North Shore Eye Care will be hosting a free live LASIK presentation open to the public on September 13th for their Nassau divisions in Hempstead and Garden City.  I will be hosting the seminar demonstrating a live procedure and giving a short presentation about having LASIK at North Shore Eye.  All attendees will receive $1000 off their LASIK surgery and will get the opportunity to see first hand what it is like to have LASIK.   We also offer zero percent interest financing for 2 years through CareCredit, making LASIK more affordable than ever.  Some of the topics discussed will include the types of prescriptions that can be corrected by LASIK, how we screen LASIK candidates, and the pros and cons of PRK, an alternative to LASIK for those with thin corneas.
