This three part series explores the LASIK eye surgery cost at Providence Eye enabling you to better compare practices for your laser eye surgery.
LASIK Eye Surgery Cost
The cost of LASIK at Providence Eye & Laser Specialists is not based on each patients’ needs for vision correction, but it is a flat-rate model to ensure everyone receives the best possible results from their procedure. There are numerous versions of laser technology available for laser eye surgery, choosing a practice that does not use current state-of-the-art technology for your eyes could result in less than optimal results.
Dr. Mozayeni, the founder and only LASIK surgeon at Providence Eye, personally makes the decisions regarding technology investment. He makes these decisions after diligent research and chooses current state-of-the-art technology so that he can live up to his commitment to always delivering optimal results. When investing in new technology Dr. Mozayeni meets extensively with the manufacturer to understand every nuance of the equipment, reviews medical studies, product specification sheets and meets with surgeons who are already using the technology to determine if a new technology can deliver optimal consistent results for his patients.
- Pentacam - This tool is used to map the patients’ cornea using state-of-the-art micro-imaging technology. In a matter of 5 seconds the Pentacam can measure up to 25,000 elevation points of the cornea. This detailed look at your cornea not only helps Dr. Mozayeni determine if you are an ideal LASIK candidate but it also enables Dr. Mozayeni to customize your vision correction to deliver optimal result for each individual.
- Wavelight FS200 Laser - This laser is used to create a precise, thin flap of tissue which allows the surgeon access to the cornea for reshaping. Dr. Mozayeni invested in this laser in 2010 because of its speed & precision. This laser far out performed the IntraLase previously used by Dr. Mozayeni.
- Wavelight EX500 Laser - This laser, the complimenting laser to the WaveLight FS200, reshapes the cornea once the flap is created. This laser is predictable, precise & fast, correcting vision in as little as 3-5 seconds per eye!
State-of-the-art technology is only a small part of the procedure, but surgeon experience with the laser can make a huge difference. For example, compare the connection between surgeon experience and laser technology to upgrading from a flip phone to a smart phone. When you are inexperienced with the smart phone, you are unable to fully leverage the capabilities it has to offer. When a surgeon has tens of thousands of successful surgeries with state-of-the-art laser technology, like Dr. Mozayeni, he understands the best way to produce optimal results for his patients at a flat-rate LASIK eye surgery cost.
