I'm delighted to share my positive experience with Dr. Travers and the Lasik surgery I recently underwent. From the initial consultation to the post-operative care, Dr. Travers and her team were exceptional every step of the way. The surgery itself was quick and virtually painless, and I could immediately notice a significant improvement in my vision. Dr. Travers' expertise and professionalism instilled confidence in me throughout the process. I couldn't be happier with the results, and I highly recommend Dr. Travers to anyone considering Lasik surgery. Thank you for giving me the gift of clear vision!

Right away upon entering the office, I was greeted by Renee with a big smile. She knew I was nervous and made me feel completely at ease. I started my consult with a variety of tests with Melissa who was extremely professional and thorough. I met with the optometrist Dr. Reiman who led some exams. When it came time to go over logistics, Amy was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire process and very comforting as she has had lasik as well. I came back in the afternoon for my surgery and WOW so easy! Dr Travers was calming, accommodating, and incredibly professional. She walked me through the entire surgery as it was happening. Once again, she knew I was very nervous but made sure I understood exactly what she was doing. The entire surgery lasted about 10 minutes. Woke up the next morning after my lovely Valium nap to crisp vision that they say will only get better as time goes on. Cannot recommend Travers Lasik enough- if you’re hesitant, just stop by the office and meet the people- they are so awesome. Once again, thank you Travers Lasik team!

Absolutely amazing group of individuals at this location. Literally the most positive experience I have ever had at a doctor's office. I got the consultation for corrective surgery and still have to get it done, just have to figure out finances. Update: I made it back! I got LASIK in both eyes. The procedure was flawless and it really instilled confidence knowing that they are so skilled. It felt like I was in a command center in the process of a launch or special operation. The actual procedure was a bit overwhelming at times, but the doctors consistent feedback and instructions made the difference. The hours after were painful in various ways. The light was the worst part. I would suggest getting something that can cover your whole face for the ride home and keep it nice and dark. The pain wasn't too bad, but it did intensify over an hour as the medicine wore off. After I woke up the next day, it felt perfectly fine. Light wasn't an issue anymore and the pain had completely subsided. I would do it all over again if I had to.

I highly recommend Travers Lasik to everyone. Don't wait for years to have perfect vision without the need of glasses and contacts like I have. My consultation went amazing and all the nerves disappeared from the welcome I got from the front desk (Renee Bell) who put me at ease before my appointment even started, - to the tech and Doctor who answered all my questions, - to the admin who went over the pricing and financing options. I quickly scheduled my appointment for the surgery because I have no reason to not. It's a affordable, safe, and its getting the gift of vision back. Seriously, don't wait! Thank you to the entire team of Travers Lasik!

LASIK Surgeon in Wake Forest Frequently Asked Questions

Lasik successfully treats nearsighted, farsighted and astigmatism conditions. The only way to be sure is to examine your eyes at a FREE Lasik Exam. While some individuals cannot be helped by Lasik, most patients are excellent candidates.

The most common word used by our patients is “weird.”

You should be able to see much more clearly immediately after your procedure. As your eyes adjust in the days, weeks and months ahead, your vision should gradually reach optimized results.

No. 

Due to the fact that before your Lasik procedure you will take a sedative that most likely impairs your ability to operate a motor vehicle.

After your surgery, you may experience blurred or sensitive vision and feel uncomfortable. We highly recommend that you plan to have someone else drive you home.  Let us know if you need assistance booking a rideshare or taxi service.

You should be able to resume your normal schedule the day after your procedure.

The Lasik procedure is FDA approved for anyone 18 years and older. The procedure works best when the eyes have stopped growing or changing and a steady glasses prescription has been reached.

The only difference is in the way the cornea flap is created. All-Laser Lasik is bladeless, and uses a laser to create the flap whereas regular Lasik uses a microkeratome. The benefit of All-Laser Lasik is more precise cornea flaps and a reduced risk of experiencing dry eyes after the operation.

Lasik cannot prevent presbyopia or reading issues that tend to occur over the age of 40.  In presbyopia the lens of the eye gradually becomes less able to focus on close objects as you age, resulting in the need for reading glasses.  This lens deterioration is unavoidable and is unaffected by Lasik.  Thus, reading glasses may be required to focus on near objects as you age.   

Ask us about how you can limit or reduce your dependency on reading glasses at your consultation.

LASIK is considered to be an elective procedure and therefore health insurance plans do not cover Lasik.

Some insurance companies will offer plans that give a discount on the surgery price.

Lasik is an eligible expense for Flexible Spending Plans.  There are also interest-free financing options that assist with making Lasik more affordable.

Our prices are in most cases better than any other provider’s, even with an insurance discount. We will be happy to work with you to give you the best possible price for all-laser-lasik in Raleigh.

While there is a very short recovery time from the surgery, patients should be careful with the eye area immediately following the procedure. Do not rub your eyes and wear sunglasses. No hard to remove eyeliner or mascara should be used for up to one week after the surgery. Activities such as swimming in pools or hot tubs, playing racquet sports and going to tanning beds should be avoided for one week as well.

Laser vision correction is generally painless or associated with little discomfort. During the procedure, anesthetic drops are used to numb the eye with no injections or needles. LASIK patients will generally have irritation for several hours after the procedure. Many patients compare this to the sensation of having an eyelash in the eye and feeling no discomfort the following day. Having treated thousands of patients with LASIK, Dr. Travers and her staff make every effort to make your surgery as comfortable as possible.

How quickly will I be able to see better?

You should be able to see much more clearly immediately after your procedure. As your eyes adjust in the days, weeks, and months ahead, your vision should gradually reach optimized results.

You should be able to see much more clearly immediately after your procedure. As your eyes adjust in the days, weeks and months ahead, your vision should gradually reach optimized results.

Lasik vision correction is a permanent procedure and will improve your vision forever.  However, some regression may occur after treatment in some patients and vision may not remain “perfect,” requiring a touch-up treatment known as “Lasik enhancement.” 

Statistically, the rate of this is low.  About 1-2% of patients will require an enhancement within the first year after initial treatment and roughly 5% of patients will need an enhancement after 5 years. 

WaveLight Vario Topolyzer is an advanced eye mapping device. The Topolyzer gathers nearly 22,000 points of data on the cornea.

This information and data is seamlessly integrated into The WaveLight EX500 excimer laser for the perfect custom LASIK surgery.

By utilizing the Vario Topolyzer, Dr. Travers can customize Lasik procedures to treat each patient’s specific visual axis as well as utilize iris registration capabilities to have their Lasik treatment applied to the cornea avoiding any cyclo-rotation of the eye
