GALVESTON, TX, September 23, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For Bernard Milstein, M.D. of The Eye Clinic of Texas, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the Zeiss VisuMax Laser for SMILE (Small Lenticule Intrastromal Lens Extraction) Laser Vision Correction of Nearsightedness is another "tool" in his refractive surgery "toolbox" with which he can help patients achieve their goals of seeing clearly for distance without the need for glasses or contact lenses. "Over the past 25 years I have had many opportunities to be a part of the development of several lasers and new techniques for LASIK and Laser Vision Correction and then been able to apply them to everyday practice to improve outcomes and patient satisfaction," shared Dr. Milstein. "In 1991, we started working with eye laser researchers and manufacturers to continually find ways to make laser vision correction safe, effective and predictable. We are always trying to use laser technology to further improve patient satisfaction, through optical and outcome precision, but more importantly, by making LASIK and Laser Vision Correction procedures more comfortable with even quicker visual recovery as this is what really makes patients the happiest," explained Bernard Milstein, M.D.
"About two and half years ago we obtained the first Zeiss VisuMax Femtosecond Laser in Texas and used it to perform All Laser LASIK for our patients. Based on our "hands on" real world experience over that time, we are pleased to have the FDA approval of SMILE to give us another alternative clinical tool to help patients reduce or eliminate their nearsightedness. SMILE, or Flap free LASIK, is a one step procedure to perform refractive corrections. It offers a significant improvement for many patients who may be a candidate for it.
Since we started using the Zeiss VisuMax Femtosecond Laser, patients have been very happy with the comfort and the quick and precise results. They have also been quite happy with how we have made LASIK and Laser Vision Correction so affordable that it is pretty much within reach for anyone who wants freedom from the hassle of glasses or contacts," shared Dr. Milstein.
