Additional Information on Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center
The surgeons of Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center use their surgical expertise combined with the latest technology to treat their patients’ eye care needs. Using advanced “no-stitch” procedures, Drs. Mike and Paul Mann have performed more than 30,000 cataract surgeries to help Austin, Katy and cataracts patients achieve clear vision. Unlike older lens replacement technologies, which provided for clear distance vision but left patients dependent on bifocals or reading glasses following surgery, the advanced lens technologies available at Mann Eye Institute Cataract Centers make it possible for patients to work on the computer, read, and see the dashboard with clarity. Recent studies have demonstrated that 83 percent of patients who chose premium lenses are able to rid themselves of glasses or contact lenses for functional vision.
At Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center, patients have access to the most advanced laser vision correction procedures available, including custom bladeless LASIK with CustomVue and the Allegretto Wave excimer laser. Unlike conventional LASIK surgery, which involves the use of a microkeratome blade for the creation of the corneal flap, Blade-Free LASIK uses the IntraLase femtosecond laser.
The Houston and Katy LASIK centers were the first facilities in Texas to provide bladeless LASIK with the Allegretto excimer laser. The Allegretto excimer laser platform includes wavefront technology, a revolutionary advancement that improves quality of vision during daylight and helps prevent the problems LASIK patients sometimes have with night vision. The Allegretto system also has a unique eye-tracking feature that automatically adjusts the excimer laser to accommodate changes in pupil size during treatment.
The CustomVue LASIK procedure combines the 3-D Active Tracker system, WaveScan technology and the VISX STAR 4 excimer laser. The WaveScan device identifies and measures imperfections 25 times more accurately than conventional methods, while the 3-D Active Tracker feature follows and monitors the movement of the eye 60 times per second during LASIK. The combination of these features allows the VISX STAR 4 excimer laser to provide continuous treatment, leading to higher levels of precision, safety and comfort.
