Dr. Burns personally evaluates each of his patients, from their first consultation to their last follow-up, including a personal call to his LASIK patients the night after their surgery.

Refractive Surgery with Advanced Cataract Surgery and LASIK
Dr. Burns and the surgeons and staff of Advanced Cataract Surgery and LASIK employ only the best diagnostic and surgical technology. For LASIK surgery, the VISX Star S4 CustomVue excimer laser system is used. Each patient’s eye has a unique curvature, similar to a “fingerprint” for the eye. The VISX CustomVue system provides a highly accurate measurement of this eye fingerprint and creates a customized laser profile to correct each eye. To create the corneal flap during LASIK, California Eye Professionals offer the highly advanced “Bladeless” or “All Laser LASIK” procedure known as IntraLase. In addition to LASIK surgery, LASEK and PRK surgery are offered for laser vision correction.
Dr. Burns is a gifted cataract surgeon and offers the most advanced surgical techniques and intraocular implants (IOLs). He is one of the only surgeons in the area who offers the latest in IOL technology, the ReSTOR IOL that simultaneously corrects for both reading and distance vision. Dr. Burns is also certified in phakic implants, another of the newer, cutting-edge refractive procedures. Patients seeking cataract surgery will be educated by Dr. Burns about all options so each patient can achieve the best vision to fit their lifestyle.
Advanced Cataract Surgery and LASIK also offers comprehensive ophthalmology services, including glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, diagnosis and treatment of retinal disease, and facial cosmetic care, such as BOTOX and blepharoplasty.
