More About Willis-Falkenberg Eye Center
Each patient at Willis-Falkenberg Eye Center is meticulously examined to determine the best option for vision correction. For LASIK surgery, the VISX Star S4-IR custom wavefront excimer laser technology with Iris Registration is used. This wavefront-guided system provides for a precise measurement of each patient's eye. Then, this "fingerprint" is programmed into the excimer laser so that each eye is treated with a customized laser profile. To create the corneal flap, the "All Laser LASIK" or "Blade Free LASIK" procedure is used, which is called Intralase. The advanced laser technology, in combination with Drs. Falkenberg and Hudson's extensive experience, provides for excellent surgical results.
In addition to LASIK surgery, PRK and LASEK laser vision correction are also offered. Drs. Falkenberg and Hudson also perform refractive lens exchange with some of the most advanced intraocular lens implants (IOLs), including ReSTOR and ReZoom lenses, which simultaneously correct for near and distance vision.
