"Dr. Columbus performed Wavefront PRK on my eyes, and I could not be happier with my vision. I have better than perfect (20/15) vision. Sometimes as I drive, I marvel at how crisp and clear it is. Even at night my glare was reduced after surgery, and it makes driving at night so much better. Thank you for a job well done Dr. Columbus!"

~ Alesha Bower, Laser Vision Coordinator

“I entrusted my eyes only to my son, Dr Columbus, as he has vast experience in laser vision correction over 20 years. He also has done 20 of his family members with excellent results. Before I used trifocals and was 100% dependent on glasses. Now I use no glasses and can see clearly for far and near. I no longer use glasses thankful to my son!”

~ Frances Columbus

“When LASIK came out I had friends that did the surgery. I tried to see if I was a candidate but my eyesight and astigmatism was so bad that they did not have the technology to deal with the severity of my issues. I received an email from Dr. Columbus and thought I’d try again to see if I was a candidate. I was able to do PRK with the laser. It took about a week for the vision to come in but it was worth the wait!!! Dr. Columbus gave me the gift of sight!”

~ Georgine Meyers

“Dr. Columbus and his associates did a wonderful job! I was greeted with a friendly face and was explained thoroughly about the steps that would be completed during my surgery. Everything went very quickly and I was done before I knew it! I am very happy that I chose Dr. Columbus to do my surgery as he was very patient and understanding of all of my questions to him.”

Our Advanced LASIK Technology

Traditional Lasik

Traditional Lasik surgery can alleviate astigmatism, nearsightedness or myopia, and farsightedness or hyperopia. A laser eye surgery is just the thing for people who want to get rid of wearing eyeglasses or contacts. People who are interested in Lasik surgery will find that there are many benefits and very few disadvantages. Complications are rare with a Traditional Lasik procedure with less than 2-5% of people suffering from side effects. Lasik stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis.

Wavefront Lasik

Wavefront Optimized Lasik involves a more detailed procedure where Dr. Columbus can save the curve of the cornea to provide clearer eyesight afterward. Another personalized treatment called Custom Wavefront Optimized Lasik allows the doctor to customize the details of the surgical process to an even finer degree for exceptional results. This type of surgery is not available from any other provider in the state. Wavefront Optimized technology gives 20/20 vision to about 95% of patients.

Custom Wavefront Lasik

Custom Wavefront Lasik allows Dr. Columbus to personalize any Lasik procedure to the patient and the unique shape of their eyes. This method of Lasik eye surgery is similar to regular Wavefront Optimized Lasik surgery with one big difference. Custom Wavefront Lasik uses an analyzer that maps the shape of the eye and the position of the cornea in relation to the pupil. The laser uses this information to map the curve of the eye to find the exact level that will provide the best refraction of light to optimize the Lasik surgery results.

Corrective eye surgery for vision problems like hyperopia, astigmatism, and myopia require an outpatient Lasik procedure called PRK for photorefractive keratectomy. PRK surgery gives patient’s permanent results with no need for any glasses or contact lenses. As a minimally invasive therapy, PRK eye surgery patients are usually back to their regular schedules within a few days. This procedure is perfect for thin corneas and high prescriptions if the patient is a candidate.
