Purpose of LASIK in Dallas

LASIK treatment has evolved considerably since its origins in the late 1980s, and Tylock Eye Care has been on the forefront of the field for the last 30 years. During this time, Dr. George and Dr. Tylock have performed thousands of LASIK procedures while practicing ophthalmology in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. A LASIK procedure involves the use of a precise Femtosecond laser to create a flap in the cornea of the eye. A different laser (an Excimer laser) is then used to reshape the cornea, correcting vision problems by improving the eye’s ability to focus. However, differences in the technologies employed and the specific procedures performed make it essential to choose an exceptional eye doctor in Dallas for LASIK care.

The Tylock Eye Care & Laser Center: A Step Above the Rest

Dr George and Dr. Tylock have years of experience practicing ophthalmology in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. They are experts in IntraLASIK surgery, an advanced procedure that uses a laser, rather than a surgical blade, to create the corneal flap. Compared to traditional LASIK, IntraLASIK is a safer procedure that provides better control for the physician and improved outcomes for the patient.
Furthermore, Tylock Eye Care is the first facility in Texas to perform not only Topography Guided LASIK or Contoura Vision, but also the first facility to utilize the state-of-the-art WaveLight Refractive Suite which employs the WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond Laser to create the corneal flap and the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser to reshape the cornea. Both of these procedures provide unprecedented control for the physician, exceptional comfort for the patient, and exceptional surgical outcomes.
