resulted in many of his new patients being
referrals. To learn more about LASIK,

The excimer laser is the device that physically corrects your prescription during surgery. Because laser vision correction is based on the microscopic removal of corneal tissue at the molecular

level, it is impossible to achieve this type of accuracy manually. No other device has provided patients the opportunity to reduce or eliminate their dependency on glasses and contacts. Although many people perceive all laser technology to be the same, there are vast differences from one laser to another. One question that should be raised prior to your surgery: Is this technology the latest in laser vision correction?

The Allegretto WaveT stands as one of the most innovative and revolutionary laser platforms available today. It utilizes a technology the WaveLight® company helped establish called WavefrontT. The development of this technology allowed a virtual map of the cornea to be created and used to guide the laser in performing customized vision correction. WavefrontT mapping improved upon the quality of vision that could be achieved because it enabled surgeons to identify and treat unique corneal irregularities that would have been impossible to detect with previous methods. This accomplishment spurred ophthalmologists to begin contemplating taking vision beyond the conventional bounds of 20/20.

In addition to being a highly sought after LASIK surgeon, Dr. Herman Sloane also offers Z-Lasik, Crystalens to correct presbyopia and Custom LASIK.

Crystalens Presbyopia Correction

Crystalens™ Presbyopia Treatment - Chicago

Many patients who are interested in LASIK require correction for both distance and near vision. LASIK can satisfy the needs of many of these patients, but patients with specific occupations and hobbies find they need better near and intermediate vision than they can achieve with LASIK.

As a result, Dr. Sloane is proud to offer Chicago Crystalens patients this exciting alternative to LASIK.

Here's a look at how it works:

After a certain age (usually mid-40s) patients who previously only required glasses or contact lenses for distance, begin to experience difficulty with near vision. This is part of the normal aging process. As we age, our crystalline lens loses the ability to change focus from near, intermediate, and distance. This is called Presbyopia.

The Crystalens procedure is an alternative to bifocal, trifocal, and multifocal glasses or contact lenses. After the Crystalens surgical vision correction procedure, patients can focus seamlessly near, far, and in between the way the eye's natural lens does when we are young.

Dr. Sloane can correct distance vision and also restore near and intermediate vision to the way nature intended, reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses. This is the most complete answer for Presbyopia.

When treating a patient receiving Crystalens in Chicago, Dr. Sloane replaces the human crystalline lens with an intraocular lens implant. This surgery is similar to standard cataract surgery, (cataracts are part of the natural aging process and generally require surgical removal after age 65.) The Crystalens procedure can be performed on patients who do not yet have cataracts, but desire clear, seamless vision at all distances. After the Crystalens procedure, patients will not require cataract surgery later in life.

Dr. Sloane has achieved excellent results using with the Crystalens surgical vision correction procedure. Lifestyle enhancements include everything from reading to night driving, and even checking price tags without reading glasses. These are just some of the improvements our patients mention while describing the freedom surgical vision correction has provided them.

In addition to providing modern treatment for presbyopia, Dr. Herman Sloane is also an experienced Chicago laser eye surgery specialist who offers Z-Lasik and performs Custom LASIK in Chicago. Crystalens can also be used to help cataracts patients regain both near and distance vision after cataract surgery.
