Not all LASIK technology is created equal. The surgeons at Providence Eye have done research to identify the newest and best LASIK technology available that will enable them to deliver safe, predictable, and long-lasting vision correction results while keeping the patient as comfortable as possible.
In addition to our lasers, Providence Eye has invested in the OCULUS Pentacam® device to perform corneal topography in preparation for vision correction surgery. This technology allows Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery to learn every detail about your corneas. This is very easy for the patient, who will simply look straight into the Pentacam at a green light at the end of what appears to be a long black tunnel.
The Pentacam topography takes images of your cornea by using a rotating camera, thus producing a 3D photo of the interior part of your eye. When evaluating patients for LASIK, one of the key pieces of data is elevation analysis at the center of the cornea, and with this rotating camera, that measurement is very precise. These photos take less than five seconds per eye and during this short period up to 25,000 elevation points on your cornea are measured.
The Pentacam topography of your cornea provides information about corneal thickness, structural integrity and strength. With this information from the Pentacam topography, Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery can make the best recommendations for your laser vision correction surgery.
