iLASIK Surgery – “It simplified my life.”

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 
   

PrintWould getting rid of contacts or glasses for good make your life a little easier?  South Georgia Eye Partners offers the latest iLASIK technology, and our physicians are top-notch. Alice Johnson is a perfect example of how iLASIK surgery can literally simplify your life.

Alice is extremely involved in missionary work, and has traveled as far as Uganda to help underprivileged communities through her church.  She noticed on one such mission trip that keeping up with her contacts – cleaning them, changing them out daily, etc. – was proving to be quite a hassle when traveling overseas.  Alice happened to be on the mission trip with Dr. Wes Ross, and they began discussing her eligibility for iLASIK.  They both decided she was a great candidate for the surgery.

For people who have refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, iLASIK surgery could be the solution.  The latest in laservision correction technology, iLASIK (laster-assisted in situ keratomileusis), uses a laser to cut the corneal flap instead of a traditional blade.

Dr. Scott Petermann and Dr. Wes Ross with South Georgia Eye Partners perform iLASIK surgery in our Valdosta location (at our brand new surgery center).  Consultations and post-operative care is available in all of our locations: Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas and Madison, FL.  We are happy to answer any questions you might have in order to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.  For patients who aren’t candidates for iLASIK, we offer PRK.  Call us to make an appointment – you could be on your way to better eyesight in no time – just like Alice!

 

South Georgia Eye Partners – with locations in Valdosta, Tifton & Douglas – specializes in LASIK and cataract surgery with premium lens implants, glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive eye exams for adults and children and a Dry Eye Clinic.

South Georgia Eye Partners Now Offering iLASIK

Thursday, November 18th, 2010 
   

iLASIK – it’s the latest in laser vision correction and it’s now at South Georgia Eye Partners. An upgrade to traditional LASIK, iLASIK uses the exclusive Intralase Laser and is the preferred method of treatment for patients seeking a LASIK procedure. So what’s the difference between traditional LASIK and iLASIK? It’s all about the corneal flap. Every LASIK procedure begins with the cutting of the corneal flap, which is a thin layer of tissue that is folded back to expose the inner cornea. iLASIK, also known as Intralase, blade-free LASIK or all laser LASIK, uses a laser to cut the corneal flap while traditional LASIK uses a blade. The remainder of the procedure is conducted exactly the same. After the flap is cut, the physician proceeds with reshaping the cornea and correcting the patient’s vision.

“iLASIK is a newer, safer and more precise way to perform laser vision correction,” said Dr. Scott Petermann, ophthalmologist for South Georgia Eye Partners. “With this advanced technology, I am now able to use a laser instead of a blade, which allows me to adjust the size and shape of the corneal flap. The increased accuracy of the laser gives the patient a better, more customized flap fit.”

While results are different for each patient, other benefits of iLASIK include a reduced risk of infection and dry eye as well as faster healing time. Additionally, the use of a laser creates a thinner, more precise flap, making the procedure gentler on the eye than a traditional blade.

“The great thing about iLASIK is that it gives us an opportunity to offer state-of-the-art technology that is safe, precise and comfortable,” said Petermann. “We are excited to bring this service to South Georgia and North Florida.”

In addition to iLASIK, South Georgia Eye Partners will continue to offer specialized services such as Custom LASIK and PRK. All procedures are preformed in the on-site iLASIK suite located in the Valdosta office. No referral is necessary.
