THE EYES HAVE IT

Personal, State-of-the-Art LASIK Surgery From Perraut Laser Eye Centers

Assembly lines might work well for the automobile industry, but they are the last thing someone considering LASIK surgery wants. Yet with the growth of large, cookie-cutter LASIK clinics, many patients may never meet the person who will operate on their eyes until the day of the procedure.

That never happens at Perraut Laser Eye Centers. “I get to know my patients before surgery,” says Dr. Edward Perraut, who has treated everyone from professional baseball and football players to neurosurgeons and Marine Corps snipers. “I ask them what they do for a living because everyone is different. They have different fears, different concerns. By finding out what is important to them I can address those fears and customize their treatment.”

And sometimes that means no treatment at all. Dr. Perraut turns down about 20 percent of the people he sees for consultations. “I only treat candidates who I know will have a successful outcome and for whom the outcome is the best answer.” He recalls on patient who preferred to do fine, detailed work up close without his glasses. “When I pointed out to him that after LASIK surgery he would need ‘readers’ to do that kind of work, he decided he didn’t want the procedure. And that’s OK.”

Dr. Perraut has performed more than 50,000 LASIK procedures, and he says each patient tells him afterward, “I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner.” But the doctor knows. “The only one real reason why people don’t get this done is because they are afraid. After all, it’s human nature to avoid fear,” he says. But Dr. Perraut counters that fear with four basic facts:

•  LASIK does not hurt.
•  It takes five minutes per eye (in fact, the actual laser time per eye is less than 10 seconds.)
•  He talks to his patients throughout the procedure.
•  There is nothing the patient can do to mess it up.Given the advances in equipment and technology, Dr. Perraut encourages anyone who has thought about LASIK surgery in the past to consider it once again. “Our field is changing very rapidly,” he says. “We can now fix astigmatism and other conditions that we couldn’t correct before. We are seeing advances in our field every year that enable us to now treat patients who we couldn’t have helped even as recently as three or four years ago.”

With offices in Chevy Chase and Charlottesville, Va., Perraut Laser Eye Centers make LASIK surgery accessible to patients regardless of where they live or work. A consultation with Dr. Perraut is free and he promises that within two minutes of meeting and examining a potential patient he will know whether they are a candidate for LASIK. “So why not come in?” he asks.

LASIKPRO Laser Eye Center Brings Fastest and Most Advanced Eye Tracking Technology for Better Results to Charlottesville

LASIKPRO Laser Eye Center in Charlottesville is now utilizing the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser that has the fastest and most advanced eye tracking technology available for better results. LASIKPRO is the only laser center to offer this technology in Charlottesville. Charlottesville, Virginia (PRWEB) December 20, 2010 –LASIKPRO Laser Eye Center now utilizes the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser that has the fastest and most advanced eye tracking technology available for better results and the highest approval ratings.

L. Edward Perraut, Jr., M.D., owner and head LASIK surgeon at LASIKPRO, left the TLC Laser Eye Center in Charlottesville in order to start his own practice: LASIKPRO. He has practiced laser vision correction in Charlottesville for the past 12 years and will continue to perform LASIK in Charlottesville. Dr. Perraut also uses this same state-of-the-art laser in his other LASIKPRO center.

The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser is one of the newest, most advanced lasers on the market and is the first laser system to receive approval for the treatment of both nearsightedness and farsightedness. It can also treat a wider range of patient prescriptions than any other laser and has unparalleled customization abilities. The laser is part of the “WaveFront Optimized” system that not only corrects a patient’s vision, but also possesses a unique eye-tracking system that is able to adjust to the position of the patient’s eye at any given time.

The advanced eye-tracking technology moves faster than a patient’s eye, so if the patient’s eye moves during the vision correction process, the laser stops and waits for the eye to move back into position before proceeding. This allows it to be the fastest laser on the market while maintaining extreme precision and safety. Its unmatched speed, safety and precision have earned this laser the highest approval ratings.

Dr. Perraut is a highly experienced LASIK surgeon having performed more than 45,000 procedures, ranking him in the top 5% of LASIK surgeons nationwide. He has been performing laser vision correction in Charlottesville for the past 12 years and continues his service in the area by opening LASIKPRO.
