More About Vision Correction at International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center
The latest laser platforms and equipment, including advanced wavefront technology, are used at International EyeCare to enhance safety and efficacy during LASIK surgery. This state-of-the-art facility features an advanced excimer laser and sophisticated diagnostic technology. Specific components of each device used are selected based on the individual patient's particular needs.
Wavefront technology is used to make a map of the patient's eye that details even the smallest imperfections in corneal shape. This map helps Dr. Moore customize the LASIK procedure and deliver safe, accurate results. The information gleaned from the map is used to calibrate the surgical laser that reshapes the corneal tissue and corrects the refractive error.
During LASIK, a small flap is created in the surface of the eye and gently folded back to expose the underlying cornea. If an all-laser approach is being employed, a femtosecond laser will create the flap. Otherwise, a surgical blade is used. Based on the specifics of each patient's vision correction needs, Dr. Moore makes a recommendation as to whether traditional or all-laser LASIK will yield better results. He uses an excimer laser to eliminate the irregularities that cause refractive error and visual problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Once the cornea has been reshaped to the surgeon's liking, the flap is carefully replaced, where it seals itself and the eye is able to heal naturally.
Houston LASIK patients typically notice an improvement in their vision within one to two days after the surgery. Many enjoy freedom from dependence on glasses or corrective lenses for the first time in many years, and are able to achieve 20/20 vision or better.
What Do Patients Say About International EyeCare?
"I've been wearing glasses and contacts for 25 years and the thought of LASIK surgery was a bit unsettling. But after meeting with and talking to Dr. Moore and his staff, I quickly realized I should have done this years ago. The results have been tremendous. My vision is much better than it ever was before. The freedom from glasses and contacts is a very welcome change, I love my new vision!" Adam Wexler
"Just had my last post-LASIK follow-up this morning, and I'm seeing three lines BETTER than 20/20! Words can't describe how amazing it is to have such great vision without glasses or contacts. Immeasurable THANKS to your staff for such fantastic care!" Amanda S.
"The entire staff and procedure went way beyond my expectations. The surgery was simply amazing and the personal commitment the staff has to the patients is remarkable. Again I was 'blown away' by my new vision and on how the entire staff acted. Keep up the great work!!!!" Robert Logan
"Freedom!! After 37 years of being tied to glasses (first thing on in the morning, last thing off at night), I'm finally free to purchase (and lose) stylish sunglasses. I'm able to see a golf ball on the green, and to take photos without glass reflection. Freedom!!!" Tom Voth
