Katzen Eye Center
Katzen Eye Center is a state-of-the-art facility whose surgeons work hard to remain at the forefront of surgical innovation. The center was South Florida’s first eye center devoted to laser vision correction and was the first doctor-owned center to permanently transition to bladeless LASIK with IntraLase technology.
Each patient is meticulously examined at the Katzen Eye Center so that the surgeons can determine the best course of treatment. When performing LASIK surgery, the surgeons use the VISX Star 4 Custom laser platform. This state-of-the-art system produces a precise map of the cornea. Before correcting the cornea’s curvature with the laser, the surgeons of Katzen Eye Center use the IntraLase laser to create a corneal flap. A VISX excimer laser is then used to correct the shape of the cornea. This two-laser approach is known as “All Laser LASIK.”
The following eye surgeries are also available to patients of Katzen Eye Center:
- CK surgery (conductive keratoplasty) to correct nearsightedness
- Cataract surgery with premium IOLs (intraocular lenses), including Crystalens, ReSTOR and ReZoom
- Phakic IOLs (implantable contact lenses), including Verisyse and Visian, for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK
