Together, the staff has performed more than 50,000 vision-correcting procedures for everyone from fellow ophthalmologists to marathon needle threaders. The center's WaveLight Allegretto excimer laser system reshapes corneas in as little as 10 minutes, although the team can also use cataract surgery, radio-wave energy, and corneal implants to improve eyesight. Collectively, these procedures help correct the blurring effects of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Dr. Samuel Yankelove of the aptly named Yankelove Cataract and Lasik Center brings more than 30 years of ocular repairmanship to the chair, fine-tuning unfocused eyeballs with blade-free LASIK treatments. Employing advanced VISX Star S4 equipment, the talented ocular doc targets misshapen corneas to alleviate such optic ailments as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and foggy hindsight. The laser’s cool light beam breaks molecular bonds a few layers at a time without upsetting surrounding tissue, sculpting the cornea to permanently restore failing light to dimming peepers, with many patients experiencing 20/20 results or better. Each LASIK treatment begins with an initial consultation to suss out a suitable treatment plan, followed by a preoperative appointment and six months of follow-up care to ensure proper healing and so that new and improved eyeballs maintain that new eyesight smell.
Since they met in optometry school, husband-and-wife team Drs. Claudio and Grisel Lagunas have dreamed of opening their own practice together. Lifetime Eyecare Associates is the realization of that dream, where the duo and their fellow optometrists use advanced technology to detect and eliminate a variety of eye conditions. In addition to administering primary eye-care services, the doctors specialize in the co-management of refractive surgeries such as LASIK. They treat the degenerative corneal condition keratoconus with specialty prescription lenses, and use the innovative Optomap digital-imaging system to check ocular health and retrieve winning lottery numbers imprinted on the retina from gazing into crystal balls.
Wayne Davis first discovered Pilates after pulling his hamstring in the 2000 Olympic trials. For a professional athlete and collegiate long-jump record holder, a pulled hamstring was more than just an injury. He turned to Pilates to rehab his leg and realized that what he had seen as a tool to fix his leg was actually improving both his speed and strength. Wayne decided he wanted to extend his knowledge to others and now leads up to seven Pilates classes per day using the Allegro Pilates reformer. The reformer challenges students to a core-tightening, flexibility-focused workout without putting stress on joints or forcing students to throw expensive refrigerators off a four-story building. To supplement the Pilates classes, Wayne and his team of seasoned instructors lead spinning classes and cardio-Pilates classes that combine core-strengthening moves with blasts of high-energy cardio.
