Vision Correction Services in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro Area
The world of corrective eye surgery is a big one. Knowing where to go for your procedure, or even which procedure is right for you, can be a daunting challenge. At Tylock-George Eye Care, we make this process easier by offering comprehensive consultations and exceptional surgeries, performed by industry-leading eye surgeons with over 40 years of combined experience.
That said, many of our patients like to know a thing or two about their vision correction options even before their consultation. That’s why we’re happy to provide explanations of our services: what they are, why we choose to offer them, and what they can do for your vision. During your initial visit, we’ll customize your vision correction plan together. If you want to learn more about the options available with Tylock-George, you can find information here on our most popular procedures, including Custom IntraLASIK, Contoura Vision, Custom PRK, and Advanced Technology Implants.
Custom Wavefront™ IntraLASIK and Contoura® Vision Topography Guided LASIK
Tylock-George is proud to have been one of the first laser eye care centers in the United States, to offer Custom Wavefront IntraLASIK and Contoura Vision Topography Guided LASIK. Our early adoption of advanced techniques like these allow us to make LASIK even safer and more precise than it was before.
Traditional LASIK surgery relied on an instrument called a microkeratome, which uses a metal surgical blade. While complications with LASIK are rare, many of the ones that do occur have been a result of how the microkeratome works. We adopted both IntraLASIK and Contoura Vision LASIK, both of which use a laser to create a much more precise and safer surgical flap, as soon as we were able as a way to further fine-tune the process of laser vision correction for our patients.
IntraLASIK and Contoura Vision LASIK are computer-controlled, all-laser procedures, utilizing different eye-mapping techniques and lasers to accomplish different parts of the procedure. Your eye surgeon will program equipment to follow measurements of your eye taken beforehand, allowing for the safest, most precise surgery possible. Even compared to the high success rates of traditional LASIK, IntraLASIK and Contoura Vision LASIK allow the team at Tylock-George to improve the process in ways you’ll find in few other laser centers across the country.
PRK is sometimes explained as a predecessor to Custom IntraLASIK, but it can also serve as a great alternative for those who don’t qualify for LASIK surgery. The factors that can disqualify you from LASIK run the gamut from complex issues like epithelial basement membrane disorder (EBMD) to simple ones like having corneas that are too thin to safely receive LASIK.
PRK is very similar to LASIK: it’s an outpatient procedure which uses a laser to correct refractive vision issues such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism by reshaping your cornea. However, unlike LASIK, PRK does not involve the creation of a corneal flap.
For many patients, IntraLASIK is a more effective solution to their refractive vision issues. PRK, meanwhile, will be more useful to people with more minor refractive vision issues, and/or those who don’t quite qualify for LASIK, but could still improve their vision with laser eye surgery. For that reason, we’re glad that we’re able to provide both IntraLASIK and PRK to our patients.
Advanced Technology Implants and Visian ICL™
Not all vision issues are refractive or solved with laser eye surgery. Issues with loss of flexibility in the lens, such as cataracts and farsightedness caused by presbyopia, are extremely common, especially as you get older.
Thankfully, the team of eye surgeons at Tylock-George are able to offer exceptional intraocular lens (IOL) implants. We provide a variety of options, including AcrySof IQ PanOptix® Trifocal, AcrySof® Toric Lens, Crystalens®, ReSTOR®, Tecnis® Multifocal Lens, and Tecnis Symfony®.
We’re also proud to offer the Visian Implantable Contact Lens (or Visian ICL™), a more dynamic and versatile alternative to refractive surgery.
These advanced artificial lenses can be perfect for solving lens issues, but they may also offer an alternative to those who aren’t a good fit for laser eye surgery of any kind. While advanced technology implants are most popular in those over 40 with cataracts or presbyopia, they can be a great option for younger patients whose needs can’t be met with refractive surgery.
