Cataract Surgeon San Antonio - Serving patients seeking cataract surgery in San Antonio and the surrounding area
Kenneth Maverick, MD, and James Lehmann, MD, are fellowship-trained, board-certified ophthalmologists with nearly 20 years of collective experience treating San Antonio LASIK patients. Both eye doctors have been featured across various media outlets, including appearing on the television show, “Great Day SA.” Drs. Maverick and Lehmann have received numerous accolades for their work in the field of ophthalmology, including being named one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” for several years running by the Consumers’ Research Council of America. Dr. Maverick has also been recognized as one of the “Best Doctors in America” for ophthalmology by his peers, as expressed by Best Doctors, Inc., and has been named one of the “Best Physicians in San Antonio” by San Antonio Magazine. Outside his work in private practice, Dr. Lehmann is an assistant clinical faculty member at the UT Health Science Center. He is also committed to assisting underserved communities at home and in countries around the world through his many volunteer efforts, including performing volunteer clinical and surgical duties at the I Care Clinic and traveling abroad several times each year to teach and perform surgery, in places such as Mexico and Peru. At Focal Point Vision, Drs. Maverick and Lehmann provide their patients with this same level of dedication.
At Focal Point Vision, the ophthalmologists offer a wide range of vision correction treatment options in addition to LASIK, including PRK, implantable contact lens (ICL) surgery, corneal transplantation, treatment for keratoconus, glaucoma treatment, pterygium surgery and even eyelid surgery to eliminate excess fat and skin from sagging upper eyelids.
More About Vision Correction at Focal Point Vision
As leaders in the field of laser eye surgery, the surgeons at Focal Point Vision use only the most advanced laser technology for their LASIK procedures. Doing so allows them to provide highly customized vision correction treatment and extremely precise results. The state-of-the-art practice is equipped with Intralase femtosecond laser technology for improved corneal flap creation as well as both the VISX S4 and Allegretto Wavelight laser platforms to re-shape the curvature of the cornea during the LASIK procedure. Depending on the patient’s visual prescription and eye anatomy, the surgeon will recommend the laser platform that will best meet the patient’s unique vision correction needs.
Before starting the LASIK procedure, Drs. Maverick and Lehmann use sophisticated diagnostic tools to capture the eye’s unique refractive errors, including higher-order aberrations (extremely subtle vision problems). They use this diagnostic information to calibrate the excimer laser used to re-contour the cornea.
Drs. Maverick and Lehmann start the LASIK procedure by using the Intralase femtosecond laser to make a hinged flap in the cornea. After gently lifting back the flap, the laser eye surgeon uses the excimer laser to remove microscopic particles of the underlying corneal tissue, thereby correcting the refractive error causing the patient’s nearsightedness, farsightedness and / or astigmatism. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the newly shaped cornea, he carefully replaces the corneal flap back in its original position, where it naturally re-bonds to the eye without the need for sutures.
San Antonio LASIK patients treated by Dr. Maverick or Dr. Lehmann find that the procedure is generally free from pain, and that it typically produces a dramatic improvement in their vision within 24 to 48 hours following the procedure. In most cases, individuals treated by the Focal Point Vision eye surgeons no longer need to rely on contact lenses or glasses to see clearly. In fact, more than 99 percent of LASIK patients achieve 20/20 vision.
