LASIK TECHNOLOGY True Wavefront and (All Laser) Lasik
Advanced LASIK Technology in Sacramento, Daly City, and San Francisco Bay Area
The development of excimer lasers and Wavefront™ LASIK in recent years gives Dr. Leonard Newman the ability to provide patients with even better LASIK results. At Newman LASIK Center we use the VISX systems for laser eye surgery at our Sacramento, Daly City, and San Francisco Bay area offices. Dr. Leonard has extensive experience with this laser and has been instrumental in making these advances in LASIK available for use. This innovative technology in laser eye surgery can change the way you live your life. Finally, you won't need to worry about sand, the wind, or other irritants getting in your contacts and scratching your eyes. And you can say goodbye to yet another hunt for your lost glasses.
The CustomVue™ VISX ActiveTrak™ laser system promotes faster healing and better vision. Utilizing this technology, Dr. Newman is able to track your eye movements throughout the treatment, allowing him more control during the procedure. The ActiveTrak laser systems by VISX have seven different sized beams. This gives Dr. Newman the ability to precisely shape your cornea according to the imperfections unique to your eyes. Laser eye surgery with the VISX system at our Sacramento, Daly City, and San Francisco Bay area facilities can be completed in a matter of minutes. Contact the Newman LASIK Center today to see if you would be a good candidate for this vision correction treatment.
Bausch and Lomb Orbscan System
Bausch and Lomb Orbscan is a diagnostic system that scans all surfaces of the cornea to produce exact measurements of your visual system. This allows for customized LASIK results so you can see the world more clearly. If you are interested in learning more about Orbscan and VISX systems of laser eye surgery, contact us about LASIK in Sacramento, Daly City, or San Francisco Bay area today for a consultation.
Thin Flap Lasik
Like most experienced surgeon's, Dr. Newman will target a 80-100 micron flap which maximizes the safety of the procedure. This advanced technique preserves greater corneal strenght and can provide a faster visual recovery and decreased chance of dry eye.
This coupled with the Visx excimer laser platform, which is one of the most "tissue sparing" laser vision corrections systems available, increases the likelyhood a perspective patient will qualify for the lasik procedure where in the past they may have been non-candidates due to high prescriptions or thin corneas. We also offer Advanced Surface Ablation or PRK for lasik non-candidates.
All Laser Lasik
Femtosecond laser technologies such as the Intralase and Zeimer LDV are highly advanced devices utilized during the first step of the lasik procedure. These lasers focus an infrared beam of light on the cornea to separate tissue through a process called photodisruption. Studies have shown them to be a very safe alternatives to thin flap microkeratome lasik with excellent visual outcomes. We offer Fifth Generation Intralase iFS technology which can increase patient safety and minimize the risk of dry eye. This is the most advanced lasik technology available today and it is approved by both NASA and the U.S. Airforce for our pilots and astronauts.
PRK laser vision correction is used to correct astigmatism as well as near and far sightedness. It is generally reserved for thin corneas and higher prescriptions along with corneal epithelial anomalies. It is a very simple procedure from a patients' perspective, and it provides the same visual results as lasik. This procedure can be done with both wavefront custom and traditional technology. The primary difference between PRK and LASIK is the recovery for PRK is longer and can be more uncomfortable.
Monovision lasik and prk.
Monovision is a form of laser vision correction that corrects presbyopia (aging of the eyes). It takes advantage of ocular dominance and provides patients who are in bifocals the ability of read without glasses. Patients in the 40 and older age group will be given a demonstration of this type of correction during the complimentary consultation.
