Exam by your surgeon

 
 

Doctors Mullie and Balazsi believe that considering eye surgery is one of life’s most important decisions and that the consultation and examination should not be entirely delegated to technicians or optometrists. Our philosophy as surgeons is that we must establish a relation of confidence with our patients. This can only be assured if the surgeon performs a personalized exam followed by a detailed discussion with each patient on the type of surgery and its benefits.

Fear is a normal emotion when considering refractive surgery – after all our vision is so essential to our life.  Drs. Mullie and Balazsi very well understand this fear, as they themselves have both undergone laser refractive surgery.  The time they spend with you on the day of your consultation will help you to build confidence in the Lasik procedure, the Laservue team, and your surgeon. (see "Addressing your concerns")

 

Trust

Doctors Mulllie or Balazsi will honestly discuss with you the benefits and risks of laser refractive surgery, including possible side effects and complications.  The goal is not to scare you, but rather to help you to decide what is best for you. This is what is called "informed consent".  The Doctors will answer all of your questions.

Drs. Mullie and Balazsi have acquired a vast experience over more than 20 years of laser refractive surgery.  This is the main reason insuring the safety of your Lasik procedure.  Technology is important, but dexterity, judgement and technical excellence are even more important to your safety.

 

Our results

A study of a series of our patients showed that 99.7% reached a full correction (20/20), which means that 0.3% may need a weak correction for some activities (for example for driving at night).

After "bladeless lasik", over 50% of patients achieve a vision of 20/15 that is one line better than 20/20 on the vision chart!
