Our Qualifications: Choosing a qualified LASIK surgeon increases the likelihood of great visual results. Laser Eye Center has been offering high-quality vision care since 1986. Our Los Angeles LASIK surgeons have earned their medical degrees from some of the most prestigious universities, completing advanced ophthalmology training programs treating all aspects of refractive surgeries. The surgeons at Laser Eye Center stay up-to-date on all empirical studies pertaining to LASIK, as well as, upcoming FDA-approved technology to enhance LASIK outcomes.
Number of LASIK Procedures Performed: There is no substitute for experience. Led by Dr. Abraham Shammas, our Los Angeles LASIK team has performed over 200,000 refractive and laser eye surgeries. With this kind of experience, our surgeons can be trusted to consistently deliver excellent laser vision correction outcomes. The majority of our patients do not need additional surgical treatment in the future to enhance their LASIK results.
Types of LASIK Surgery Offered: At Laser Eye Center, we believe it is in the best interests of our patients to offer them a choice in their laser vision correction surgery. Every patient has a unique set of needs and visual goals, and by offering a variety of laser vision correction procedures, we can serve a broader range of people. We evaluate every patient individually and recommend the procedure we feel best benefits them.
In addition to traditional LASIK, we perform:
- Custom LASIK – helps reduce or eliminate both lower order and higher order aberrations. Innovative wavefront technology is used to capture information and create a customized map of the eye’s unique imperfections. This map is then used to calibrate the laser.
- Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) – similar in nature to LASIK, but does not require the creation of a corneal flap. It is a great option for individuals that do not qualify for conventional LASIK.
- All-Laser LASIK – enhances the safety and precision of traditional LASIK by eliminating the need for handheld instruments. Instead, a laser is used for both critical procedural steps: creating the corneal flap and reshaping the corneal tissue.
Patients with nearsightedness that do not qualify for laser vision correction surgery also have the option to have Verisyse lenses implanted to restore clear vision.
