More About Manrique Custom Vision Center

Several vision correction procedures are offered at the Manrique Custom Vision Center, including all-laser Z-LASIK, conductive keratoplasty, Intacs and cataract treatment.
During bladeless, all-laser Z-LASIK procedures, Dr. Manrique De Lara uses a combination of Ziemer FEMTO LDV Z4 laser technology and the wavefront-based WaveLight EX500 excimer laser to precisely treat each patient’s refraction. The Ziemer femtosecond laser is a blade-free alternative used to construct the corneal flap. Wavefront technology creates a precise map of the eye. Dr. Manrique De Lara uses this detailed map to program the excimer laser for maximize effectiveness.
Many people over the age of 40 develop a form of farsightedness called presbyopia. To treat this common condition, Dr. Manrique De Lara performs conductive keratoplasty, which uses the controlled release of radio frequency energy to reshape the cornea. He uses Intacs to treat keratoconus (a thinning of the cornea), and for cataract treatment he implants the most advanced technology intraocular lenses (IOLs), including the AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom IOLs.
