Leaders in experienced, state-of-the-art medical and surgical care for the eyes.


Refractive Surgery

Vision correction procedures can help you reduce or eliminate your dependence on eyeglasses and contact lenses. Today’s leading-edge methods improve your options as well as the quality of your postoperative vision.

At Eye Care Professionals, we are recognized leaders in refractive surgery techniques. Our ophthalmologists are among the region’s most experienced vision correction surgeons, and we have helped improve the standard of care and treatment outcomes.

In addition to our involvement in refractive surgery since its early days, we remain at the forefront of the field, including using state-of-the-art techniques we introduced and which, still, few others offer.

The standard of care… performed to a new standard

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses (LASIK) is the most widely performed type of vision correction. It consists of creating a flap in the cornea, then using a laser to precisely sculpt the cornea to the correct shape. A brief procedure requiring only a few minutes, LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. In Reno, we introduced Wavefront LASIK vision correction, which maximizes precision and individualizes the correction for each patient, optimizing results. We were also among the first in the area to use the IntraLase LASIK method. Today, we remain one of very few providers utilizing these more exacting approaches using femtosecond Laser technology to create the LASIK flap rather than the older mechanical microkeratome.

Comprehensive Options, Including State-of-the-Art Procedures

Similar to LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) involves laser reshaping of the cornea, but directly to the cornea’s surface rather than “in situ” through an open flap. While less common, PRK is still more appropriate for certain people.

In addition, our eye surgeons offer the latest advancements, which include implantable contact lenses (ICLs) and refractive lens exchange (RLE) and KAMRA corneal implants.

ICLs (Implantable Collamer Lenses) and RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange)

To put it simply, our skill and experience make it possible to implant specialized “contact” lenses inside the eye over its natural lens. And for certain other individuals, we may recommend that we exchange the natural lens for an advanced intraocular lens implant. Thanks to our unsurpassed experience and capability with techniques commonly used in cataract surgery our patients experience excellent outcomes with lasting visual improvements from both of these procedures. We are among an elite group and a small minority of area providers offering ICLs and RLE.
