What is the success rate at Woolfson Eye Institute?
While we certainly cannot guarantee a specific result with regards to any one person’s eye surgery, what we can do at Woolfson Eye Institute is tell you that, of the thousands of patients we have treated, an overwhelming majority achieve 20/20 vision or better.
For example, out of 80,000 LASIK procedures performed at Woolfson Eye Institute, we’ve only had 2 cases (3 eyes total) where infection occurred. The national average rate of infection is approximately 1 in 5,000, so we believe we are doing something right to protect patients from this serious complication. The LASIK patients who developed infections were treated and have recovered good vision.
