Laser Vision Correction at VisionAmerica of Birmingham

the state-of-the-art VISX Star S4 laser

VisionAmerica of Birmingham offers iLASIK (all-laser LASIK) for optimal vision correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It was the first eye care practice in the state to offer this blade-free laser surgery. The iLASIK technique uses a laser instead of a microkeratome (surgical blade) to create the corneal flap, a thin piece of tissue that is lifted from the surface of the eye to expose the underlying cornea. Next, the leading-edge VISX Star S4 laser is used to correct each Birmingham LASIK patient's unique refractive errors, leading to near-perfect vision and reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses. VisionAmerica of Birmingham offers a range of alternative treatment options for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK, including PRK and Visian ICLs (implantable contact lenses).

Cataract Surgery at VisionAmerica of Birmingham

In addition to LASIK, VisionAmerica of Birmingham eye surgeons also perform the latest no-stitch, micro-incision cataract surgery. During the procedure, the eye's crystalline lens is extracted and replaced with an artificial implant for clear postoperative vision. Intraocular lens implants (IOLs) offered at VisionAmerica of Birmingham include AcrySof ReSTOR and Toric (astigmatism correcting). AcrySof ReSTOR can also be used to treat presbyopia, an age-related loss of reading vision. Cataract surgery at VisionAmerica of Birmingham is a highly successful treatment that allows most patients to achieve 20/20 vision and gain complete freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

The surgeons at VisionAmerica of Birmingham use the most up-to-date intraocular lenses and laser eye technology.

Additional Eye Care Services at VisionAmerica of Birmingham

Besides vision correction procedures, VisionAmerica of Birmingham offers effective treatment and management of complex eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and strabismus, along with corneal transplant surgery and oculoplastics procedures such as eyelid surgery.
