About Caster Eye Center
All laser treatments at Caster Eye Center are performed personally by Dr. Caster. Each patient is meticulously screened by Dr. Caster to determine the best option for his or her particular situation. For LASIK surgery, Caster Eye Center offers the Wavelight Allegretto and VISX lasers. Dr. Caster uses only the custom wavefront LASIK techniques, where the light-focusing power of each eye is measured in 200 separate locations. This unique “corneal map” is then programmed into the laser so that a new corneal curvature can be created with the highest precision.
To ensure accuracy, the laser room at the Caster Eye Center is both temperature-and humidity-controlled. To create the “corneal flap,” Dr. Caster offers IntraLase and Zyoptix XP. This combination of technology and meticulous control of the surgical environment provides for the best possible Lasik outcomes.
Although the Caster Eye Center is on the cutting edge of new technology in laser vision correction, it is very personable and conservative in its approach. A comprehensive screening process is used for all patients, and approximately one-third of the patients are advised not to undergo surgery at all. Each patient is treated only if Dr. Caster believes the patient will obtain excellent results.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Caster to discuss your vision correction needs and to determine if LASIK surgery is a good option for you. The consultation will allow you to learn more about the LASIK procedure, its costs and available financing options, in addition to discussing alternative corrective procedures like PRK.
