At the Abrams Eye Institute, Dr. Jack Abrams guides top-of-the-line VISX Star IR S4 lasers during LASIK surgery to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness in adults 18 and older. In a preliminary consultation, the team reviews a patient's medical history and tests their vision to determine if LASIK can improve the panes on their face windows. The institute features an in-house, state-of-the-art surgery center, where Dr. Abrams incises a small flap into the corneal tissue, opening orbs to receive the light of the VISX S4 and the love of devoted lashes. Pulses from this ultraviolet laser minutely sculpt corneas into a bedazzling set of internal corrective lenses in less than 60 seconds. After the corneal flap is replaced, the opening re-adheres, sans stitches, over the course of several minutes. Patients should expect to be able to move comfortably after the procedure and should experience a rapid return of vision and invisibility powers after one day.
Dr. Vivienne Velasco leads a vigilant campaign against poor vision and unstylish specs at iFocus Vision Center, where a staff of highly trained technicians bolster her handiwork. iFocus provides a wealth of ocular services, from comprehensive eye exams to refractive and cataract-surgery evaluations. Patients can pick out the latest in eyewear fashion from dozens of designer brands, and an onsite lab ensures most prescriptions can be completed within one to two days.
Dr. Jon L. Siems brings extensive surgical experience to his pioneering eye center?he's served as one-time director of four different laser centers in California and Nevada and has acted as a principal investigator for a trio of major FDA trials. He was also one of the first five doctors in the United States to use bladeless IntraLase LASIK technology. Inside his practice, which has now treated more than 50,000 patients, he and his team improve vision with refractive procedures, cataract-implantable contact lenses, cataract surgeries, and general eye exams
At iDocUSA —a sister business to Siems Lasik—Dr. Amel Youssef assesses ocular muscle strength, examines the curvature of the lens, and screens for early signs of diseases. She uses the latest medical technology, which tests the eye's abilities with tiny charts, magnifying lenses, and bright lights that help the doctor win staring contests.
Whether Dr. Youssef winds up prescribing contact lenses or glasses, or patients opt for Lasik surgery, the staff at iDocUSA can gladly help with the next step. She might aid them in selecting a lens from the 300 varieties iDocUSA has in stock, or begin pre-surgery Lasik procedures with a consultation. The store also has more than 40 designer brands of glasses, including Ray Ban, Tommy Bahama, and Prada.
Doctors Malitz and Singh of Southwest Eye Institute provide a prism of laser vision corrective services to permanently reduce or eliminate the need for cumbersome eye accoutrements. Dr. Malitz's expertly honed methods of vision correction amalgamate thousands of data points culled from a complimentary pretreatment exam that uses cutting edge WaveFront mapping to minutely chart the eye's topography and determine the best method of refractive terraforming. Both LASIK and PRK treat nearsightedness and farsightedness, as well as astigmatism and the fear that one's dog is actually a masked cat. Treatments may take as little as 10 minutes, and most can see well enough to drive in 24 hours.
