Advanced technologies and world-renowned expertise

Doctors for Visual Freedom uses only the latest and most reliable technology to treat eye conditions and correct our patients’ vision. Our practice features a modern design and technologies such as the VISX® Advanced CustomVue™ WaveFront laser, allowing our patients extremely customized vision correction.

This Wavefront technology is able to provide an extremely detailed and complex map of the eye, so our ophthalmologists can see the unique and minute imperfections that combine to create a patient’s unique eyesight. This includes very subtle vision problems called higher order aberrations. Using this information, we calibrate the surgical excimer laser to reshape the cornea in a very unique and specific way. This treatment is 25 times more precise than standard testing and 85 percent of patients claim to have much less glare post surgery. With LASIK guided by Wavefront, our patients are able to have better vision than would ever be possible with a standard pair of glasses or contact lenses.

Our ophthalmologists have extensive experience performing LASIK surgery. The procedure begins with Dr. Golden or Dr. Foulkes opening up the cornea, or the front surface of the eye, and making a flap. After gently lifting the flap, the excimer laser is able to remove microscopic particles of corneal tissue, correcting the refractive error causing the vision problem. Once finished, the corneal flap is returning to its original place and naturally seals and heals.

The LASIK eye procedure is not painful, and most of our patients are able to return to normal activities the morning after surgery. More than 99 percent of our patients receiving LASIK eye surgery will achieve 20/20 vision, and they no longer need to rely on prescription glasses or inconvenient contact lenses to correct their vision.
