More About Vision Correction at Austin Eye
Austin Eye offers a range of other eye care services.
At Austin Eye LASIK is performed using the all-laser IntraLASIK surgery (custom iLASIK) technique. This procedure combines leading-edge diagnostic equipment with bladeless LASIK technology for customized treatments and optimal vision correction results and safety.
To perform iLASIK surgery, the eye surgeons at Austin Eye first use a wavefront measurement device to obtain a unique corneal map of each eye that identifies even the most subtle refractive errors. Next, a femtosecond laser is used to create the corneal flap. Then the detailed wavefront map is used to guide an excimer laser, which reshapes the cornea, thereby bringing clear vision into focus. Following surgery, the corneal flap is placed in its original position to protect the eye during the healing process. Patients who undergo custom iLASIK often experience improved vision within the next 24 hours and are able to see better at all distances, often without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
What Do Patients Say About the Eye Surgeons of Austin Eye Clinic?
"Fantastic finally doctors, nurses and staff who care! Austin Eye is really a first class operation. I went to Dr. John Odette and got LASIK and I ran in a half marathon two days later without glasses or contacts. It is incredible. I would highly recommend them...At Austin Eye Dr. Odette took my measurements, answered all of my questions and remembered exactly who I was. They are everything you want in a doctor's office." Alex C.
"I've been going to Dr. Shannon Wong for over 5 years. He's extremely good. I have a couple of eye conditions that he monitors that have a variety of treatment options. He's very up front about what the risks and costs are. He's consoled me to hold off on a specific procedure that might help my vision until he's sure it will help. He's extremely competent, explains everything very thoroughly and treats you like you're an intelligent participant in your own eye care. Additionally, he's just a nice guy. His nursing staff is also very competent and friendly..." Marc S.
"I don't tend to splurge much...But sometimes you have to loosen the old money belt and make a big purchase. I did so almost two years ago to get LASIK at the Austin Eye Clinic, and it was well worth the fairly hefty price. I'm so glad I had my LASIK. No, "glad" isn't strong enough. I'm delighted. It has definitely improved the quality of my life, and how often can you say that about a purchase?...
Dr. Shannon Wong was great. He clearly knows his stuff, and he's pleasant yet efficient. And adorably, you get a Polaroid photo of you with Dr. Wong taken immediately post-surgery. Too cute. Best of all, Dr. Wong signs it for you like he's a rock star. And you know what--he IS a rock star in my book...
Check out the Austin Eye Clinic Web site. It gives a very thorough explanation of what LASIK is...it's very useful information if you're considering the surgery. Or just make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Wong and let him explain it..." Debbie R.
