Laser Eye Surgery at VisionAmerica of Mobile

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

The highly skilled eye surgeons of VisionAmerica of Mobile perform laser vision correction surgery to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, thereby reducing each patient's dependence on glasses and contact lenses. VisionAmerica of Mobile was the first eye care practice in Alabama to offer blade-free LASIK with Ziemer FEMTO LDV technology. The blade-free technique uses a laser instead of a microkeratome (surgical blade) to create the corneal flap. Next, the state-of-the-art VISX Star S4 laser is used to correct even the smallest corneal flaws, resulting in optimal vision correction outcomes. For patients who do not qualify for LASIK, VisionAmerica of Mobile offers a range of alternative treatment options such as PRK and Visian ICLs (implantable contact lenses).

Cataract Surgery at VisionAmerica of Mobile

VisionAmerica of Mobile is staffed with experienced cataract surgeons who are well-versed in performing the latest no-stitch, micro-incision cataract surgery. In addition to removing cataracts, the surgeons are well-trained in the implantation of premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) to restore each patient's vision following cataract surgery, including AcrySof ReSTOR and Toric (astigmatism correcting) lenses. AcrySof ReSTOR can also be used to correct presbyopia, an age-related condition affecting the eye's ability to focus on near objects. Cataract surgery at VisionAmerica of Mobile is a highly successful treatment that allows most patients to achieve 20/20 vision and gain complete freedom from traditional eyewear.

For patients who do not qualify for LASIK, VisionAmerica offers a range of alternative treatment options such as PRK and Visian ICLs (implantable contact lenses).

Near-perfect vision can be achieved through laser eye surgery in as little time as it takes to play a round of golf or enjoy an afternoon with your loved ones.

VisionAmerica eye surgeons also perform the latest no-stitch, micro-incision cataract surgery with intraocular lens implants, including AcrySof Toric astigmatism-correcting lenses — and AcrySof ReSTOR, which can also be used for presbyopia correction.
