Dr. Gerald B. Walman, an eye surgeon and the medical director of Walman Eye Center, sharpens fuzzy vision with Z-LASIK bladeless vision correction. Walman Eye Center is one of the first and only facilities in Arizona that offers the precision, bladeless technology. During a 10- to 15-minute LASIK procedure, patients lie back while the doctor administers numbing drops and gently fashions a corneal flap with ultra-short pulses of light from a high-frequency Ziemer laser. Once the bashful cornea has been exposed, an excimer laser reshapes it to improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and faulty smell-o-vision. The doctor then replaces the flap—without a need for stitches—and sends patients home to shut down peepers for at least four hours. During the initial consultation, the doctor determines if individuals are good candidates for LASIK; if they are not deemed so, the price of the Groupon will be refunded and their glasses will breathe a sigh of relief.
Walman Eye Center
Dr. Gerald Walman has always preferred practicing locally over traveling out of state to perform surgeries.That explains why the long-time resident of Phoenix has been practicing eye surgery in the area since 1979. Something has changed in those years, though—namely, the advanced technology Dr. Walman uses to do his job.
During LASIK surgery, Walman Eye Center shapes and creates the corneal flap using the Ziemer Femto LDV, an advanced bladeless laser technology developed in Switzerland. The LASIK lasers then adjust the eye's internal curvature and bring the world, with the exception of fun-house mirrors, into crisp focus. The center even offers topography-guided LASIK, a new advancement that is designed to produce superior results to the older custom wavefront technology. In addition, the center also brightens cloudy, cataract-afflicted eyes with implant surgeries and lifts drooping eyelids with laser rejuvenation treatments.
