In View, the educational TV series hosted by broadcast icon Larry King, interviewed Jonathan Christenbury, MD of the Christenbury Eye Center in North Carolina for its upcoming episode on the Discovery Channel on May 15, 2013, at 7am EST and PST. The episode includes a 5-minute segment about laser eye surgery at Christenbury Eye Center with the doctor and his staff. Dr. Christenbury’s segment includes an overview of several common and leading edge vision correction procedures, including LASIK®, Visian ICL®, Laser ReSTOR® and Catalys® Laser Cataract surgery.

This segment of the show demonstrates the latest advances in technology and procedures for vision-saving and correcting procedures. For example, Dr. Christenbury’s latest laser, the Catalys Laser by OptiMedica®, provides a safer, more accurate and faster process for removing cataracts and allows for simultaneous astigmatism correction. The procedure is so far advanced that patients are now being treated right in the office and often the same day as their consultation.

Our lasers pulse 500,000 times per second and are 10 times more accurate than prior lasers,” says Dr. Jonathan Christenbury, Director of the Christenbury Eye Center. “We’re honored to demonstrate our advanced technologies for Discovery Channel viewers.”
