• Dr. Paul Wright and Dr. Ted Fromm are two of the leading laser vision correction specialists in Rapid City, having performed thousands of successful procedures and employing two of the most advanced lasers in use today. Three areas specifically distinguish our surgeons in the minds of our patients:

      • Their expertise is obvious in both the results they produce and the way they conduct themselves when you talk with them. They seem
        to know exactly what to do for each set of eyes and give their patients the information they need to make their best choice.
      • When you research the most advanced technology in the LASIK field, you will find that two names are mentioned as the best,
        Technolas Zyoptix and the Intralase™ laser. Our surgeons have taken the time to invest in this technology because they know it will
        give our patients the best results.
      • The two major points of hesitation for most people in having LASIK is safety and achieving the goal of 20/20 vision. Our surgeons'
        track records speaks volumes about the safety element. The confidence in their ability to produce 20/20 or better vision is evidenced
        by the fact that over 90% of our patients receive 20/20 or better vision after laser vision correction at Wright Vision Center.

    • Contacts vs LASIK?

      Though contacts are a viable solution for vision correction, there are a few reasons why you should consider having LASIK over wearing contacts.

      1. Wind, dust, sports & allergies = big problem for contacts; not a problem with LASIK.
      2. Recent studies show LASIK is up to 5 times safer than contacts.
      3. When you consider the risks of scratched corneas, eye fungus or other diseases from contacts, it makes sense that LASIK proves to be much safer than contacts.
      4. If you're wearing contacts, you’re already paying for LASIK. Add up the costs over a twelve to fifteen year period and you’ve probably paid for LASIK. Low interest financing solves most budget concerns.

    • More Affordable

      Cost is often the biggest concern of our patients. They want to make sure they can afford the procedure, even if they are on a budget.

      The good news is that LASIK can be very affordable. Although LASIK is considered an elective procedure (and therefore not covered by insurance), Wright Vision Center works with a financing partner and can offer 12-month, no interest payment plans that can bring the cost of LASIK within an affordable range.

    • 3 Things to Avoid When Choosing a Surgeon

      Here are 3 errors to avoid when choosing your surgeon for laser vision correction:

      1. Don't allow yourself to be rushed during the consultation or at any point during the exam process. Demand a thorough exam and full disclosure of your suitability for the procedure.
      2. Don't choose a LASIK company, choose a LASIK surgeon with an excellent personal track record – it's the personal skill and commitment of your surgeon that counts.
      3. Don't choose exclusively by price. Startlingly low prices such as $299, $499 or $699 per eye are deliberately misleading with fewer than 3% of applicants qualifying for the type of procedure used. High-quality LASIK IS affordable without compromising on outcome and safety.

    • Premium Lens Implants, IOL's or Intraocular Lenses

      An intraocular lens (IOL) is a lens implanted in the eye, usually replacing the existing crystalline lens because it has been clouded over by a cataract, or as a form of refractive surgery to change the eye's optical power as in monovision.
