More About Laser Eye Surgery with the Philadelphia Eye Associates
Each patient undergoes a thorough examination to determine the best option for refractive surgery. Dr. Blecher performs custom-wavefront-guided LASIK. This procedure provides a highly accurate measurement of the corneal curvature, and then creates an individualized laser ablation profile to correct each eye. The newest IOLs (intraocular lens) technology is also available, featuring the ReSTOR lens (to simultaneously correct for near, intermediate, and distance vision). Dr. Blecher uses the most advanced "no needle" " no stitch" and "no patch" lens implant surgical technique.
Philadelphia Eye Associates is also a comprehensive eye care facility offering the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, known as oculoplastic surgery, is offered in addition to Botox and Obagi skin care. All of the Philadelphia Eye Surgeons have received rigorous medical and surgical training at either Scheie Eye Institute or Wills Eye Hospital.
