We care about your time and put our best minds together to create a scheduling format that ensures you won’t be left waiting in the waiting room.

Personalized Care

Our surgeons insist on personally meeting you before and after the surgery because they are your surgeons, who better to oversee your care? Our doctors even give out their cellphone numbers to their surgical patients!

We spent millions of dollars to help you see better. The technology at Carrot LASIK & Eye Center ensures we’re able to help you get the best results possible.

Surgeons Who Serve the Community

Our dedicated surgeons generously offer their time to support the community’s trauma centers, ensuring that the same skilled surgeon who handles emergency cases is also the one enhancing your vision.

Locally- and Veteran-Owned

Both Dr. Hammond and Dr. Herion served in the armed forces, and live locally, just a short 25 minute drive from the office. The pair have also been through the same LASIK process you’ll be going through here at Carrot LASIK & Eye Center.

We’re your go-to hub for advanced ophthalmology solutions, with a strong focus on improving your quality of life. We offer not just LASIK, but six modern vision correction procedures to cater to your specific needs.

Is LASIK Surgery Safe?

LASIK is one of the safest elective surgeries you can have with the greatest impact on your daily life. We understand the idea of surgery can be scary, especially when it comes to the eyes. To help reduce your nerves, we put together some facts about LASIK:

  • Modern LASIK surgery takes around 15 minutes for both eyes, and you will see results immediately.
  • LASIK has a complication rate of less than 0.5%! At Carrot, we’ve invested in reducing that number even further.
  • Those having LASIK are up to five times less likely to have a complication with their eyes than everyday contact wearers.
  • LASIK’s patient satisfaction rate is over 98%!
  • Over 10 million people in the United States have had LASIK surgery. Over 40 million people world-wide have opted for LASIK.
  • LASIK has been FDA approved in the United States since 1995.
