Twenty years ago, ablation to the surface of the cornea to correct a refractive error was a foreign concept to some, but, thankfully, not to all. Aren’t we glad to see the progress? Here we are, two decades later, with the development of further advanced technology allowing us to treat the steepest of corneas, correct life-changing prescriptions, and even eliminate an impressive astigmatism.
WaveScan WaveFront® System
With the advancement of technology, comes the need for consistent training for Ophthalmologists and their staff. Training ensures up-to-date awareness of technology advancements, FDA approvals, and more. At Shofner Vision Center, we are glad to partner with Abbott for our WaveScan diagnostic measurements, and our VISX Excimer laser, as well as with Ziemer for our Femtosecond laser. Shofner Vision Center is happy to announce the recertification of all LASIK employees to perfectly utilize all three machines to give you the custom treatment you deserve.
iFS® Advanced Femtosecond Laser
The intense recertification process dives into the means of the technology and the precision of the instruments. For example, did you know that the same WaveScan technology we use for LASIK measurements is also used to enhance images taken from the Hubble telescope? Or the femtosecond laser pulses at the rate of one millionth of a nanosecond? What an amazing time of technology we live in!
With all of our LASIK employees certified to provide you with custom LASIK, you can be assured that Shofner Vision Center is the best place for your LASIK surgery.
