Laser Vision Correction/Refractive Surgery

As a leading expert in laser vision correction and refractive surgery, Dr. Sher has over two decades of experience in helping patients to eliminate or reduce their need for the contacts and eyeglasses they use for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

Dr. Sher utilizes the most advanced laser vision and refractive surgery techniques. In less than 15 minutes, he can alter the shape of the cornea to improve uncorrected vision. Laser vision correction procedures are highly effective. After their procedures, most of his patients no longer need contacts or eye glasses for distance vision.

Dr. Sher and his highly skilled team perform their examinations at the downtown Minneapolis office. He performs his surgeries at the renowned Phillips Eye Institute, which is an outstanding hospital dedicated to ophthalmic treatment and surgery located nearby at 24th and Park Avenue.

After surgery, Dr. Sher and his staff personally attend and administer all postoperative care. He strongly believes that the surgeon provides the best postoperative care and will be present for this important stage of vision improvement.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a form of laser eye surgery used to precisely alter the shape of the cornea by removing a small amount of cells from the outer layer using an excimer laser. PRK surgery is extremely effective and can greatly improve your vision without cutting a corneal flap as is done with the LASIK procedure.
