A new VISX (Abbott Medical Optics) Star S 4 excimer laser has been acquired by The Eye Care Institute. LASIK candidates now can have the most current form of laser vision correction at The Eye Care Institute as this new machine is believed to be only the second S4 model with Iris Registration in the metro Louisville area.
John C. Meyer, MD is a partner, and LASIK surgeon, at The Eye Care Institute. He said I have performed almost 5,000 laser vision correction procedures since my cornea and refractive fellowship at Emory University in 1995. This new laser marks a turning point in allowing me to provide more care to those persons wanting state-of-the-art LASIK. Meyer continued it is important that our new laser have the Iris Registration option. Along with wavefront-guided custom technology, our system optimizes treatment times and minimizes thermal affects to the cornea. Our laser is absolutely the newest system offering the patients maximum visual acuity.
The new laser, and accompanying surgical and diagnostic instruments, represents almost a $250,000 investment in technology and solidifies our position as a LASIK market leader said Mark Prussian, CEO of The Eye Care Institute. Through our dedicated laser vision team at our LASIK Institute of Louisville division, we are now able to provide even more choices for enhanced laser vision correction, Prussian stated.
