Long have Ophthalmologists pushed the limits of achieving better vision for patients. Even in the 1950’s Ophthalmologists were experimenting with surgical correction to eliminate the need for corrective lens. The first lasers were used in Ophthalmology in the 1980’s in an attempt to correct refractive errors, lessening the dependence of patients on glasses and contact lens. LASIK took the entire world by storm and since it’s popularity in the 1990’s well over 30 million LASIK procedures have been performed world-wide. Lasers traditionally used in LASIK are now far superior to their previous generation and allow us to correct even more astigmatism and other refractive errors to a greater degree than previous. Our Allegretto laser and LenSx laser are the latest state of the art lasers that allow our surgeons to achieve better visual outcomes with our LASIK procedure than ever before. In fact, compared to older methods of LASIK, our technology allows us to offer the entire procedure completely “blade-free”, further enhancing the safety and efficacy of LASIK issues even more.
