Bernitsky Vision is committed to helping patients achieve excellent vision correction results for a lifetime—even our patients who move and patients who received LASIK treatment elsewhere but now require care in Albuquerque. That’s what it means to be a participating provider in the Vision for Life network of LASIK doctors.

Albuquerque Vision for Life Plan Options

The Vision for Life plan allows patients who had LASIK eye surgery performed by Dr. Bernitsky to receive LASIK enhancements* at no cost by any Vision for Life surgeon around the country.

Patients are automatically enrolled in the Vision for Life plan when they choose the Z-LASIK lifetime option from the Dr. Bernitsky at Bernitsky Vision. We will have you sign an acknowledgement form and provide the Vision for Life Passport (used to track follow-up appointments and enhancements) and program guidelines, and that’s all it takes.
