LASIK Technology at TLC

LASIK Technology

At TLC San Antonio, we are committed to investing in the most advanced FDA-approved technologies. We want the very best for you, and using advanced techniques plays a pivotal role in making us industry leaders in performing successful eye surgery.

Having the most reliable and advanced LASIK technology, allows us to meet rigorous safety standards while performing Lasik Eye Surgery with precision that is second to none, meaning we can offer exceptional outcomes as well as giving you absolute peace of mind.

If you were to make a LASIK technology comparison with LASIK centers around the nation, you would find that while most of the top 25% of LASIK centers use similar technology to us, they may not necessarily possess our high-quality standards. Our surgical team goes through a rigorous process of training on a frequent basis, with a focus on safety, reliability, and approachability.

At TLC San Antonio you can be assured that our highly qualified and experienced surgeons only use the most advanced LASIK technology available, including:

The Alcon Femtosecond Laser creates a precise flap, with a level of precision that significantly reduces the possibility of complications. This laser has the highest safety margin per FDA study results.

This is the most popular laser in the country and offers increased accuracy and a custom treatment tailored especially to you. The Alcon EX 500 has the lowest glare levels of any laser.

We can assess your suitability for laser eye surgery and test your likely outcome ahead of the procedure using this advanced corneal scanner. By checking for complications such as corneal ectasia and keratoconus, we can offer increased safety margins and positive outcomes.

The key to giving you clear vision is getting the right refraction, otherwise known as the prescription in your glasses or contact lenses. Using two analyzers enables us to get the most precise refraction possible as well as diagnosing problems with glare and ghosting.

We use several pieces of advanced equipment in our center, enabling us to diagnose a range of conditions including glaucoma, retinal detachments, and corneal and retinal abnormalities. This diagnostic equipment enables us to treat all eye emergencies in the same location.
