Modesto LASIK Surgeon – Dr. Ash
Serving Stockton, Manteca, Tracy, Merced
LASIK eye surgery is a surgery that alters the shape of the cornea to change the prescription of the eye. Changing of the prescription is done by first creating a thin layer of the cornea (called the flap) and then lifting it out of the way, to expose the underneath surface. Afterwards a special type of laser called excimer laser is used to "etch" the new prescription into the exposed area. As the final step, the flap is then replaced back in place.
The Visante Anterior Segment OCT in combination with ATLAS Corneal Topographer provide great details about the eye. The combined instrumentation is called Visante omni. The Visante omni is capable of providing an enormous amount of information about the overall health of the cornea and its stability. The Stockton / Modesto LASIK surgeon, Dr. Ash, uses Visante omni in pre-operative and post-operative evaluation of all of his LASIK patients.
There are several areas in the LASIK surgery evaluation that the Visante provides useful information:
