Accredited LASIK Surgery Suite
Dr. D’s attention to detail is exemplified in his design of the Lasik Suite. The VISX laser sits on a beautiful marble floor, surrounded by accent lights, a giant Italian Tapestry and original art work. Most people are not aware that the VISX laser must be operated within a specific range of environmental conditions. To ensure consistent performance of the laser, Dr. D set up the Lasik Suite with an independent air conditioner system, a dedicated air purifier and a computer system that constantly records the air temperature and humidity. This system ensures excellent air quality in the Lasik Suite at all times. Dr. D added a backup power supply which ensures the completion of all refractive procedures, even in the event of a power surge or power outage.
Dr. D invented a computerized Electronic Medical Records System to maximize Lasik outcomes by providing unlimited access to critical data during the Lasik procedure. There are five large computer displays in the Lasik Suite that Dr. D uses to monitor all facets of the refractive process. This technology dramatically improves the safety of all refractive procedures performed at SEECA.
Dr. D also invented a patent-pending device called the “Laser Guided True Scan” that dramatically improves the calculated lens power used during lens exchange refractive surgery.
Since founding SEECA in 1998, Dr. D has performed thousands of surgeries including refractive, cataract, glaucoma, laser and plastic surgery. Dr. D has always prided himself on excellence in surgery and is constantly striving to improve his results.

More About SEECA
Dr. D. and his staff at SEECA have been specially trained to use the latest technologies in the ophthalmic field. When performing LASIK, Dr. D uses the CustomVue procedure, which combines the VISX S4 Excimer Laser and the WaveScan Wavefront System to provide a customized solution.
The WaveScan Wavefront System creates a detailed map of the eye that is 25 times more precise than the measurements used by conventional lasers. This map is used to create an individualized set of instructions for the VISX S4 Excimer Laser that is unique to each person (much like a fingerprint). By using the WaveScan Wavefront System, Dr. D is able to provide his LASIK patients with an unparalleled level of accuracy and customization that far exceeds other laser platforms.
