Since 1996, our doctors and staff have used laser vision correction to surgically treat over 25,000 eyes in approximately 15,000 patients – reducing the need for glasses and contact lenses. We have created a high standard to ensure our patients’ safety while providing advanced technology and individual care. We make every effort to reach our patient’s desired outcome and ensure a pleasant experience.
Staying above the curve, we perform extensive pre-operative testing using the most advanced technologies. For example, the Allegro Analyzer® is the companion to our newest Excimer laser, the Wavelight Allegretto Wave® Eye Q, offering both wavefront optimized and guided options. It is the fastest, most accurate laser available to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Along-side our experienced surgeons, personalized measurements and the data derived pre-operatively from the Allegro Analyzer® provide the Wavelight Eye Q® the most precise, high-tech results. Overall, this improves our ability to obtain the desired level of vision with one procedure and helps to avoid the need for enhancements. Moreover, on a monthly basis, we track, review, and analyze our patients’ results, forecasting educated and proven decisions based on factual, concrete data.
As the Refractive Director of our laser vision correction division, I am sensitive to our patients’ concerns. Apprehension about the possibility of post-operative side effects is understandable. Our staff takes a proactive approach to educate and alleviate concerns before the procedure in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Concerns such as dry eyes are addressed before surgery by analyzing the tear production and treating the tear ducts. To detect those who are more prone to halos and glare, we take care in measuring individual pupil sizes in three different light settings. As with any surgery, individuals can respond differently to the treatment; for those who do experience side effects, like dryness, we provide very specific treatments, such as dry eye medical procedures and/or eye drop therapy. Our doctors listen to their patients’ concerns and take the time to properly educate them about their upcoming procedure. Our surgeons are involved each step of the way in the patient’s process – from pre-operative exams to same-day phone calls to follow up visits. The Beach Eye Care doctors are always available: twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. It’s the personal touch and dedication to our patients that allows us to stand out.
Since starting out as a Patient Counselor in 1999 to the present-day in my current role, I have had the personal pleasure of assisting patients in making an educated decision about vision correction choices. And in my experience, with all the advancements laser vision correction has undergone, I can honestly say that Beach Eye Care’s level of care continues to be unsurpassed in providing a high tech, high touch, caring experience.
