Leading-Edge Treatments with Advanced Technologies
Joffe MediCenter is equipped with state-of-the-art laser technologies. Dr. Chaknis and his team begin each treatment by using the Orbscan and custom wavefront analyzers to develop a very detailed 3-D map of the cornea. They use this map to determine whether the patient is a candidate for LASIK, and to customize each LASIK treatment so that it corrects the unique imperfections of each patient's corneas.
The next step of LASIK eye surgery is the creation of the corneal flap. Dr. Chaknis creates the flap with the Bausch & Lomb Zyoptix XP microkeratome. Once the flap is created, it is lifted to expose the underlying corneal tissues for excimer laser treatment.
Joffe MediCenter features several excimer laser platforms, including the Alcon Allegretto Wave excimer laser and the Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217z Zyoptix system. Dr. Chaknis uses these lasers to reshape the corneas so that they refract light rays correctly. This results in clear images being sent to the brain, which in turn leads to clear vision at various distances. By using an array of sophisticated diagnostic and surgical instruments, Dr. Chaknis is able to help nearsighted, farsighted and astigmatic patients realize their dreams of sharp vision without glasses.
At Joffe, it is our commitment to make LASIK affordable and accessible. With multiple financing plans to fit any budget, your per eye payments can be as low as approximately $1 per day!
