WHAT IS LASIK?
Our philosophy is simple. As an LASIK specialty center, our role is to bring together the three elements of laser vision correction to give you the best chance of achieving better than 20/20 vision. The key elements include the pre-operative evaluation, the technology used for your lasik procedure and most importantly, the surgeon's skill and personal experience.

Your Pre-Operative Vision Evaluation
The Orbscan gives a 3-dimensional view of the cornea to highlight astigmatism and possible abnormalities.
Your pre-operative vision evaluation at Newman Lasik Centers is likely to be the most thourough eye exam you've had. After all, we want to know everything about your vision to maximize the safety and result of your laser vision correction. This is accomplished using multiple technologies including Bausch and Lomb Orb scan corneal analysis system. This device creates a 3-dimentional view of the tissue treated with the laser. The instrument acquires over 9000 datapoints relating to the archetecture of the cornea and allows the surgeon to taylor a treatment specifically for each eye based on its thickness, curvature and overall dimentions.
All patients undergoing laser vision correction with Dr. Newman will have a complete ocular evaluation including a cycloplegic refraction and dilated pupil exam. These are two important elements of the critical first step in evaluating your visual pathway. The only way to truely assess your ocular health and determine if your eye is healthy enough to support laser vision correction is to visualize the retina (inner surface of the eye) through a dilated pupil. During this portion of the exam your prescription is re-measured to minimize any chance of over-correction. This allows a surgeon to accurately gauge levels of astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness and presbyopia.
Fourier Based Wavefront Measurement
During the past few years, new and more refined techniques in laser vision correction have increased the safety and precision of the procedure. Wavefront technology allows surgeons to measure a person's refractive errror or prescription with increased accuracy which can be especially important for low light vision. To date, most experts would agree the most precise measurement of prescription is acquired with a Fourier based wavefront algorithm. All of Dr. Newman's patients are evaluated with this technology. This added detail about a person's individual refractive error is used to create a laser ablation profile which is unique to that particular eye which Dr. Newman uses to reshape the corneal curvature. True wavefront measurements are 25 times more precise than the measurements typically used to prescribe glasses or contacts.This technology can be especially helpful in patients who have problems with night vision.
True Wavefront Technology
True wavefront technology is not to be confused with "wavefront optimized" technology which does not directly measure a person's individual wavefront error. It instead relies on a treatment algorithm which blends the peripheral untreated cornea with the treated central cornea, and applies the same treatment to all patients. The simple difference between this technology and true wavefront measurement based technology is that the latter accurately measures an individual's higher order aberrations and creates the MOST detailed ablation profile possible for that particular eye. In general, the more detail you have about a person's prescription, the more accurate the correction will be leading to an increased probability of achieving the best vision possible. This can be especially helpful when trying to maximize night vision.
True Wavefront Technology
Lastly, and most importantly, we tailor the results to your individual needs. Our experience in identifying and targeting your visual potential with your visual requirements are designed to get you the most visual freedom with your customized lasik procedure. We realize vision is very personal and provide a one on one environment with the surgeon. With a 20 year career dedicated exclusively to laser vision correction and the personal experience of over 80,000 procedures, rest assured Dr. Newman has seen your individual prescription many times in the past. Couple this with vision technology that measures your vision 25 times more precisely than the exams you've had in the past for your glasses or contacts and you've got the foundation for the best results possible. In fact, FDA clinical trials of the Visx Customview laser system showed 98% of patients could see 20/20 or better and 100% could see 20/40 one year after their procedure, and four times as many participants reported improvement in their night vision compaired to glasses or contacts.
