How Does Laser Eye Surgery Work?
There are 2 types of laser eye surgery: LASIK and PRK. Both of these types reshape your cornea so that light can enter your eye correctly.
The main difference between LASIK and PRK is this: LASIK involves cutting a flap in your cornea and closing it after, and PRK involves removing the outer layer of your cornea. In both cases, a laser is used to reshape your cornea, and your body heals on its own.
The healing time for LASIK is typically quicker, but there are more risks involved with the incision.
Our Consultation Process
During your laser eye surgery consultation, we will review your lifestyle and assess which procedure is best for you. We will also go over any risks and determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Determining What’s Best for You
We’re here to help you determine if you are a candidate for laser eye surgery and assess the best method for you.
For instance, people who lead highly active lifestyles could damage their eyes following a LASIK procedure. But, healing time with LASIK is quicker and less invasive as you won’t need to wear an eye patch as long as with PRK.
Knowing the Risks
Any type of surgery comes with associated risks. Laser eye surgery is a routine procedure performed by surgeons, and it is fairly safe. However, both LASIK and PRK have possible complications.
Some risks include:
- Dry eye—especially prevalent with LASIK; you can temporarily or permanently produce fewer tears
- Light sensitivity—includes halos around lights, poor night vision, and double vision (often, this goes away)
- Undercorrection—laser eye surgery doesn’t always repair vision 100%
- Ectasia—this occurs when too much of your cornea is removed, causing it to bulge (it must be repaired to prevent vision loss)
- Infections—more common with LASIK flap complications

The staff at Pinnacle are great and the office was extremely comfortable! The environment was welcoming and I actually forgot that this was the first time we ever met! The process was smooth and painless! Dr. King-Smith was very thorough with my exam and made sure he addressed all my questions and concerns. They have a wide selection of different frames and colors, which, I found the perfect ones for me! I left feeling well informed and excited to come back to pick up my new glasses! I felt like I made new friends! Professional, very clean, and friendly! Couldn’t ask for anything more!
I had an amazing experience at Pinnacle Eyecare. It is clear they care about the patient and their eye health. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. King-Smith took the time to explain the different tests he was doing to help me understand my eye health and what he will continue to monitor each visit. The visit was comprehensive yet efficient, and the office is welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend this to everyone!
Wow! What an amazing office. I have been looking for an eye doctor in Columbus since I moved. Dr. King-Smith is so friendly and inviting! Eye exam was all typical, however what really made them stand apart was the staffs genuine desire to connect with me. We spent time looking for frames that complimented my face and when we got a good pick, I was able to choose a different color! So accommodating and friendly. Also there is an office dog named Max!
This place is amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. My favorite parts were we could request an appointment online and they explained every step of the way. I’ve been going to eye doctors since I was young and this is honestly the best one I’ve been to and I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone I know.
I had an INCREDIBLE experience with Pinnacle eyecare, and their staff. Professional, down to earth, and friendly. They have great equipment that will give you increased information about your inner eye health that I have not received before at other offices! Hannah at the front desk sets the appointment off right with great customer care. Kyle who helped with my frames was very friendly, and helped me make the most of my insurance benefits. They have a GREAT selection of frames as well. Dr. King-Smith was thorough with my exam, and participated at every part of my appointment from start to finish. I do not have to look any further for eye care. I am very pleased. 10/10. Would HIGHLY recommend. Also, really enjoyed seeing the office dog Max! He is SO sweet and cute!!!
Best experience at an eye doctor, ever. Doctor explained every step he was performing and made me feel comfortable. I felt like I took a mini crash course on the eyes! You can always tell when someone loves what they do, and it felt exactly like that at Pinnacle Eyecare. They took my insurance into consideration the entire time, which is very important to me. I’m very happy to have found great care and so close to me, too.
