LaserVue frees patients from cumbersome eyeglasses and contact lenses with LASIK or PRK surgery. Patients start with an initial corneal consultation and an in-depth eye exam that includes fundoscopy, refraction, and an SAT analogies section to make sure that LASIK or PRK is the right choice for their vision needs. Utilizing the delicate, modern Intralase iFS and Wavelight Allegretto Eye Tracking lasers, LaserVue's experienced surgeons can fix problematic peepers in procedures that last approximately 15 minutes. LASIK and PRK are similar surgeries—LASIK creates a corneal flap, and patients will experience a vision blurring or loss lasting about a minute. In PRK surgery, the laser is applied directly to the surface of the eye; no vision blurring occurs, but recovery time takes longer. Some initial haziness and irritation are generally experienced after the procedures, but like a methodical viewfinder, images sharpen within a few days.

An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. George H. Pope outfits his office with a well-trained staff and the latest technology to meet clients' cosmetic needs. Like orange groves, unsightly spider veins can develop anywhere on the body and their progress must be halted by lasers—especially lasers that live in a comforting environment with soothing waterfalls in the waiting room and warmly colored furniture. During your duo of anti-arachnovein sessions, trained technicians will aim a Cutera Excel laser at your blood tubes, heating and dissolving the vexing vessels. Spider veins can take several weeks to disappear entirely, and the best results are typically seen after multiple treatments; today's Groupon can also be used to treat vascular lesions including telangiectasias, angiomas, and the rogue veins that live deep within your legs.
Chief dentist Dr. Susana Moncada founded Windermere Dental Group in order to create a comprehensive dental-care center. Dr. Moncada, who completed thorough training in orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry, performs a variety of services at the practice, and uses the CEREC system—ceramic crowns crafted through 3D photography—to restore smiles within one visit.
As she works, patients can enjoy their choice of movies, watching through goggles, listening through surround sound, and affecting the outcome by yelling at the characters. Classical music can also waft through the treatment room as Dr. Moncada nestles fillings into teeth or replaces missing ones with implants or dental bridges.
