Welborn Clinic's Laser Vision Center is conveniently located at Welborn Clinic East. We feature two lasers for very different needs.
Our argon laser is use to treat vascular conditions of the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy. The procedures performed with this laser are medically-required and covered by insurance.
LASIK Vision Correction Laser
Our Bausch & Lomb Technolas Scanning Laser is used for LASIK vision correction. The term LASIK literally means 'to reshape the cornea from within using laser.' After drops are used to numb the eye, a small flap of tissue is gently lifted from the front of the cornea. The laser is then used to reshape the cornea into a flatter curvature, this procedure lasts 10-90 seconds. This results in an immediate decrease in nearsightedness and astigmatism. The flap is then replaced and heals without the need for stitches.
