With more than 20 years of experience in cataract, corneal, and refractive surgery, Advanced Laser Vision & Surgical Institute's board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. William Lipsky and his team of eye specialists sharpen sight with help from the advanced iLASIK procedure. An initial consultation and test ensure eye orbs are ideal candidates for the treatment, which uses blade-free IntraLase technology and the VISX Star S4 Excimer laser to reshape the cornea, effectively treating most types of refractive errors including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and chronic smoky eye. The procedure itself typically takes around 10 minutes per eye, and numbing eye drops and a mild oral sedative are available to minimize discomfort. Patients return for a follow-up visit the day after surgery and can typically resume normal activities such as driving, working, and hypnotizing the cat the day after that.

Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wavelight lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon reshapes the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.

At Eye Excellence, advanced ocular technology enables the staff to diagnose even the rarest eye disorders and then correct them without the use of a blade. Here, the team can remove a cataract with a precise refractive laser, reshape the entire cornea with an excimer laser-aided LASIK procedure, or just make laser-sharp measurements for contacts and designer frame fittings. But these cutting-edge devices would be nothing without the licensed professionals who operate them. Eye Excellence is helmed by Mary T. Green, M.D., Ph.D, a seasoned ophthalmologist and surgeon, and a Fellow on three medical boards. Dr. Green is aided by three therapeutic optometrists and a squad of ophthalmic technicians and opticians, all of whom never stop learning in their quest to better clients' vision.
