At Kurwa Eye Center, Doctors Bud Kurwa, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and Dickson Chen, a fellow in the American Academy of Optometry, help strengthen vision in patients both young and old with a trio of services. LASIK procedures help dispense with glasses by using a laser to reshape corneas, and cataract surgery removes clouds and ghostly apparitions from behind the eye’s natural lens. Channeling 20 years of experience, Dr. Kurwa also de-blurs fine print for those older than 40 with conductive keratoplasty, a process that uses radio frequency to steepen the central cornea.
When skimming Dr. Robert T. Lin’s credentials, the number 25,000 stands out. It represents how many successful refractive surgeries he has completed in his career. One can only assume that several of those tallies come from the time he spent developing Micro-LASIK, a form of laser eye surgery considered less invasive than traditional LASIK because it creates a thinner corneal flap and no longer requires eyes to answer personal questions such as “When is the last time you had direct contact with a contact?” Dr. Lin founded IQ Laser Vision in 1999 and has since added an equally as skilled staff of fellow eye doctors who specialize in refractive eye surgery procedures, cataracts, Ortho-K, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative eye care.
Dr. Lori Moore, a refractive-surgery specialist and the founder of NuVision Laser, reshapes corneas and sharpens eyesight with traditional LASIK surgery. Before submitting their peepers to the laser's beams, patients come in for a consultation and 20 minutes of preliminary testing to determine candidacy, then again for one–two hours of pre-op examination and competitive staring contests. On surgery day, topical anesthetic drops numb the eyeball before a microsurgical procedure cuts open a flap in the cornea. Dr. Moore then uses a laser to reshape the corneal surface and replaces the flap, with total time under the laser amounting to about one minute. Patients return the next day for a post-op exam and a triumphant glasses-smashing ceremony.
