Laser Eye Surgery at LaserVue Eye Center
Dr. Bansal specializes in the iLASIK procedure.
Dr. Bansal was one of the first eye surgeons in California to perform LASIK eye surgery. He specializes in iLASIK, a blade-free procedure that combines several state-of-the-art technologies for precision, maximum safety and excellent vision correction results. First, Dr. Bansal obtains a unique map of the eye and creates a corneal flap using the advanced femtosecond laser. Next, he utilizes the advanced VISX excimer laser to reshape the cornea, thereby eliminating even the smallest vision flaws. Dr. Bansal was among the first eye surgeons to bring this leading-edge technology to patients in the Bay Area. He has successfully performed more than 20,000 laser vision correction procedures. For patients who are not good candidates for iLASIK, Dr. Bansal offers several alternative vision correction treatments, including PRK, LASEK, Epi-LASIK and Visian ICLs (implantable contact lenses).
Cataract Surgery at LaserVue Eye Center
In addition to laser eye surgery, Dr. Bansal performs cataract surgery using advanced microsurgical techniques and a leading-edge ultrasonic device to break up and carefully remove the eye's clouded lens. He then replaces the lens with an intraocular lens implant (IOL), restoring pre-cataract vision. Most patients who receive IOLs experience clear vision at most distances and many are able to discontinue wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses. At LaserVue Eye Center, patients can choose from a variety of lens implants, including multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR or Tecnis lenses, as well as the accommodating lens implant known as Crystalens, originally designed to correct presbyopia.
Aesthetics at LaserVue Eye Center
LaserVue Eye Center also offers a range of facial cosmetic treatments, including eyelid lift surgery, Botox injections, collagen replacement therapy, microdermabrasion, laser skin peels, laser hair removal and a variety of injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. In addition, Dr. Bansal offers Latisse, a topical medicine that promotes the growth of natural eyelashes for patients who wish to enhance the appearance of their eyes or suffer from inadequate eyelashes.
