Vision Correction

Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute offers an extensive variety of surgical options for correcting vision problems. By utilizing the latest in world class technologies, our surgeons are capable of fully customizing your treatment plan for optimal results.

Vision Correction Procedures Include:

  • LASIK or PRK Monovision – Laser vision correction procedure for patients with Presbyopia (the inability to focus from distance to near). The dominant eye is fully corrected for distance vision and the non-dominant eye is slightly under-corrected, with the combination allowing for functional near vision. Using both eyes together, the brain blends the images to allow close as well as distance vision.
  • Custom Wavefront LASIK – Until recently surgeons measured the prescription for laser vision correction using exactly the same techniques that are used to prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses. The laser treated identical prescriptions exactly the same for all eyes. Today, Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute offers the newest technology to direct our lasers to provide a custom surgical procedure specifically designed for the individual eye.
  • Allegretto Wavefront Laser – The Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser may offer some patients a superior beam profile and eye tracking system, which results in giving patients a higher quality of vision.
  • All-Laser LASIK – Dramatically improves vision for patients with mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Provides improved vision and little down-time before returning to most daily activities.
  • PRK – An excellent alternative for patients with thinner corneas or who might not be a candidate for LASIK. Treatment is performed on the surface of the cornea as opposed to under a flap created for LASIK.
  • Near Vision CK – A procedure using radio frequency to steepen the curve in the center of the eye, ‘firming” the surface of the eye for improved close-up vision. This procedure is considered temporary and may need to be repeated in 2-3 years for continued benefit.
  • Implantable Contact Lenses – For patients with high degrees of nearsightedness who may not be a candidate for LASIK or PRK. A lens similar to a contact lens is implanted in the eye to change the focusing power, for improved vision.
  • Vision Correction for Aging Eyes
