We're not just dealing with what's happening now in eye care. We have an eye looking forward to be able to use the best technology that's truly available.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) March 10, 2009
LASIK and implantable contact lens vision correction surgery are two of the most popular surgical procedures designed to improve eyesight, and the Barnet Dulaney Perkins team of ophthalmologists and LASIK surgeons in Phoenix, Arizona are reaching out to individuals considering these and other treatments by utilizing the fastest-growing trend on the web: video. With a series of comprehensive web documentaries, Dr. Barnet is able to give prospective patients a better understanding of LASIK and implantable contact lenses (ICLs), as well as an overview of the state-of-the-art technologies they employ. The new videos also feature a variety of patients who have seen significant improvement after being treated for eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Since some patients can be somewhat wary of undergoing any type of surgery to improve their eyesight, the videos on the website offer visual explanations of LASIK, ICLs, and other procedures, coupled with information on what patients can expect from them. Dr. Robert Rivera, an ophthalmologist with Barnet Dulaney Perkins, says it’s important that patients understand that their facility uses the latest in technology to treat a number of eye conditions. “We’re not just dealing with what’s happening now in eye care. We have an eye looking forward to be able to use the best technology that’s truly available.”
In the web documentaries, doctors at the Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center are able to provide a broad look at not just LASIK, but also alternatives to LASIK that can help patients see even greater improvement in vision. Treatments such as the implantable contact lens give patients essentially the same benefits as LASIK surgery, but with an extra, “high-definition” aspect. Dr. Ronald W. Barnet says common eye conditions like those treated with LASIK can also be addressed with ICLs. “LASIK is not the only treatment we offer for correction of nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatism. We were the first clinic in Arizona and one of the first in the United States to use the implantable contact lens, or the ICL. The ICL can also correct patients who are not candidates to have LASIK done.” And Dr. Scott Perkins says the success rate at their Phoenix, Arizona ICL (implantable contact lenses) facility has made it one of the most popular vision improvement treatments offered at the Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center. “Being one of the facilities that puts in more ICLs than anyone else in the world – we do that for good reason, because we’ve gotten excellent results.”
The practice’s insistence on using the most advanced technology in vision care has also served as a guide in establishing its outreach to patients via the worldwide web. In addition to providing Phoenix, Arizona LASIK and implantable contact lens patients with information on laser vision correction, doctors with Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center also give details on cataract surgery and treatment options for a range of eye diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
