More About Vision Correction at Eye Care Specialists
Eye Care Specialists' surgical facilities house some of the most advanced ophthalmic technologies available, including laser eye surgery equipment used in LASIK. Prior to the procedure, the surgeons use the VISX WaveScan wavefront mapping system to generate a customized map showing the eye's imperfections; this map is used to calibrate the excimer laser prior to treatment. Wavefront technology provides up to 25 times more precision than traditional eye scans.
In addition to LASIK, the surgeons offer the newest IOLs (intraocular lenses), including AcrySof ReSTOR®, AcrySof Toric and ReZoom IOLs™. For the treatment of cataracts, the surgeons at Eye Care Specialists use an advanced small-incision cataract surgery method that does not require needles or stitches. The center also offers retina surgery, glaucoma and macular degeneration treatment, and various oculoplastic procedures, such as eyelid surgery.
