Vision Correction With Mr. Barsam
Mr. Barsam’s ongoing involvement in the development of innovative ophthalmic equipment and techniques keeps him at the forefront of his field. He offers several forms of laser eye surgery, including Z-LASIK, an all-laser, bladeless, wavefront-guided approach to LASIK. During Z-LASIK, he employs the Swiss-made Zeimer LDV Crystalline femtosecond laser for flap creation and the German-made Wavelight Allegretto excimer laser to reshape the cornea. This is the fastest and most exact FDA-approved technology available for laser eye surgery. By combining the newest technology with his extensive training and experience, Mr. Barsam generates outstanding results for patients.
After administering anesthetic drops to numb the treated area completely, Mr. Barsam begins the all-laser LASIK procedure by using a Zeimer femtosecond laser to make an extremely thin flap in the cornea. He gently lifts the flap before utilizing the Wavelight Allegretto excimer laser to sculpt the cornea to the desired shape. Once Mr. Barsam is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, he carefully repositions the corneal flap in its original position, where it will naturally re-bond to the eye without the need for sutures.
Mr. Barsam completes the entire LASIK procedure on both eyes in less than 15 minutes. Patients do not usually feel any pain or discomfort during surgery. After the LASIK procedure, individuals are able to forego the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. In addition, the majority of patients achieve better than 20/20 vision after Z-LASIK with Allon Barsam.
