Have you considered what life could be like without relying on glasses or contacts?

As we adjust to this “new normal” considering the pandemic and social distancing, it’s still important to follow up on your vision exams. If you’ve been thinking of improving your eyesight, now could be a good time.

To get a better picture of LASIK eye surgery, Manrique Custom Vision Center said that patients can work, drive a vehicle, watch TV, socialize, exercise and use a computer -- often a day after the procedure.

There is little downtime associated with the procedure.

Patients can get back to regular activities the next day, in some cases.


Dr. Carlos Manrique, a board-certified ophthalmologist who has performed more than 50,000 laser vision correction procedures, even offers virtual consultations.

Manrique Custom Vision Center is open and is doing its part to keep its patients and staff safe.

The vision center has enhanced its procedures with the following measures:

  • The staff is wearing masks and gloves.
  • Patients are screened with a temperature check once at their appointment.
  • Social distancing is practiced, with people staying 6 feet apart.
  • Everything that is touched is sterilized by the staff.
