What Do Patients Say About Bruce January?

"I would highly recommend anyone to Dr. January! Very fun guy, makes you feel at ease. Thank you so much for educating me and giving my vision back! So life changing!" —Sandy

"I was very concerned about the procedure, and Dr. January spent extra time answering all my questions. His follow-up care was outstanding. Would recommend to everyone."

Prior to LASIK surgery, Dr. January utilizes wavefront-guided technology to pinpoint his patient's refractive errors. By using this sophisticated technology, he is able to identify higher order aberrations (tiny, nearly imperceptible vision errors). Dr. January utilizes the diagnostic data that he has compiled to calibrate an excimer laser that he will use during LASIK surgery to reshape the cornea.

To begin the LASIK procedure, the laser eye surgeon creates a tiny flap in the patient's cornea, using a surgical blade called a microkeratome. Dr. January then employs the excimer laser to re-contour the corneal tissue that lies underneath the lifted flap. In this manner, he corrects the refractive error that is causing the patient to be nearsighted, farsighted and/or astigmatic. Once the surgeon feels that the cornea has been sufficiently reshaped, he repositions the corneal flap in the original position, where it will naturally bond to the eye again.

LASIK Houston patients who undergo laser vision correction with Dr. January do not typically feel any pain during LASIK surgery. In addition, 98 percent of individuals treated with LASIK using VISX technology achieve 20/20 vision or better within a year following the procedure. Many patients also find that they no longer need contact lenses or prescription glasses to see clearly.
