Lasik innovations. 24 years ago I designed this special Lasik globe stabilizer to perform Lasik surgery on patients with involuntary Eye movements. Having performed Lasik surgery abroad much before FDA approved surgeons in the United States, I had already started designing instruments for complex cases that deserved vision corrective surgery. Numerous companies helped me design new technologies and instruments to further improve Lasik and make it safer and more available to those patients who were told that they are not candidates. Just this week, I used this instrument on a patient whose Eye involuntarily moved due to her extremely high farsightedness an astigmatism and lazy eye status. She is doing very well and I also used this instruments in cataract surgery patients with albinism and nystagmus . The Eyecare industry plays an important role in realizing our innovations so we can help our patients better. Thank you ASICO BRASIL For making this instrument with me over two decades ago and realizing my vision for application in complex Lasik patients.
As eye surgeons we must strive to help patients live a life of vision without glasses while also making sure they are safe and attain the best vision they can no matter how complex they may seem to begin with.
