Tired of clunky prescription lenses?

Weary of the inconvenience and expense of contact lenses?

State of The Art Technology

The doctors at Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center look at state-of-the-art technology as an investment in your future. LASIK advanced laser vision correction surgeons Dr. James Mattax, Dr. Thomas Prater, and Dr. Jacob Thomas continually monitor and evaluate advances in technology, so it should be no surprise that Mattax Neu Prater is the very first to introduce the new iFS laser to Southwest Missouri.

The iFS laser brings unprecedented speed, control, and precision to the “all-laser” bladeless LASIK vision correction procedure. LASIK is now more comfortable than ever before!

Millions of Americans are less dependent on eyeglasses or contact lenses, thanks to LASIK. However, fear has caused millions more to avoid or postpone experiencing the benefits of LASIK.

If you are one of them, LASIK at Mattax Neu Prater may be right for you! Bladeless, all-laser LASIK makes the procedure even safer, more precise, and more comfortable and has given many of our patients the confidence they need to finally get the vision of their dreams.

The Mattax Neu Prater LASIK Advantage

Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center is different than other LASIK centers.

  • Drs. James B. Mattax Jr., Thomas G. Prater, and Dr. Jacob Thomas are board-certified refractive surgeons who have performed a combined total of more than 26,000 LASIK procedures.
  • Unlike eye surgeons who move from one volume LASIK discount center’s assembly line to another, Drs. Mattax, Prater, and Thomas are available to tend to your individual needs before, during, and after your vision correction procedure.
  • The surgeons at Mattax Neu Prater are dedicated to providing the added safety and precision of state-of-the-art bladeless, all-laser LASIK advanced laser vision correction technology.

Without a precise diagnostic workup, even the best LASIK laser cannot give you the accurate results you have a right to expect. Mattax Neu Prater uses precision Orbscan® 3-D mapping and WaveScan WaveFront™ diagnostic technology.

Brian Edwards Testimonial

Brian Edwards Testimonial

“I noticed an immediate change in my vision. The minute I got off the table I saw the numbers on the clock. I turned and looked at the faces in the room with me and could see details in their faces. I could see clearly for the first time in thirty years. It was an emotional experience. I actually cried, because it’s like being healed. I felt very blessed.”
