Dr. Collins has been a leader in bringing the best diagnostic and treatment technology to the southwest Florida region. The Orbscan instrument, which provides a three-dimensional map of the cornea, is used to determine if a patient is a good candidate for surgery. For LASIK, the Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217z with Zyoptix wavefront-guided excimer laser system is used. This newest generation flying spot/true scanning laser is designed to increase accuracy and produce an extremely smooth corneal surface, promoting faster healing and resulting in better vision. More LASIK procedures are performed with Technolas lasers worldwide than with any other system. In addition, Dr. Collins offers 100 percent blade-free LASIK surgery using the advanced IntraLase method, which allows many patients who were not candidates for LASIK to achieve visual freedom.
Dr. Collins also offers ASA (advanced surface ablation) for patients who may not be good candidates for LASIK. Dr. Collins also implants the newest technology IOLs (intraocular lenses), including AcrySof ReSTOR lenses (which simultaneously correct for near and distance vision) and Verisyse ICLs (which help patients with high myopia who do not qualify for LASIK). Dr. Collins also offers the revolutionary Crystalens IOL, an accommodating lens that allows patients to seamlessly transition from near to distant objects.
Dr. Collins' expertise extends beyond refractive surgery. He performs state-of-the-art, no-stitch, no-injection cataract surgery and the most advanced management and treatment for glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes and retinal disease.
