If you’re doing research about LASIK, you’ll read a lot about the benefits of the surgery itself: little to no pain, immediate vision correction, and quick recovery times.
The true benefits of LASIK eye surgery are the changes it makes in your life. No more reaching for glasses in the morning to read the clock, or buying bottles of contact lens solution. No more frames sliding off your nose on a hot day, or losing a contact in the middle of your workout. No more choosing between glasses or contacts on your vision benefits when you really need both. LASIK means hassle-free vision, all the time. It’s just you and your own eyes.
Here, we’ll share some information about our experts and the tools they use, how to make LASIK an affordable option for your vision correction, and answer some of the most common questions people have about LASIK. When you’re ready do take the next step, so are we.
Faster. Safer. More precise.
Ohio State has the most advanced LASIK technology available in Columbus, Ohio.
When it comes to your vision, there is no room for compromise – you want the confidence that your surgeon is using equipment and procedures that are state-of the-art. That’s why people trust their vision to Ohio State.
During your evaluation, our doctors will familiarize you with all the benefits of our LASIK process, but the most exciting feature of Ohio State LASIK is called topography-guided laser vision correction. Just like a topographic map captures changes in land elevation, Ohio State’s LASIK system maps the surface of your eye, giving our doctors the ability to develop a unique vision correction plan for you. Rather than simply treating your vision based on your eyeglass prescription, we can pinpoint and correct the smallest imperfections of your cornea and its curvature. The result is a personalized focusing surface for each patient, and each eye. Many patients experience better quality vision following a LASIK procedure than they ever had with contacts and glasses.
There’s also no moving around from laser to laser for patients once the procedure begins. Our patient table shifts from the laser that prepares your eye for correction to the one that corrects your vision. This connectivity makes the entire procedure faster and more precise, making you more comfortable.
Our new LASIK system represents a significant advancement in laser vision correction. LASIK has never been faster, safer or more accurate. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to have LASIK, now is the time.
The laser is the tool. The doctor is the difference. The place is Ohio State.
LASIK laser technology continues to make important advancements, but there’s no substitute for experience. Ohio State’s David Castellano, MD, has been performing LASIK surgeries for 20 years. Together with colleagues Amit Tandon, MD, and Rebecca Kuennen, MD, Ohio State brings nearly 40 years of combined LASIK experience to each procedure.
“We provide very personalized care," Dr. Castellano says. "You’ll always see me directly when you make an appointment at my office. Most of my patients have my cell phone number and can reach me any time. If a patient has a problem, I’ll always make time to see them. Working at Ohio State offers many opportunities to stay on the leading edge of eye care. I just keep learning.”
At Ohio State Havener Eye Institute, our doctors are here to help you make a well-informed decision about your vision, to answer your questions and address your concerns. No gimmicks, no high-pressure sales. Just the information you need to do what’s best for you.
