ORLANDO, FL, February 23, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Laser vision correction can increase both your accuracy and confidence out in the field when hunting, says the founder of Central Florida's only 3D LASIK center.
"With hunting, it is about persistence and patience, but it's also about being completely prepared at any moment," says Joel Hunter, M.D., the founding surgeon at Hunter Vision in Orlando. "Glasses can be frustrating with fogged-up lenses during temperature changes or with even light rain. Contact lenses can oftentimes provide an inferior quality of vision to an eye that actually sees well."
It may only be a coincidence that his last name is Hunter, but Joel has been a hunting enthusiast his entire life. He says that he has personally experienced the benefits of LASIK in the great outdoors.
"Whether it is looking down iron sites or drawing a bow back, doing it without a glasses frame in the way—and having a super-clear read on your target—is a huge advantage," he says.
Using a new generation of diagnostic equipment and ultra-modern lasers, Dr. Hunter is able to perform the finest and most precise vision correction procedures available today. He uses the ALLEGRETTO WAVE Eye-Q excimer laser with wavefront optimized technology. Its high-speed eye-tracker follows the eye's fastest movements, checking the eye's position hundreds of times per second while ensuring an accurate placement of each laser pulse on the cornea.
Last summer, Dr. Hunter performed the surgery on his brother (and regular hunting partner), Josh Hunter, CEO of Hunter Vision. The results? "He did my surgery in July and in early bow season, I shot my first buck with my bow through my new eyes. It was amazing," Josh says.
Using this technology, vision can be corrected at any age "from 18 to 88," Dr. Hunter notes. It's safe, and it's permanent. In fact, with the advent of "blended vision," Dr. Hunter is able to treat the eyes in a way that will allow for both reading and distance vision without glasses. Additionally, current studies on this new generation of technology have shown that the average incidence of glare and halo after laser surgery is actually less than before the procedure.
He concludes, "3D LASIK will give you an edge that you'll enjoy this season and for many seasons to come."
