More About Carolina Vision Center's Surgery Center

Dr. Woodcock is the medical director and chief surgeon of the Carolina Vision Center's Surgery Center. He personally handpicks and trains each staff member to provide the highest quality care. For LASIK surgery, he uses the VISX Star S4 wavefront guided and Allegretto custom laser systems. Each eye has a unique curvature, which is like the "fingerprint" of the eye. The VISX system provides a highly accurate measure of this eye fingerprint and creates a customized laser beam to correct each eye individually. Dr. Woodcock also offers PRK for laser vision correction of nearsightedness and CK surgery (conductive keratoplasty) for the correction of presbyopia.

Carolina Vision Center is now one of approximately five vision care clinics in the United States and the only clinic in the state of North Carolina to offer the Da Vinci Bladeless LASIK procedure. With the state-of-the-art Da Vinci laser, LASIK is now safer, more advanced and more accurate than ever. Patients experience a faster healing period and quicker visual recovery with the bladeless procedure when compared to traditional LASIK and even other bladeless LASIK methods.


Allegretto laser

For patients with extreme cases of nearsightedness, Carolina Vision Center now offers the Visian Implantable Contact Lens as well. This invisible lens works in a similar manner to a traditional contact lens, but it is implanted inside of the eye and not placed on top of the eye. Therefore, the lens requires no maintenance, and it is more permanent and more convenient than glasses or contact lenses. A meticulous examination is provided to determine the best option for vision correction surgery.
