one of our eye doctors will use a laser to expose the natural lens. Then, the lens is broken up and removed using ultrasound technology. Finally, the doctor will replace the lens with an advanced prosthetic.

Visian ICL

Another alternative to LASIK for patients with nearsightedness or astigmatism is Visian ICL™ treatment. The Visian ICL is a prosthetic lens. During surgery, one of our eye surgeons can safely insert the ICL behind the iris. This is a unique corrective surgery because it does not involve the removal of any natural tissue.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, causing vision loss over time. Our eye doctors can provide you with a range of treatment options to control your glaucoma, including eye drops, medications, and laser surgery. Timely treatment with us can prevent vision loss and blindness.

Eye Floaters Treatment

If you have black or gray specks in your vision that move when you look at them, they may be due to age-related changes occurring inside your eye. Though eye floaters can be easy to ignore, flashes of light or a sudden increase in floaters can be an indication of something serious that requires immediate attention. Our eye doctors can perform tests and provide you with any necessary treatment.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry, itchy eyes are uncomfortable and can make it difficult to see, especially when driving at night or looking at a computer screen. Our eye doctors can perform diagnostic tests to pinpoint the cause of your dry eyes and create a treatment plan that is uniquely suited to your condition.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

An eye exam performed by one of our Boulder, CO, eye doctors can help detect early warning signs of serious eye-related problems before they have a negative impact on your vision. During your eye exam, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will perform a variety of tests to assess your vision and eye health. If necessary, we can even fit you for contact lenses and glasses.

Protect Your Eyesight

Why Regular Eye Exams Are Important

Even if you are satisfied with your vision, it is still a good idea to undergo regular eye exams with highly trained optometrists. During a basic eye exam, our doctors may notice signs of medical conditions that you might not have noticed. For example, glaucoma is a condition that can lead to blindness, but it usually does not affect your vision until it is too late to properly address.

When you join us at our office for the first time, we encourage you to come prepared with a summary of your medical history and any corrective lenses you are currently using.
