More About Vision Correction With Dr. Maurino

Dr. Maurino recognizes that using the latest technologies for laser eye surgery allows him to provide customized vision correction procedures and extremely precise surgical outcomes. With this in mind, his leading-edge practice is equipped with the IntraLase IFS 150 femtosecond laser for use in creating corneal flaps, the exceptionally fast Schwind Amaris 750S excimer laser and the wavefront-guided VISX S4 excimer laser.

Before beginning LASIK vision correction treatment, Dr. Maurino utilizes wavefront imaging technology to create a unique map of the eye's topography, including nearly imperceptible refractive errors called "higher-order aberrations." He uses this data to calibrate the excimer laser used to re-contour the cornea.

To begin the LASIK procedure, the laser eye surgeon uses the femtosecond laser to create a very small flap in the cornea. He carefully pulls back the flap to reveal the corneal tissue below. Dr. Maurino then uses the programmed excimer laser to remove microscopic flecks of corneal tissue, thereby reshaping the curvature of the cornea. This corrects the patient's refractive error that is causing the vision problem. Once Dr. Maurino is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, he gently repositions the corneal flap back in its initial location, where it naturally heals without the need for stitches.

Individuals who receive LASIK treatment from Dr. Maurino are happy to find that it is a generally painless procedure. They are also happy to notice a dramatic improvement in their vision within one to two days following surgery. In many cases, individuals no longer need to rely on contact lenses or glasses to see well; over 99 percent of LASIK patients even achieve 20/20 vision following the procedure.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. Maurino?

"Dr. Maurino was extremely thorough in the preliminary assessment and highly courteous through the laser treatment. I felt very safe in his care and the result is excellent." —Michelle M.

"The best recommendation I can say is that I would let Dr. Maurino operate on my son if and when his eyes need doing. He is professional and very thorough. I would not use anyone else. Superb back up to the point he asks you to text him how your eyes are 24 hours after surgery." —John Tarquin T.

"I felt nervous about having wavefront surgery on both eyes as a long term contact lenses wearer but I was in the very capable care of Mr. Maurino who put my mind at ease. He was highly recommended to me as one of the best in his profession. The procedure was quick and painless with a brilliant follow up of after care. I now have perfect vision which has transformed my life." —Julia P.
