Why Choose Vermont Eye Laser?

LASIK is a life-changing surgery, and choosing who to entrust with your vision is an important decision. Not all LASIK centers and LASIK surgeons are the same. Having your surgery done at a business that churns through patients like a factory, offers little personal attention, has a surgeon who is constantly traveling from one location to another, and provides no long-term follow-up care often leads to disappointing results. If the deal you are being offered seems too good to be true, it probably is.

At Vermont Eye Laser, we pride ourselves on three central features: a long history of excellence, a friendly and relaxing environment, and the most advanced LASIK technology available.

Vermont Eye Laser has been performing LASIK surgery for over 16 years. Over that time, the practice has been continuously named a “Practice of Excellence” by SightPath Medical and a “Top 5 Practice” by Laser Vision Centers, Inc.; it has been recognized as a “Top 25 Practice”; and it has been granted the Vermont “Practice of Excellence” award on numerous occasions. Dr. Larson and Dr. Saipe have together performed over 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and their combined fellowship training and extensive experience with refractive surgery is unparalleled in the region. But our surgeons don’t only produce fantastic results – they also provide personalized and compassionate care before, during, and after each LASIK procedure.

Furthermore, the experience of having LASIK surgery at Vermont Eye Laser is unlike any other. The calming and caring nature of our staff is impossible to ignore, as is their incredible knowledge and expertise. Our deluxe LASIK center in South Burlington creates a warm atmosphere that makes your day of surgery pleasant and stress-free, complete with complimentary snacks and free WiFi. And our LASIK laser suite itself is a state-of-the-art treatment facility with HEPA-filtered air, careful temperature and humidity control, and vibration-modifying laser furnishings. There is even a window into the treatment room so that family and friends can watch as your procedure is performed!


Finally, the technology used by the surgeons at Vermont Eye Laser is the best in the industry. We employ the iLASIK platform, which includes the IntraLase iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser for creating a bladeless flap, and the VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser with CustomVue technology, iris registration, and ActiveTrak for reshaping the cornea. This is the world’s #1-selling system for LASIK, the system most trusted by ophthalmologists, and the system that consistently outperforms all other LASIK alternatives in controlled clinical studies. Dr. Larson and Dr. Saipe combine the iLASIK platform with the WaveScan WaveFront-Guided system to precisely correct your vision like never before. Together, this collection of equipment used at Vermont Eye Laser is able to measure unique imperfections in your eyes 25-times more precisely than the standard method for measuring glasses or contact lenses, and it is able to deliver your treatment in a manner that compensates for even the smallest movement of your eye or body. The iLASIK system is the only platform trusted by NASA and the only platform approved by the U.S. military; it is also the most common choice of celebrities, athletes, and ordinary people around the world. With over 98% of patients seeing 20/20 or better without glasses or contact lenses after iLASIK, it’s easy to see why this is the world’s preferred LASIK technology.
