Our LASIK Technology
In Sacramento & Roseville, California
Our doctors have a deep commitment to patient safety. When you're dealing with something as important as vision, you don't want to take any chances. Our doctors are confident in their skills and surgical abilities, but using only the best technology can significantly reduce the risks involved.
We use only the finest equipment available. We use the German engineered Hansatome microkeratome or IntraLase and the latest version of the Visx Star S4 IR laser. Our equipment is continually calibrated to insure the best possible outcome for our patients. We do not reuse materials on multiple patients to save money as some centers in our area have been reported to do in local publications. We do not cut corners to pad a profit margin at the potential expense of our trusting patients.
Why Visx? The Visx Star S4 IR laser performs the absolute best treatment available, period. Visx was the true pioneer of this industry investing hundreds of millions of dollars and many years to develop and perfect the technology we use today. Many of the other lasers on the market may cause night vision issues and halos due to poor technology.
We also insist on using the German engineered Hansatome microkeratome or IntraLase to make the flap for the LASIK treatment. If we used the next best instrument, we could save potentially tens of thousands of dollars per year. However, by using the next best instrument, we would be placing our patients at risk since the next best instrument has an unacceptable failure rate. Poor design and poor engineering will lead to malfunction even in the hands of experienced surgeons. Some instruments malfunction as often as 1 in 200 treatments due to design or engineering flaws. A failure could be just a minor problem or a blinding complication. We find this to be unacceptable. We continually evaluate new competitors to the Hansatome microkeratome or IntraLase but have yet to find anything as good or better than the German engineered Hansatome or IntraLase. If there was something better, we would be using it.
