What Do Patients Say About Dr. Roberts?
"Their office was well organized and clean. I could tell they took a lot of time making sure it was presentable. I was in awe at the level of service I received. I will absolutely be going back. They went out of their way to make me feel special and respected, and were very sympathetic to my situation. I will absolutely return."
"I had the PRK corrective surgery last October 2012. Yesterday was the second visit after the surgery to check my vision and they were 20/20. All things had been set up and done so quick and easy. Very professional and well organized staff from the moment they answered my call for the first time until I left my last check up visit. Dr. Roberts explained everything to me about this surgery and the differences between the PRK and LASIK. I really want to thank Dr. Anthony and his staff for their help and the time they spent with me to get my vision perfect. Will recommended to anyone looking for vision correction."
Prior to starting the LASIK procedure, Dr. Roberts uses the wavefront computer-guided system to diagnose the patient's refractive errors. By utilizing this sophisticated machine, he is able to distinguish even the most subtle of refractive errors, including higher order aberrations, the most difficult refractive errors to diagnose. The laser eye surgeon will then use this diagnostic information to calibrate the excimer laser that he will use to re-contour individuals' corneas during surgery.
To start LASIK surgery, Dr. Roberts uses a surgical instrument with a thin blade, called a microkeratome, to incise a small flap in the cornea. He then gently pulls back the flap, revealing corneal tissue underneath. Next, he utilizes the excimer laser to reshape this tissue, treating the refractive error that is causing farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism in the process. Once Dr. Roberts is content with the newly modified cornea, he replaces the corneal flap in its original position. There, the corneal flap will naturally re-bond to the eye without any need for stitches.
Dr. Robert's Philadelphia LASIK patients do not feel any pain during surgery. In addition, they are happy to hear that approximately 98 percent of LASIK patients who undergo the procedure using VISX technology at The LASIK Vision Institute™ attain 20/20 vision or better within the first year after LASIK surgery. Often, treated individuals no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses to see clearly.
