Houston Eye what is lasik

 

LASIK Surgery in Houston

Custom Wavefront Lasik is the procedure of choice by experienced refractive surgeons around the world. LASIK is an acronym for Laser In-situ Keratomileusis, which means, “to shape the cornea within using a laser.”

Before the recent advancements in technology, eye doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision, meaning that prescriptions could only provide a certain level of correction regardless of an individual’s needs. Now, they can measure and correct the unique imperfections of each individual’s vision and provide them with the potential to experience better vision than is possible with glasses or contact lenses. Our Houston LASIK surgeons can now treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea (the transparent dome covering of the eye) to refocus light rays more precisely on the retina.

Wavelight Allegretto – The Most Advanced Laser System

There is always new technology under investigation. That is why the experienced eye surgeons of International LCV-Wave-Eye-Q-300x239EyeCare are continuously involved in FDA studies and have been recognized for their contributions by their colleagues as leading LASIK experts.

Because of our dedication to providing our patients with the highest level of technology, we own our Excimer laser and all the latest, sophisticated diagnostic equipment. After a thorough evaluation, we match each patient to the right combination of technology in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q Laser System

In its ongoing commitment to the highest standards and most advanced technology, International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center proudly presents the WaveLight Allegretto Excimer Laser System, the latest generation Excimer laser technology available today. Wavefront guided technology is the recognized platform for performing custom laser vision correction procedures, and the WaveLight laser system was the first laser platform specifically designed for wavefront LASIK, rather than being adapted for Wavefront guided LASIK as with other excimer systems.

Currently, the ALLEGRETTO WAVE Eye-Q is the fastest vision correction laser for LASIK available in the United States. At 400 laser bursts per second, it takes only about two seconds of treatment to correct one diopter. Of course, spending less time under the laser means less stress and discomfort for the patient.

International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center is a leading provider of laser vision correction treatment and has been recognized nationwide as a top ophthalmology practice. Having performed more than 80,000 vision correction procedures, Drs. Charles Moore and Louis Binder have helped numerous Houston cataract surgery and LASIK patients achieve the clear vision they deserve. The doctors also treat Houston keratoconus patients.
