A Team of Laser Vision Correction Experts
When you choose The Center, your procedure is performed by a board-certified ophthalmologist and cornea specialist with advanced training in cornea and refractive surgery. Our refractive surgery specialists teach and lecture on the technique and lead clinical trials to further refine treatment – they're recognized internationally for their work. This expertise means better vision results and happy patients.
Our patients have access to almost every laser technology available and treatment is fine-tuned to your unique needs. You are assured of a safer, more effective treatment with easier, faster healing and better vision. We have the VISX S3, the Zeiss MEL 80, and the Allegretto EX 500 excimer lasers, as well as the Zeiss VisuMax, the IntraLase iFS, the J&J iFS, and the Alcon FS200 femtosecond lasers to give you a full range of options.
Access to a Full Spectrum of Procedures
Our approach to vision correction is customized to your visual needs and lifestyle. During your comprehensive assessment, we examine your eyes and learn about your work, hobbies, sports, and expectations — that allows us to determine the best approach for you. We select your treatment from among the most advanced, FDA-approved vision-correction procedures available today.
Powered by UHealth
Choosing a university-based health care provider opens the door to the latest techniques and technologies. Our doctors don’t just correct vision — they train other physicians to perform the techniques and they research treatment methods and technologies. They pioneered the use of several groundbreaking technologies, including laser thermal keratoplasty (LTK), an alternative for those who can't have excimer laser treatment.
Customized Treatment Technologies
Bascom Palmer has every FDA-approved vision-correction device available, and we've performed studies for FDA-approval on nearly all of those devices. Also, we're one of the few facilities using next-generation femtosecond laser for LASIK procedures. We customize treatments to give you different options within each type of surgical correction. The best procedure for you depends on many factors, including your profession, lifestyle, visual expectations, medical and anatomic issues, and the type and amount of your refractive error.
