Innovations In LASIK


LASIK is becoming an option for more and more people, thanks to new innovations. The Campbell Cunningham Laser Center continues to make improvements in our technology, training, and personnel to give East Tennessee the best possible center for LASIK.

Since we began offering LASIK eighteen years ago, the procedure has become more precise and capable of offering even better outcomes for our patients. Here are a few of the enhancements to LASIK that have occurred in the last few years:

More Subtle, Precise Adjustments

Today’s technology allows lasers to make very precise changes to the cornea and correct problems with vision. Lasers are able to make subtle adjustments in the shape of the cornea, so there are more gradual transitions in the corneal surface. Campbell Cunningham Laser Center uses the VISX STAR S4 IR® Excimer Laser System, the most advanced available from Abbott Medical Optics.

LASIK Is More Accurate Than Ever

Lasers can do the jobs that blades used to do because of continued advancements in computer technology. Wavescan® Wavefront Technology extremely detailed three-dimensional map of each eye, giving the physician a very clear process to follow to provide the best possible vision correction.

Every Patient Gets A Custom Procedure

Because new technology provides such detailed information about the eye’s surface, every LASIK procedure is custom-tailored to the individual. Each eye can be adjusted specifically to address nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
