LASIK eye surgery has several advantages over other vision correction procedures. It yields immediate results, and gives the patient clearer, more reliable vision in less than 24 hours. LASIK is the most common refractive surgery procedure performed by ophthalmologist, Dr. Danny Lee, of Huntsville, Alabama.
Laser Vision Correction involves no blade and is performed by board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Danny Lee. Dr. Lee believes that educating his patients is a vital step in the surgical process. During consultation patients will learn what to expect before, during and after treatment.
Dr. Lee is the first ophthalmologist in the Southeast to offer a brand new technology called iDesign to his LASIK patients. This system, which is FDA-approved, is a tool used to produce high-resolution scans of the patient's eye with great detail. The scans are used by Dr. Lee to measure the shape of the cornea and to allow him to see what changes need to be made during the LASIK procedure.
iDesign is the same technology that was used to repair the Hubble telescope after its initial launch. It is also what is being used in the new telescope that will soon be launched to replace the Hubble.
The iDesign technology makes LASIK more of a possibility for patients with astigmatism and those who have an unusual pupil size. iDesign adds another level of customization and safety to the LASIK experience with Dr. Lee.
Dr. Lee, who has offices in Huntsville, Alabama and Decatur, Alabama, also offers iLASIK, which is the safest, most technologically advanced laser vision correction procedure available today. iLASIK combines the Advanced CustomVue treatment with the IntraLase Method, a 100-percent blade-free approach that delivers outstanding results.
Here are a few of the many benefits of the iLASIK procedure:
- iLASIK technology is safe and proven
- It is a custom procedure tailored specifically to each individual
- iLASIK yields immediate results
- 98% achieve 20/20 vision after the surgery
- Minimal down time – you may resume normal activities the very next day
