We stand behind your LASIK vision results for life!


Congratulations on choosing SLO LASIK & Cataract for your laser vision correction! We are pleased to offer most patients our Clarity for Life guarantee. This program is our commitment to you that we are interested not just in this one procedure but in a lifetime of clear vision.


We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of surgery, however please note that surgery results cannot be guaranteed. Every surgery has some risk and each eye is unique and healing can vary from patient to patient.


Our Clarity for Life guarantee means qualified patients will receive an enhancement laser procedure free of charge if a future LASIK enhancement is needed to maintain your original vision results!




Who is eligible for the program?

  • You are eligible if you have good general eye health and have had your initial laser eye treatment at SLO LASIK & Cataract. Please read the detailed guidelines for complete information. To maintain eligibility in the Clarity for Life program, you will need to have an annual eye exam performed by your eye doctor.


What are the requirements?

  • The patient must be treated at SLO LASIK & Cataract for his or her initial procedure and have a myopic spherical equivalent of -10.00 D or better and/or astigmatism of no greater than -3.00 D at the time of treatment, or the patient must have a hyperopic spherical equivalent of a +4.00 D or better and/or astigmatism of no greater than a -2.00 D at the time of treatment.


  • The patient must have a best corrected (aided) vision of 20/40 distance vision or better at distance prior to the laser refractive procedure.


  • The patient must have followed the complete course of post-op treatment required during the first 12 months after the procedure (initial and enhancements, if any), including post-op follow-up visits, as prescribed by the SLO LASIK & Cataract surgeon and affiliated eye doctor.


  • The patient must be current in all payments due to SLO LASIK & Cataract for laser vision correction.


  • Following completion of the post-op treatment period of 12 months, the patient must have annual eye exams with an eye doctor. Fees for the annual eye exams are determined by the patient’s doctor. Fees for annual exams are the responsibility of the patient.


  • The patient understands that the surgeon who performed the original procedure may not be available for the enhancement; if that is the case, another surgeon will be recommended.


  • The SLO LASIK & Cataract affiliated eye doctor and treating surgeon must agree that it is medically advisable to pursue the enhancement requested by a patient. In the event of a difference of medical opinion between them, the ultimate decision as to medically advisability is made by the SLO LASIK & Cataract surgeon.




What are the program exclusions?

  • Although we expect many patients to be eligible for the Clarity for Life program, there are exceptions or conditions under which further refractive procedures are ill-advised. These patients, as described below, will not be eligible for the Clarity for Life program:


  • Patients whose refractive error falls outside the eligibility guidelines. Refer to the Eligibility Guidelines above.


  • Patients whose loss of vision is a result of trauma to the eye.


  • Patients whose reduced vision is due to irregular astigmatism.


  • Patients who had RK, ALK, or other refractive procedures, prior to having laser vision correction.


  • Patients whose initial laser vision correction was not performed at SLO LASIK & Cataract.


  • Patients diagnosed with an ocular disease such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinal tear or detachment, corneal ectasia, or macular degeneration.


  • Patients seeking an enhancement as a result of developing or progression of presbyopia, even though presbyopia is a result of natural changes in vision.


  • Patients who fail to comply with the Clarity for Life eligibility guidelines.


What is included in the program?

  • Your fee for your vision correction procedure includes post-surgical care for up to twelve months following the initial procedure. This post-surgical care must take place at our affiliated optometrist’s office. The yearly comprehensive eye exam is not included in the post-op period.


What is not included in the program?

  • Travel-related costs.


  • Costs of annual comprehensive eye exam after surgery.


  • Costs of any visits unrelated to the standard LASIK post-surgical care, even within the first year.


  • Pre- and post-op care for an enhancement, unless this care occurs within the first year following the patient’s initial procedure.


  • Costs for treatment of monovision patients who elect to change their target refraction.
