More About Vision Correction at Jacob Moore Eye Institute
Dr. Moore uses state-of-the-art Alcon WaveLight laser technology to perform LASIK. During the procedure, he first creates a unique map of the eye to diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. Next, he creates a small flap on the surface of the cornea to expose the underlying tissue. For patients who opt for bladeless, all-laser LASIK, Dr. Moore employs the FS200 femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap. Once this is accomplished, Dr. Moore uses the Alcon WaveLight EX 500 excimer laser to correct the identified corneal flaws. The flap is then returned to its original position to act as a natural bandage for the eye. Most patients who undergo LASIK eye surgery at Moore Eye Institute are able to eliminate the need for corrective eye wear. Dr. Moore also offers a range of additional treatments for patients who may not be good candidates for LASIK.
