A key component in quality care is technology. Whether you’re undergoing a routine test for glaucoma or a LASIK procedure, you want to know that the equipment being used on your eyes is state-of-the-art.
Among the latest technology in use daily at Christenbury Eye Center is:
The IntraLase FS laser introduces new high precision femtosecond laser technology to ophthalmology. Patients now have a safer, computer controlled alternative to a microkeratome for creating the corneal flap. By using the new IntraLase FS laser and eliminating the mechanical surgical tool, the risk of infection and complications is greatly reduced. The IntraLase FS laser’s long wavelength allows light to pass through the surface of the cornea without any damage to the outer tissues, as it travels to the exact predetermined depth and location required for the corneal resection (creating the corneal flap required for LASIK).
VISX STAR S4
The VISX STAR S4 Excimer Laser System – with the introduction of the NEW WaveScan system, allows Dr. Christenbury diagnostic information previously unavailable and offers you more treatment options personalized to your vision.
To stay on the cutting edge, the physicians at the Christenbury Eye Center are constantly evaluating new technologies that come on the market to see if they offer better treatment options for patients.
