More About LASIK Vision Correction at Eye Center of Texas
Drs. Ahmed, Mayo and Wade use leading-edge laser technology for customized vision correction treatment. Eye Center of Texas exclusively uses the iLASIK “All Laser” bladeless surgery technique which is proven to provide superior safety and superior vision compared to traditional blade LASIK surgery.
The surgeons also utilize wavefront imaging technology to create a unique “fingerprint” of the eye’s unique refractive errors, including nearly imperceptible errors called higher order aberrations. They then use this information to calibrate the excimer laser used to re-contour the curvature of the cornea.
The LASIK surgeon begins by using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create a small flap in the cornea. He gently lifts back the flap to access the corneal tissue underneath. Using the calibrated excimer laser, the surgeon then reshapes the curvature of the cornea to correct the refractive error causing the patient’s nearsightedness, farsightedness and / or astigmatism. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the newly contoured cornea, he carefully returns the corneal flap back to its initial position, where it naturally re-bonds to the eye without the need for sutures.
Dr. Ahmed, Dr. Mayo and Dr. Wade’s Houston LASIK patients do not experience any pain during the procedure. They typically notice an improvement in vision 24 to 48 hours after LASIK surgery. Patients are happy to discover that they no longer need to rely on daily eyewear to see clearly. And more than 99 percent of patients attain 20/20 vision or better following LASIK surgery.
