Dr. Shammas firmly believes that each patient should receive a comprehensive exam before deciding how to move forward with treatment. His LASIK patients benefit from leading-edge wavefront technology, which is used in conjunction with the custom LASIK procedure to identify even the minutest imperfections in corneal curvature. This technology creates a corneal map that is used when calibrating the laser to correct the patient’s vision.
Though not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK, there are several viable alternatives to LASIK that can be used, depending on an individual patient’s needs. PRK is a procedure similar to LASIK that, like LASIK, can result in significant vision improvement. Implantable contact lenses (ICLs), also called phakic IOLs, are another good option. Dr. Shammas offers Verisyse and other ICLs.
