At Laser Eye Center of Miami, Drs. Gabriel Lazcano and Abraham Awad are dedicated to providing their patients with state-of-the-art medical care in a friendly and caring environment. Between them, they have decades of collective experience using LASIK surgery to give their patients 20/20 or better vision, freeing them from the hassle of living dependent on glasses and contacts. They have helped thousands of patients using the latest LASIK surgical method, a bladeless procedure that uses lasers to re-sculpt the eye's cornea so that it better refracts light on the retina, resulting in clearer vision. This bladeless LASIK procedure is the safest and most precise refractive surgery used today, and the entire procedure lasts less than 20 minutes, after which the patient will notice an immediate improvement in vision and be able to resume normal daily life the following day.
In addition to providing the finest care in refractive surgery, Dr. Lazcano is a skilled cataract surgeon offering the latest intraocular lenses. This includes the AcrySof ReSTOR multifocal lens, which simultaneously corrects both reading and distance vision and the AcrySof IQ Toric intraocular lens, which corrects astigmatism. The Laser Eye Center of Miami is a comprehensive eye care facility offering glaucoma diagnosis, treatment and surgery (using the Selecta II Laser), pterygium surgery and oculoplastic surgery.
