At Sudarshan Eye Experts, Dr. Alexander Sudarshan and his team of certified technicians aim to correct vision problems such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism through blade-free laser eye surgery. Once a preprocedure consultation determines that their baby blues are equipped to handle surgery, patients return to the office for comprehensive eye exams to ascertain their corneas' health and clock ocular 40-yard-dash times. During the surgery itself, lasers expertly reshape corneas in a humidity-controlled, air-conditioned chamber. 3-D ActiveTrak technology and a CustomVue light map helps ensure accuracy by instantaneously adjusting corrective lasers to minute, involuntary eye movements, such as those caused by breathing or tap-dancing eyebrows. At a follow-up appointment, the next day or soon after, doctors will check vision, eliminate eyedrops, and take other measures to ensure that brows remain free of eyeglass shackles.
