Austin Eye Acquires the Latest Generation of iLASIK Technology

August 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Keeping with their tradition of acquiring the latest LASIK technology for their Austin laser eye surgery patients, Austin Eye has become one of the first eye care practices in the region to obtain the latest generation of the iFS femtosecond laser for blade-free vision correction surgery.

Dr. Mitchel Wong, Dr. Shannon Wong and Dr. John Odette are proud to incorporate the state-of-the-art iFS femtosecond laser into their premier LASIK surgical center, where they help Austin laser eye surgery patients obtain near-perfect vision.

Manufactured by Abbott Medical Optics (AMO), the iFS femtosecond laser features unsurpassed surgical speed and control for safe, easy corneal flap creation during blade-free LASIK (iLASIK) surgery. The flap is a thin layer of tissue that is lifted from the surface of the cornea during LASIK surgery. The flap is later returned to its original position to protect the eye after surgery. The iFS femtosecond laser allows Drs. Wong and Odette to precisely engineer corneal flaps for each patient, thereby providing individualized results. The laser also uses low energy to reduce the risk of tissue inflammation and facilitate a smoother recovery.

Austin Eye was also one of the first LASIK surgery practices to bring iLASIK surgery to Austin vision correction patients back in 2002.
