The maze of LASIK advertisements and choices can be overwhelming. Our doctors are knowledgeable about the evolution of refractive surgery technology and surgeon experience across the state throughout the last 30 years.
Our goal is to provide a personalized experience with the very best visual outcome and the highest level of safety for every patient. To do so requires technology and surgeon experience that is simply not available locally. OVO LASIK + Lens is a premier state-of-the-art surgery center with a world-renowned surgeon, Dr. Lobanoff, right here in Minnesota. The doctors at Eye Clinic North provide local preoperative and postoperative care for 12 months and a Lifetime Assurance policy for no additional cost.
Lifetime Assurance means you have committed partners, Eye Clinic North and OVO, in your quest for the very best vision throughout your lifetime. If there are changes in your vision following your procedure and LASIK or PRK can be performed, it will be done at no charge to you.
In later years, as cataracts develop, the Lifetime Assurance will be extended to ADVANCED LENS OVO patients to optimize post-cataract surgery vision with a Laser Vision Correction touch-up.
Have you been told you are not a LASIK candidate? Technology is powerful and ever-changing. During your free evaluation, our doctors will discuss how advanced laser technology may benefit you and discuss other refractive surgery options such as Visian ICL, Refractive Lens Exchange, or custom Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery.

If you have not had an eye exam within the last 2 years, we recommend starting with a comprehensive eye exam where LASIK will be discussed.
LASIK Candidacy Exam (Complimentary)
Our doctors at Eye Clinic North will use advanced equipment to evaluate your eyes to determine if you are a good candidate. Evaluation includes measurements of corneal topography, corneal thickness, infrared pupil size in bright and dark, refractive status with three different techniques, and an assessment of internal and external eye health. The doctors will discuss the procedure, expectations, risks, benefits, and answer questions you may have.
Preoperative Instructions – 60 min
At OVO, the surgeon will verify and review pre-operative data with state-of-the-art equipment. Relaxing in your personal LASIK suite, you’ll be given valium and all of the instructions and support to assure you are comfortable and your procedure goes smoothly and comfortably.
LASIK Procedure – 10 min
(Actual procedure time – 2 minutes per eye)
Using the most advanced technology in the world, Dr. Lobanoff walks you through the procedure step-by-step along with his team of some of the most experienced ophthalmic assistants in the industry.
Immediate Recovery – 2-6 hrs
You will be instructed to rest on the way home with your eyes closed. Continue resting when you get home and sleep through any initial burning or scratchy feeling.
Postoperative Visits – 15 min
You’ll see one of our doctors on your first day post-op. Many patients feel their vision is clear enough to drive themselves in and return to work. Typical follow-up visits are scheduled at 2-3 weeks and 3 months post-op. If you experience an urgency after-hours, call the office to page one of our doctors.
Avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, contact sports, and eye makeup for 1 week. Most people choose to take the first post-op day off from work, but that is optional. Ongoing post-op care will be provided at any of our offices for up to 12 months, with Lifetime Assurance thereafter.
