Alabama Vision Center Provides LASIK, iLASIK and Cataract Surgery
LASIK / iLASIK
LASIK is the number one vision correction eye procedure in the world. The Alabama Vision Center was the first in Alabama to offer iLASIK, VISX® CustomVue® Excimer Laser with Iris Registration, coupled with the IntraLase® Laser for blade-free flap creation.
iLASIK is the most advanced LASIK procedure available. The Alabama Vision Center is the only eye center in Birmingham where every iLASIK is performed by a board-certified, fellowship-trained cornea specialist. iLASIK identifies and corrects imperfections in an eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods. LASIK is a painless outpatient procedure lasting only a few minutes. Most patients who receive LASIK see well enough to return to normal activities the very next day.
Cataracts are a clouding of the eye’s natural lens that occurs as we age and can reduce vision. There is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent cataracts. To see clearly again, they must be removed. Like LASIK and iLASIK, Cataract Surgery is a painless outpatient procedure lasting only a few minutes. Patients undergoing Cataract Surgery receive an intraocular lens, which helps the eye to focus clearly; and premium ReSTOR bifocal implants, restoring natural vision without the need for bifocals or reading glasses. Patients without a cataract wishing to see more clearly can have Refractive Lens Exchange, also referred to as Clear Lens Extraction, a surgical procedure using the same modern Cataract Surgical techniques.
