LASIK

LASIK surgery (Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular type of laser vision correction that is used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

How does LASIK surgery work?

With LASIK surgery, an excimer laser reshapes the inner layers of the cornea, the transparent dome that covers the front of the eye, to enable light rays to focus properly onto the retina (the tissue that lines the back of the eye).  Depending on the type of vision problem, the cornea will be treated to have a steeper, flatter, or more rounded curvature.

WHAT IS LASER EYE SURGERY?

Laser eye surgery is a term widely used to define procedures that correct refractive errors in the eye (which lead to impaired vision), with the help of a highly focused light.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Based on a full optical system analysis, an ophthalmologist can ascertain which type of laser surgery is necessary for you to attain clear vision. The different types are:

  • LASIK
  • PRK
  • LASEK
  • Epi-LASIK

WHAT IS A CATARACT?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside your eye and is considered a normal part of the aging process. When light rays enter a healthy eye, they pass through the naturally clear lens where they are focused onto the retina to provide a clear image. When light rays enter an eye with a cataract, they are distorted which creates a hazy or blurred image.

WHEN IS TIME TO THINK ABOUT CATARACT SURGERY?

Cataract surgery is recommended once your vision starts to interfere with your daily activities. An examination by your eye doctor along with a discussion of your vision complaints will determine if it is time to proceed with surgery.

LATISSE

Latisse is an eye lengthening cream and a prescription drug that works to eliminate the problem of inadequate eyelashes. A daily application of Latisse will in due time convert less into more, and has what it takes to make eye lashes darker, longer and more luscious.

Important Safety Information

If you plan to use Latisse to enhance eyelashes and are already suffering from intraocular pressure, it is a good idea to consult the doctor so as to monitor the eye pressure.

If you’re sensitive to certain medications, prone to allergies or planning to get pregnant, consult a doctor before starting to use Latisse.

Retina

The retina is an extremely fragile tissue that lines the eye’s back wall, consisting mostly of nerves. It is responsible for sending nerve impulses according to the light reflected against it, to the brain, which then forms images based on those impulses. Thus, if the retina is damaged, the images created in the brain will not be accurate, bringing about a change in your vision.

Types of Retinal Diseases

  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Retinal Detachment

What our patients have to say

We are reliable & trusted
  • I cannot say enough good things about both Dr. Eric Poulsen and his entire office staff. I recently had LASIK completed and I could not have been better taken care of. Dr. Poulsen is extremely knowledgeable and truly an expert in his field. In addition, he is compassionate, listens, cares, and puts people at ease. The same can also be said about the other health care providers that work in his office. Each person that interacted with me was thoughtful, kind, and considerate. Also, the office worked like clockwork – everyone was on time and attentive. From this point forward, there is no other eye professional I will go see and I would recommend Dr. Poulsen to all my friends and family. Simply put, from my perspective, he is the absolute best!

  • I had LASIK done about a month ago and love the results! Dr. Poulsen and the staff were great to deal with and it was a great experience.

  • Pleasant office and staff. Didn’t wait long at all. Dr. Salahuddin was fantastic. Personable, knowledgeable, and seems to care about patients. Went above and beyond.

    Izzy Z.
  • I recently had cataract surgery that was done by Dr. Poulsen. I have been a patient for a zillion years. He is kind and takes time with each patient. The down side is the amount of time you have to wait in the office before being seen. My suggestion, schedule your appointment for the beginning of the day, or the first one after lunch.

    Nancy C.
  • The entire experience was outstanding. Dr. Poulson is great, precise, and takes care of you as a patient. I had to go back for an enhancement to one eye, but the miracle of seeing without glasses far makes up for re-doing the process on one eye. Great staff, great experience.

    Brett Barnard
  • I have been seeing Dr. Poulsen and Dr. Hiyama for several years and they are both great. I finally took the plunge last month and had LASIK surgery performed by Dr. Poulsen and the results are terrific!!

    David F.
  • Great place with highest technology and great customer care! They are sure to make you feel at home.
