At Barth Vision & Optical, we offer a treatment plan customized for your eyes, providing what multiple consumer surveys have indicated to be the “Best LASIK Surgery” in Sonoma County. LASIK can help you achieve 20/20 vision and in some cases better than that.

In the United States, the LASIK procedure was originally limited to treating only nearsightedness, but today we can also use it to correct farsightedness and astigmatism and some residual refractive changes after cataract surgery.

While the minimum age for laser vision correction has always been 18, upper age limits are no longer a factor.

The enhanced vision that you gain from LASIK surgery works perfectly for most activities, so you can very likely enjoy the convenience of life without glasses. Over time, however, you may eventually opt to have glasses available for driving at night or for reading.

Dr. Barth was co-founder of the Pacific Laser Eye Center in Santa Rosa. He has performed hundreds of successful surgeries over the past 25 years.

He also remains an avid and notable fan of LASIK surgery for his own needs, having had the procedure in 1996 and reporting that he will soon be celebrating his 25th anniversary of life without glasses.
