Austinites Looking at LASIK Want to Know: Which Laser Technology Is Best?

Dell Laser Consultants Offers the Widest Selection of New LASIK Technologies in Austin

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 22, 2013) - One of Austin's top laser eye clinics, Dell Laser Consultants, www.dellvision.com, offers patients the most advanced and widest selection of LASIK technologies available in the Austin area including the only pupillometer -- designed to help ensure quality vision post LASIK -- in the city.

"My research for the FDA has helped bring new laser treatments to the US," said Dr. Steven Dell, medical director at Dell Laser Consultants (DLC). "My continued work in the development and refinement of new instruments means DLC can offer LASIK technologies often years before they are available elsewhere in Austin."

DLC treats adult patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism to reduce or eliminate their need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The state-of-the-art LASIK technologies the clinic uses include:

  • Next-generation excimer lasers. Today's advanced vision corrective lasers can benefit those patients with more extreme vision prescriptions.
  • Femtosecond laser technology. An ultra-precise laser creates flaps shown to benefit those with thinner corneas.
  • Wavefront technology. This technology creates a high-definition measurement of the eye unique to each patient and details minute irregularities on the surface of the cornea that contribute to quality of vision. This map guides the excimer laser, making customized corrections possible and increasing the percentage of patients seeing 20/20 and better.
  • Infrared Pupillometer. DLC uses a pupillometer to measure maximum pupil size in the dark to ensure the safety and outcome of the LASIK procedure. Dr. Dell was one of the first in the U.S. to offer this technology.
