Accredited LASIK Surgery Suite

Dr. D's attention to detail is exemplified in his design of the Lasik Suite. The VISX laser sits on a beautiful marble floor, surrounded by accent lights, a giant Italian Tapestry and original art work. Most people are not aware that the VISX laser must be operated within a specific range of environmental conditions. To ensure consistent performance of the laser, Dr. D set up the Lasik Suite with an independent air conditioner system, a dedicated air purifier and a computer system that constantly records the air temperature and humidity. This system ensures excellent air quality in the Lasik Suite at all times. Dr. D added a backup power supply which ensures the completion of all refractive procedures, even in the event of a power surge or power outage.

Inventions

Dr. D invented a computerized Electronic Medical Records System to maximize Lasik outcomes by providing unlimited access to critical data during the Lasik procedure. There are five large computer displays in the Lasik Suite that Dr. D uses to monitor all facets of the refractive process. This technology dramatically improves the safety of all refractive procedures performed at SEECA.

Dr. D also invented a patent-pending device called the "Laser Guided True Scan" that dramatically improves the calculated lens power used during lens exchange refractive surgery.

Experience

Since founding SEECA in 1998, Dr. D has performed thousands of surgeries including refractive, cataract, glaucoma, laser and plastic surgery. Dr. D has always prided himself on excellence in surgery and is constantly striving to improve his results.

More About SEECA

Dr. D. and his staff at SEECA have been specially trained to use the latest technologies in the ophthalmic field. When performing LASIK, Dr. D uses the CustomVue procedure, which combines the VISX S4 Excimer Laser and the WaveScan Wavefront System to provide a customized solution.

The WaveScan Wavefront System creates a detailed map of the eye that is 25 times more precise than the measurements used by conventional lasers. This map is used to create an individualized set of instructions for the VISX S4 Excimer Laser that is unique to each person (much like a fingerprint). By using the WaveScan Wavefront System, Dr. D is able to provide his LASIK patients with an unparalleled level of accuracy and customization that far exceeds other laser platforms.

What Do Patients Say About Dr. de la Houssaye?


Dr. D. with Paul Fairless

Paul Fairless, Florida...
"I flew in from Florida because I heard Dr. D and SEECA were the best. After the amazing vision I have now, I must say that Dr. D and the team at SEECA exceeded my expectations."

From a 14 year old patient...
"I think Dr. D is very nice. I'm 14 years old and I love the care I receive from everyone in his office. Dr. D likes to take his time and show concern to his patients. I was transferred to this office. I don't think I could have found a better doctor."

Highly recommended...
"I would recommend him to all of my family and friends who wear glasses or contacts. His staff is extremely courteous and knowledgeable and his interior decor is stunning."

R.R. Dallas, Texas...
"I have to give a shout out to the doctor who did my lasik surgery. He is the best eye doctor in the world. I can say that without dispute because he fixed my eyes. Dr. A. J. dela Houssaye IV "Dr. D" is the medical director for Seeca Eye Clinic in Houma, LA. This guy is like no other doctor I have met in my 12 years of being a paramedic. Dr. D is so personal, and friendly and real. His staff are all so kind and it is really shocking to see people working in a doctor's office to be so nice. Dr. D treats every patient as he would his own family.


Dr. D. with R. R.

I had my operation in May of 2008,
"Two days after the surgery I could see 20/15 with some blurriness. It has now been 7 months and I can see 20/13 with no problems. You are welcome to watch the video below to view the operation. I will warn you that if you are sensitive to medical procedures you may want to skip it. I think I look horrible in the video, but just remember; I was a little bit nervous.

I had been suffering from sever headaches for about a year. I knew something was wrong with my glasses or contacts and visited a local eye doctor several times; just for her to tell me everything is ok. That didn't stop the headaches and the pressure I was having on my eyes. I was seriously worried there was a major problem. A friend, Mark, told me about Dr. D. He took me to see him and without an appointment Dr. D evaluated me the same day. He agreed the issue was probably related to me changing from contacts to glasses frequently and suggested lasik surgery. I was a little nervous about it, I mean I only have two eyes and as with any surgery there is a possibility of something going wrong. I asked Dr. D how many times he has had a complication with the surgery. He told me his criteria was very strict and if I didn't pass his test not to go and find someone to do it anyway, so I agreed. I turned out to be a candidate for the surgery, so we continued with the testing. I was so impressed with the surgery that I told everyone about it. I even sent my brother to Dr. D for lasik surgery, as his birthday present for 2008. It has changed his life also. Living without glasses is such a wonderful freedom. So my brother and I have brand new eye balls thanks to Dr. D.

To anyone out there interested in lasik surgery, don't go anywhere else. Visit Dr. D in Houma, LA, he is the best, its well worth the trip. The personal care Dr. D gives to each patient is genuine and sincere. He enjoys his work and he hasn't had a complication. Dr. D's work speaks for itself."

From a patient with children...
"I am very pleased with the way ya'll made my five and four year olds feel for their first visit to an eye doctor."

About the courteous staff...
"I am very satisfied with the glasses my son received. I am amazed with the things that he could not see before. The staff was very pleasant and courteous. It was an overall good experience - I was expecting it to be stressful. Thank you all."

Very professional...
"Your staff is very professional in what you do. All businesses should be run in this professional manner. Thank you all for your service."

I can see...
"Brian and I had Lasik surgery last Friday. We had it done at SEECA in Houma. If anyone is thinking about doing it, I highly recommend that you do. If you do, go to SEECA. I was extremely nervous and the staff at SEECA went out of their way to make me comfortable. A tech even came in and held my hand. My vision pre-op was 20/400. The day after my vision had improved to 20/20. It's amazing!"
