Each patient is examined and evaluated carefully. Two excimer laser platforms are available for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism: the VISX Star S4 and Allegretto WaveLight. Each laser is equipped with sophisticated eye-tracking technology to precisely track the eye while the laser changes the corneal shape. The availability of these lasers allows the surgeon to choose the best option for your refractive surgery. In addition to LASIK, he and his medical team offer PRK surgery.
