Durrie Vision is one of only a handful of Refractive Surgery practices in the nation to offer a breakthrough in Femtosecond Laser Technology for lens correction. This technology allows Durrie Vision to provide you a solution to reading glasses and bifocals and get you back into an active lifestyle.
WHAT IS FEMTOSECOND LASER TECHNOLOGY?
The innovative Femtosecond Laser Technology provides a bladeless, computer-controlled laser lens procedure planned and performed to exacting, individualized specification not attainable with traditional surgical methods. This advanced laser technology enables surgeons to create safer more precise outcomes by automating some of the most important manual steps during traditional lens replacement procedures (refractive lens exchange and cataract surgery). This Laser Lens Surgery is also improving post-surgical outcomes and overall patient satisfaction.
WHAT VISION PROBLEMS CAN LASER LENS SURGERY CORRECT?
- Patient’s age 40+ with moderate to severe age related lens changes or Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome. The typical patient will be in reading glasses or bifocals looking for better vision and a solution to the hassle and inconvenience of glasses.
- Patient’s with medical cataracts that are looking for better vision to regain their functional ability and active lifestyle. This target demographic is willing and able to pay for advanced technology and quality of care.
- Patients suffering from extreme far or near sightedness that is not correctable with SBK or LASIK.
THE MOST ADVANCED DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLGY AVAILABLE
Durrie Vision offers the Advanced Ocular Analysis (AOA) to determine if you are a candidate for the Laser Lens Correction procedure. The AOA is unlike any traditional eye exam, utilizing the most advanced diagnostic technology available. This technology enables the surgeon to see a 3D view of eye functionality as well as provides a customized, topographical mapping of your cornea. This upfront testing allows us to further customize your laser procedure specifically to your eyes, not a prescription. The AOA also determines the health of your eyes prior to a Laser Vision Correction procedure which is important to ensure both safety and the best possible visual outcomes.
LIFETIME VISION PLAN ESTABLISHED
During the Advanced Ocular Analysis, you will meet with the surgeon to review all the diagnostics determining your candidacy for a procedure, as well as establishing your Lifetime Vision Plan. While meeting with the surgeon, your options for a Laser Correction procedure will be discussed allowing you the opportunity to have all of your questions answered with reassuring guidance in making the right decision. Durrie Vision is dedicated to helping you have great vision today as well as for your lifetime.
WHAT IS LASER LENS SURGERY LIKE?
Laser Lens Surgery is a short, out-patient procedure performed under topical anesthesia and usually takes about 15 – 20 minutes to complete. The surgery is not painful. Patients may note a pressure sensation and a “light show” during the procedure. The procedure is done one eye at a time with the second eye scheduled as early as 1-2 weeks later.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FOR RECOVERY?
Most patients are able to perform their normal daily tasks the day after surgery. However, there will be a few restrictions to protect the eye in the early postoperative period. As with all eye surgery, there is a healing period that must be completed for visual stabilization.
