Peruse the paragraphs below to learn how LASIK eye surgery with Dr. King can help you achieve clear eyesight without corrective lenses.
Seattle LASIK Eye Surgery
Dr. King and his medical team are committed to providing the best possible laser vision correction treatments for all of their patients. They use an array of leading-edge diagnostic and surgical technologies and carefully customize each vision correction procedure.
The King LASIK Seattle office features the Wavefront analyzer, which creates a 3-D map of the cornea showing even the minutest imperfections. This map is used to calibrate the excimer laser, which in turn gently reshapes the outer layer of the cornea (the clear outer part of the eye). King LASIK utilizes the advanced VISX Star S4 excimer laser platform, which provides extremely precise laser treatments.
King LASIK’s surgical equipment also includes the advanced IntraLase femtosecond laser. This device is a special laser used to create the corneal flap (a small slit in the outermost layer of the cornea). IntraLase eliminates the need to use a mechanical handheld device when creating the corneal flap. As a result, the risk of flap-reduced complications is significantly reduced. As a highly experienced Seattle LASIK surgeon, Dr. Joseph King is also highly experienced at using the Bausch and Lomb Z-100 laser platform. In fact, he was one of the first eye surgeons to use this configuration of laser eye surgery equipment.
Dr. Joseph King believes that the best visual outcomes are achieved through customized procedures. He personally performs a series of vision exams and eye health evaluations and develops a personalized treatment plan for each patient. He is one of the leading providers of iLASIK in Seattle. iLASIK is a sophisticated LASIK treatment that combines the latest diagnostic and surgical technologies to deliver individualized, exacting LASIK procedures.
Attentive Patient Care
As a person who has undergone LASIK eye surgery himself, Dr. Joseph King understands that LASIK patients often feel apprehensive about eye surgery. Dr. King and his medical team strive to alleviate patient anxiety by carefully explaining exactly what will happen during surgery, providing advice on how to prepare for surgery, reviewing the possible complications and explaining what they will do to minimize the risks. Their goal is to help all of their Seattle LASIK eye surgery patients feel relaxed and confident on the day of surgery.
