Past, Present, and Future of LASIK: GulaniVision

Birth of LASIK; Decades Ago!

It has been Dr. Gulani’s privilege to share and interact with the late Dr. Jose Ignacio Barraquer (father of refractive surgery) from South America as their passions were aligned, while Dr. Barraquer introduced concepts of Lamellar Refractive and Lasik surgery and Dr. Gulani discussed his burning desire to raise it to CorneoplastiqueTM so everybody with glasses would be a candidate and the cornea would never need to be stitched or transplanted.

Despite a language barrier, Dr. Barraquer would convey to Dr. Gulani the difficulty he would face in causing such a progressive change in the mindset of eye surgeons.

Here is a picture Dr. Barraquer sent Dr. Gulani with his personal auto graph affectionately 24 years ago and his surgical footage (notice the Silk gloves).

Over decades, Dr. Gulani has continued to evolve Lasik surgery with his NexGEN LASIK technique with No Cuts, No Blades and No Flaps, attracting a Worldwide following since it can help practically every patient with glasses and contact lens to lead a life of Vision Freedom.

Dr. Nordan and Dr. Gulani:

Dr. Gulani & the late Dr. Nordan sharing their passion for the past and future of LASIK eye surgery.

Late Dr. Nordan had learned keratomilieusis (one of the earlier iterations that lead to LASIK surgery) while Dr. Gulani was individually sharing his concepts of CorneoplastiqueTM globally. Dr. Gulani met Late Dr. Nordan in the early 2000s with their mutual passion for refractive surgery and they would meet regularly while teaching at podiums worldwide.

In the span of his career, Dr. Nordan was a pioneer in refractive surgery, held five U.S. patents, one of them being a multifocal IOL, and authored The Surgical Rehabilitation of Vision, a commonly referred to textbook on refractive surgery. At the end of his career, he was a practice consultant at North County Laser Eye Associates in Carlsbad, CA and there was prestigious award named after him, Lee Nordan Achievement Award from Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today.

Dr. Gulani remembers what an honor it was for Late Dr. Nordan to travel to Florida to visit his operating room to see the birth of CorneoplastiqueTM, a unique type of vision corrective surgery, more than two decades ago. Dr. Gulani is working on a book about the procedure, which he plans to dedicate to Dr. Nordan.
