Posted by: Missouri Eye Institute in Blog on May 8, 2023

What do you give the woman who gave you everything? How about the gift of visual freedom?

Choosy moms choose Missouri Eye Institute for LASIK vision correction. If you are a mom, have a mom or know a mom stuck in glasses and contacts, honor her on Mother’s Day with effective vision care from the finest LASIK team in the region.

Read on to learn why so many amazing moms consider Missouri Eye to be the M-O-T-H-E-R of all LASIK providers.


LASIK is the gold standard for correcting myopia, also known as nearsightedness. You may also be a candidate for LASIK if you have hyperopia (farsightedness) or even astigmatism. (YES, we can treat astigmatism with the advanced LASIK technology our surgeons offer!)

Ophthalmologists & More

The ophthalmologists, surgeons and staff at Missouri Eye Institute are all highly trained and experienced. They’ve helped thousands of patients achieve visual freedom and say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses. 


Busy mom? She’ll be relieved to know that LASIK takes mere minutes per eye. Mom will be back at home in a matter of hours and back to work or play in a day or so. 


Approximately 90 percent of LASIK patients achieve 20/20 or greater; 99 percent get to 20/40 or better vision after LASIK. As a result, LASIK laser vision correction has an incredibly high patient satisfaction rate of 96 percent. The staff at Missouri Eye Institute, specifically, has garnered hundreds of five-star reviews for excellent service and skilled surgeons.

Moms understand dollars and cents, so here are some LASIK numbers that should resonate: the LASIK investment is about $2,000-$2,800 per eye, according to nationwide averages, and it’s designed to remove the ongoing expense of glasses and contacts (estimate low monthly payments here). By contrast, prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses can cost hundreds of dollars per year – and they get pricier every year – for the rest of your life. For a young mother, LASIK can lead to to tens of thousands of dollars saved over a lifetime.
