Leading Technology Introduced at Atlantic Laser Vision Center in New Jersey
LASIK eye surgery is one of the most commonly performed elective surgical procedures in the United States. With approximately 1.4 million LASIK procedures performed each year, the demand for the procedure has continued to increase. With that demand comes the need for continued advancements in technologies and equipment in laser vision correction.
Dr. Daniel BGoldberg, Director of Refractive/LASIK Surgery, at The Atlantic Laser Vision Center in Little Silver, NJ has a long-standing commitment to providing the most advanced technology for all his procedures, and that’s a great asset for potential patients.
The Atlantic Laser Center uses the WaveScan Wavefront analyzer which can more accurately customize Excimer laser treatments. The WaveScan is estimated to be 25X more accurate than measurements with lenses used in eyeglasses and contact lenses. Dr. Goldberg states that “the results with customized LASIK have elevated the quality of results, and the results with all-laser Femtosecond laser flaps have elevated both the safety and the quality of results. We have reached a new level in LASIK.”
Dr. Goldberg helped introduce the use of IntraLase® in New Jersey, knowing it represented an extraordinary leap in refractive surgery. IntraLase® is more precise and safe than a microkeratome, or mechanical blade, in the critical first step of LASIK: creating the corneal flap. Replacing the microkeratome with IntraLase® gives LASIK patients a critical added safety factor. Now, New Jersey LASIK patients have a safer, more precise alternative to the tiny handheld blade used by most to create the flap.
In addition, the Atlantic Laser Center in Little Silver has continued to upgrade its lasers to provide the latest technologies and the best results. The facility is the first in New Jersey, and one of the first in the US to combine the Intralase Femtosecond all-laser, no-blade flap with the VISX customized Excimer laser platform. “Our system now has been revised to integrate all of the new technology,” Goldberg says, “we have continued to bring the very best LASIK technologies to New Jersey which benefits our patients with safer and more accurate results.” The the latest addition of iris registration theVISX S4 registers the treatment more accurately while delivering more precise customized treatment.
The new technologies qualify the facility as one of only a few centers in New Jersey certified to perform iLASIK. iLASIK is a proprietary procedure performed on American Medical Optic’s (AMO) best equipment—WaveScan, Intralase, and VISX S4 with iris registration and FDA approved custom monovision. In 2007 the FDA approved customVue monovision, which is part of the iLASIK platform. Now all of these technologies—WaveScan, Intralase, VISX S4, and CustomVue monovision have been combined by AMO as iLASIK. As further evidence of the advantages of this technology, the US Air Force, US Navy, and NASA have chosen the iLASIK platform for their pilots and astronauts. All of these major advancements will result in safer, more exact laser vision correction results for patients at the Atlantic Laser Center in Little Silver, New Jersey.
