procedures for quality care & amazing
Your eyes are very sophisticated organs.
Over the years, ophthalmic medicine has
become equally sophisticated, making use
of amazing new technologies and providing
benefits only dreamed about a few short
years ago. As part of their commitment to
excellence in eyecare, Drs. Forrest and
Chris Gabriels stay up-to-date with the
changes in this evolving field of medicine,
and they perform many leading-edge procedures,
some of which are offered by only a handful
of their colleagues. Here are some of the
advanced techniques they use:
- LASIK Surgery –
Using different types of FDA-approved
lasers, our doctors can correct or improve
nearsightedness, farsightedness and even
astigmatism in just a few minutes. And
if you’re not a candidate for LASIK,
they offer other vision-correction procedures
that can help you see without glasses.
- AK (Astigmatic Keratotomy)
– This simple technique
specifically addresses astigmatism and
is especially helpful in refractive cataract
- PRK (Photorefractive Keratotomy)
– This is a form of
excimer laser treatment to treat all types
of vision problems.
- No-Stitch Refractive Cataract
Surgery – Our doctors
use a state-of-the-art process called
phacoemulsification that involves the
removal of cataracts with soundwaves.
- Intraocular Lens Implant
(IOL) – This is an
artificial lens made from the same plastic
as many types of contacts that’s
implanted after a cataract is removed.
- Blepharoplasty –
Repairs baggy or droopy eyelids that are
interfering with your vision, which can
enhance your appearance, as well.
