Irvine, CA (PressExposure) July 31, 2009 -- The Orange County LASIK surgery Institute is proud to offer Orange Countyâs first 20/20 or your money back guarantee! Dr. Pham and the Orange County LASIK Eye surgery Institute uses the same custom and all laser LASIK technology that is used to treat NASA pilots and Navy seals.
LASIK surgery has greatly improved since it was first introduced to the United States in the early 1990âs. The LASIK procedure involves two steps. The first is the creation of the corneal flap. Next a laser is used to change the shape of your cornea so that light is refracted (bent) into a sharp focus point on your retina. The new advances have been in both!
First, the corneal flap can now be made with the Intralase laser instead of using the microkeratome (oscillating razor blade). This has greatly improved the safety of the flap making process. Instead of using a blade, a laser is used to make the LASIK eye surgery flap. The Intralase uses a cold laser to create thousands of air bubbles that advance to form a plane. This plane is then lifted by your LASIK surgeon.
The second area of technological advancement is in the second laser that actually does your LASIK surgery treatment. The Visx CustomVue laser uses wavefront technology to offer a true custom LASIK surgery treatment. The wavefront reflects a âwaveâ of light through your cornea and compares it to the pattern of a perfect optical system. In essence, it takes a âfingerprintâ of your eye. The laser software then designs a 100% tailored treatment for your eyes. It also treats higher order aberrations or irregularities in your eye. In addition, the VISX laser has iris registration. The Visx laser will map your iris as well. This will help to make sure that any rotation of your eye is compensated during your LASIK surgery treatment.
The Orange County LASIK surgery Institute is able to offer you a 20/20 or your money back guarantee because we use these two technologies. However, not everyone is a LASIK surgery candidate. It is important to have a comprehensive eye examination to see if LASIK is an option for you. The guarantee does not guarantee that you are a candidate, nor does it guarantee that you get 20/20 vision. It does not guarantee against complications. It simply will provide you a refund if you do not obtain normal vision and you meet the planâs provisions. The best way to see if Custom and Blade Free LASIK is an option for you is to have a free LASIK consultation.
