What is refractive surgery?
Many people have heard about refractive surgery and may not even know about it. Vision corrective surgeries, like LASIK, PRK, and refractive lens exchange, are all types of refractive procedures aimed to correct a patient's eyesight and reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses and contacts. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, leading ophthalmologist R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and his team focus on providing high-quality care to our patients and will help you select the best refractive surgery for your needs. Schedule a consultation at our Bloomington, IN office to learn more about the refractive surgeries we offer and which is best for your unique needs.
What should I expect from refractive surgery?
At our Bloomington, IN office, our team is thrilled to offer the following refractive surgeries for patients:
- LASIK reshapes the cornea to improve your eye's refractive ability and improve your sight
- PRK removes the epithelium of the eye to address the cornea's curvature and may be good for patients who don't qualify for LASIK
- Refractive lens exchange is typically performed on older patients and involves the removal of the eye's natural lens, which is then replaced with an artificial IOL (intraocular lens)
Depending on what is talked about during your consultation, we will craft a treatment plan that is fully personalized to you and outlines the cost and technique for each procedure.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
