Manrique Custom Vision Center
The staff at Manrique Custom Vision Center consists of highly trained professionals who use state-of-the-art technology to help patients achieve their desired vision goals. A number of vision correction procedures are available at Manrique Custom Vision Center, including bladeless Z-LASIK, Intacs, cataract treatment and conductive keratoplasty (CK).
The bladeless, all-laser Z-LASIK procedure combines the precision of the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Z4 laser with the wavefront-guided WaveLight EX500 excimer laser. The Ziemer femtosecond laser is a bladeless alternative to the instrument traditionally used in LASIK to create the corneal flap. Wavefront technology creates a detailed map of the eye, which Dr. Manrique De Lara uses to calibrate the excimer laser for customized treatment.
Those over the age of 40 often develop a type of farsightedness called presbyopia. Dr. Manrique De Lara performs conductive keratoplasty, or CK, to treat this common condition. This procedure involves the controlled release of radio frequency energy to reshape the cornea. Dr. Manrique De Lara also offers Intacs to treat keratoconus (a thinning of the cornea), as well as AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs) for the treatment of cataracts.
