Am I a Good Candidate?
Are You A Candidate For Vision Correction? The Ideal Candidate: There are times when our practice must turn away patients because they are not a good candidate for the procedure and our number one concern is not the number of patients we bring in but the quality of care and high level of service we provide to the community.
Custom Micro-LASIK®, a registered trademark with the U.S. Patent Office, describes a technique that Dr. Robert Lin helped to pioneer in 1999 to improve the results and safety of your LASIK eye surgery. The Custom Micro-LASIK® technique creates an ultra-thin corneal flap during laser eye surgery in order to gain access to the corneal stroma for laser treatment.
A great SMILE can be a powerful asset. It can create opportunities and set you up for success – much like the minimally invasive Laser Vision Correction procedure SMILE. Especially when you consider that 1 million eyes have already been treated with Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, better known as SMILE.
All Laser Micro-Lasik®
The latest Carl Zeiss VisuMax® platform employs a high-performance femtosecond laser technology that provides outstanding precision, incredible speed/efficiency, and unsurpassed comfort with its gentle treatment technique.
You have many options when it comes to vision correction. Please call 1-888-539-2211 to schedule a free consultation with our knowledgeable staff. Typically used to treat: · Myopia What is PRK? Stage 1: Accessing the corneal stroma · PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) – PRK completely removes the corneal epithelium, in order to gain access to the corneal stroma.
You have many options when it comes to vision correction. Please call 1-888-539-2211 to schedule a free consultation with our knowledgeable staff. For patients that have very thin, or abnormally shaped corneas, Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK) may be the only option. First performed in 1987, the LASEK technique preserves the extremely thin epithelial layer to gain access to the corneal stroma before the Laser Treatment is applied.

The Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer® Lens) is a state-of-the-art solution that’s ideal for anyone with the need or desire for quality vision correction. Produced by STAAR® Surgical Company, the Visian ICL has numerous advantages including its correction of the widest range of myopia, or “nearsightedness.”
Typically used to treat:
- Myopia (Nearsightedness)
What is Intacs? Intacs(also known as Intracorneal Rings, ICRs, and Corneal Ring Segments) are two tiny half rings designed to permanently correct vision when placed within the eye. They are made of a special biocompatible material that has been used in contact lenses and cataract surgery for nearly 50 years. Inside the cornea, they cannot be felt and are practically invisible.
Typically used to treat: · Pterygium · Pinguecula What is Pterygium? Pterygium is a growth of the conjunctiva that grows onto the cornea. The conjunctiva is the clear tissue that covers the sclera (the white part of the eye) and also lines the inside of the eyelids. The exact cause of Pterygium is unknown, but many associate it with excessive exposure to wind, ultra-violet rays (typically from the sun), and/or sand.
The KAMRA inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and frees you from the constant frustrations of reading glasses. It is ideal for active people looking to free themselves from reading glasses or contact lenses for their everyday activities.
LRI (Limbal Relaxing Incision)
Typically used to treat:
- Cataract Patients
What is LRI? Limbal Relaxing Incision, or LRI, is a procedure in which partial thickness incisions are made at the corneal periphery (edge of the cornea) in order to treat corneal astigmatism. The small incisions “Relax” the curvature of the cornea and improve its ability to focus light.
Imagine if you could correct your nearsightedness and reduce your dependency on corrective lenses (glasses and contact lenses)… while you sleep! It might sound far-fetched, but it's a reality for many people. It's called Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, and it is available at IQ Laser Vision. With an increase in the public demand for vision correction, Ortho-K is a great, non-surgical, low-risk option to help improve vision.
Cataracts & Premium IOLs
What is Cataracts? Cataracts develop gradually over time as natural proteins within the eye structure and clump together, causing obstruction to vision. It is a natural part of aging and nearly everyone gets cataracts, typically after age 60. A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects your ability to see clearly.
Corneal Cross-Linking is a procedure which uses UV light and a photosensitizer to age and strengthen chemical bonds in the cornea. By strengthening the chemical bonds, we are able to slow down/stop the progression of irregular changes in the corneal shape, thus making the cornea more receptive to other methods of vision correction.
