Dr. Amjad Khokhar Brings New Laser Vision Correction Procedure to Sugar Land and Houston
Award winning master eye surgeon introduces revolutionary i-LASIK to the region
PR9.NET July 07, 2008 - Houston, Texas - Award winning eye surgeon Dr. Amjad Khokhar is bringing a revolutionary new laser vision correction procedure to Sugar Land, Texas and the surrounding region. i-LASIK is the amazing new eye surgery that is ridding people of glasses and contact lenses with unprecedented safety and accuracy.
The new i-LASIK procedure represents a culmination of advancements over the last 20 years of laser vision correction. i-LASIK is the final frontier with nothing new on the horizon. Patients no longer need to be confused about what the best technology is and whether LASIK is still being improved. "i-LASIK is what surgeons and patients have been waiting for," explains chief surgeon Dr. Amjad Khokhar. "The procedure is finally 100% laser, 100% blade-free, and 100% customized."
The first part of i-LASIK is to gather a wavefront using the Customvue WaveScan. A wavefront is like a "fingerprint" of the eye. i-LASIK's wavefront-guided treatments correct the tiny imperfections of your eye so that your best vision is achieved. Other lasers, such as the Allegretto(TM), are not wavefront-guided, but are "wavefront-optimized," a less sophisticated customization in which the treatment pattern is modified according to preprogrammed laboratory data rather than the individual characteristics of the eye being treated.
The second part of the procedure is to create a custom corneal flap using IntraLase, an amazing new laser with unprecedented safety. Before IntraLase, a microkeratome, which is essentially a surgical blade, was used to create the corneal flap. Now, a customized flap is created with a laser so that the procedure is all-laser and completely blade-free.
Finally, the treatment is completed with the VISX laser which fixes the curvature of the cornea so that light can be correctly focused. This laser has exclusive features that have made it the number one LASIK laser. For example, VISX is able to follow the patient's eye movements in 4 directions. In addition to 3 dimensional tracking, the new iris registration feature allows the laser to compensate for any rotation of the eye.
Dr. Khokhar is the chief surgeon and medical director of the recognized Sugarland Eye & Laser Center. He also teaches young physicians. He is one of a select group of eye surgeons who is certified to perform the new i-LASIK procedure. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Texas Medical Association, and Harris County Medical Society. He has been named one of America's top LASIK surgeons by the Consumer Research Council.
