ROUTINE EYE CARE 12-24 months

In order to maintain the health of your eyes and protect your investment, you may return to OVO for your routine eye exams or visit your primary eye care doctor every 1-2 years. Post-op visits are covered at no charge for 11 months following your procedure. Routine eye care starting at 12 months is a separate charge.

best price

At OVO we don’t want price to stand in the way of you having the very best for your eyes.

OVO pricing includes your personalized procedure with Dr. Lobanoff, a world-renowned LASIK surgeon, the most advanced Wavefront-Guided Phorcides LASIK treatment, follow up care by industry-leading doctors and staff, and the OVO Lifetime Assurance, which includes optimal local support standing by you every step of the way for years to come. If you find a lower LASIK price somewhere else — we’ll match it and include all the benefits of OVO.

Being straightforward, honest and upfront about everything we do, our Clear LASIK pricing is no different. While many “LASIK shops” look attractive by advertising higher rack prices that can be deeply discounted, these ‘smoke and mirror’ tactics leave patients feeling confused and often paying more than LASIK at OVO.

Home / ovoLifetime assurance

The OVO Lifetime Assurance means you have a committed partner in your quest for the very best vision throughout your lifetime. OVO will stand beside you if there are any changes in your vision after your LASIK procedure. If additional LASIK or PRK (two different types of Laser Vision Correction) can be performed, it will be done at no charge to you.

Because OVO does more than LASIK and PRK, we will extend this Lifetime Assurance into your later years as cataracts develop. It’s common to need Laser Vision Correction after cataract surgery, and this will be done for our ADVANCED LENS OVO patients as a courtesy in order to deliver the very best vision throughout your life.
