Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center is equipped with modern technologies, allowing a full examination of the patient for the presence of myopia, glaucoma, cataracts and other eye diseases, and to determine the need for Lasik.
Every year the number of people suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism increases and they are forced to use glasses or contact lenses. However, these methods of vision correction are not suitable for everyone, and not all are willing to tolerate these problems. To solve the issue of restoring visual acuity to its optimal level, laser corrective surgery should be considered. Boothe Eye Care Center is a leading ophthalmic clinic for laser correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Dr. William Boothe most often performs Lasik or IntraLasik correction surgery.
The essence of Lasik surgery is this: with a special “planer” – microkeratome – the superficial layer of the cornea is partially cut and is pushed aside like a page in a book. In the opened area, Dr. William Boothe uses the laser to change the optical power (curvature) of the cornea to remove the “extra” diopters contributing to myopia. Then the pre-cut layer of the cornea is laid back in place. The process of healing to the main part of the cornea occurs very quickly. The patient will be able to clearly see by the evening of the same day. The operation is ideal for those who suffer from myopia.
While venturing on a serious step such as an operation, it is very important to choose a medical center with which you entrust your vision.

Many patients who have been denied of laser vision correction due to the characteristics of the cornea now have a chance to correct their vision. The laser beam forms a thin section of the cornea when compared with a cut conducted by microkeratome. A combined Femtosecond laser effect is performed on a system of Intralase FS, and Wave light Allegretto 4000 using the technique of personalized ablation.
