Ophthalmic procedures are now a precise, sophisticated science where doctors rely on advanced technology to diagnose and treat problems such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts. Many procedures that used to require a hospital stay and lengthy recovery are now performed on an outpatient basis, with most patients returning to their normal activities the next day.
Thanks to new laser vision correction technology, millions who were nearsighted, farsighted, presbyopic or had astigmatism are now free of glasses and contacts. Heavy patient demand for surgical and laser vision correction has inspired surgeons and laser manufacturers to make tremendous advancements in both Excimer laser technology and surgical technique. At the Taustine Eye Center, we utilize the VISX S4 Excimer Laser and No Blade IntraLase.
If you are interested in surgical or laser vision correction, we invite you to make an appointment for an eye exam by one of our specialist doctors. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
