We’re located at 16150 NE 85th Street, Suite 219, Redmond, WA 98052.
If you’re coming from the northwest, head south on I-405 S, then take exit 18 for N E 85th St toward Kirkland. Keep left at the first fork, and right at the second to merge onto NE 85th St. Just after you merge, you should see Lee Johnson Chevrolet on your right. Continue down the road, even after it turns into Redmond Way, for 2.9 miles, then turn left onto 161st Avenue Northeast/Lampaert Lane. You’ll see 5 Stones Coffee Co soon afterwards on your right. Continue for a few more hundred feet, then turn right into a lot. At your first opportunity to do each, turn right, then left, then left again. We’ll be in the building directly ahead.
If you’re coming from the south, head north on WA-520 E, then take the West Lake Sammamish Parkway Northeast exit. When the road dead-ends just ahead, turn left onto West Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE. In a few hundred feet, you’ll pass Bangkok Basil on your left; about a hundred feet after that, keep right onto 154th Ave NE. Follow the road for 0.6 miles, then turn right onto NE 85th St. In about 0.2 miles, you’ll pass River Trail Roasters on your right. Another 0.3 miles from there, turn left, then head straight back as far as you can into the lot. We’ll be in the building straight ahead.

Here are some of the ways patients have told us that their lives improved after receiving LASIK surgery at our Redmond eye surgery center:

LASIK FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Like any procedure related to your health, you're bound to have questions and concerns about the process of getting laser eye surgery. Here are the answers to some of the questions that we hear most often:
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASIK?
At King LASIK Tri-Cities, we consider you a baseline candidate for laser corrective eye surgery if you fit the following characteristics:
- You’re at least 19
- You’ve had a stable vision prescription for at least a year
- You’ve been diagnosed with astigmatism, myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness)
If these three conditions fit you as a patient, we’ll set up a LASIK consultation to explore the possibility of this life-changing surgery in a deeper way. First, we’ll do scans of your corneas to measure thickness and build a virtual map of your eyes. If your cornea is thick enough and our precise scans don’t find any conditions or imperfections that would present added risk during the LASIK operation, we’ll make sure you’re informed about LASIK and set up a time for the procedure to be done if that’s what you choose.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
With modern technology and a bladeless surgery (like the one offered at King LASIK Tri-Cities) your LASIK surgery will be quick, easy, and painless. Laser surgery typically takes about 10 minutes to complete, and after around a day of recovery time, you’ll be able to enjoy 20/20 vision from now on.
Other considerations with recovery from LASIK surgery:
- You may experience some discomfort for the next 12 to 24 hours
- You may be asked to use special eye drops
- Complications are rare but if you experience anything out of the ordinary, it can be easily treated
WHAT DOES LASIK COST?
There is no set cost for LASIK, but it is more expensive than wearing glasses or contacts. It’s a good investment, however, since after LASIK, costs associated with corrective eyewear and accessories will usually drop to zero.
Many patients want to know if LASIK is covered by their insurance. While some vision policies may cover it or partner with LASIK surgeons for discounts, it typically is regarded as an “elective” procedure by insurers, and as such, not covered.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A LASIK SURGEON?
The ideal laser eye surgeon has experience, access to the latest surgical equipment, and is able to put patients at ease by explaining each and every step of a LASIK surgery. At King LASIK Tri-Cities, our
