Dr. Steensma works closely with two of the best "Refractive Surgeons" in California.

  • Dr. Paul Dogherty performs refractive surgery at the Dougherty Laser Center in Camarillo.
  • Dr. John Davidson performs refractive surgery at the NVision Laser Eye Center in Camarillo.  

Both doctors offer a very special service that most refractive surgeons do not offer.   If you see Dr. Steensma every year for your annual eye examinations, and your eyes change requiring another LASIK procedure, it will be free.

Dr. Steensma will provide much of the pre-surgical and post-surgical care. Optometric participation is beneficial for the patient, the optometrist and the surgeon. For the patient, continuity of care is maintained and eye care becomes more convenient and accessible. Co-management affords Dr. Steensma the opportunity to maintain his role as primary eye care provider during and after the procedure. He will do the pre-op exam and then provide follow you care for a year after the surgery. The surgeon is allowed to work at his highest skill level doing surgery, not follow up visits.

Currently there are 4 types of refractive surgery:

  • PRK (Photo-Refractive-Keratectomy)
  • LASIK (Laser-In-Situ-Keratomileusis)
  • ICL (Implantable-Contact-Lens)
  • Clear Lensectomy
