This new technology allows our surgeons to provide a safer, more accurate procedure with high quality visual outcomes that meet our patients expectations.
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
For more than 20 years, Durrie Vision has been dedicated to the pursuit and development of the latest innovations in laser vision correction and eye care. Dr. Daniel Durrie—who himself has performed more than 40,000 refractive procedures—says this commitment to technology enables him and his team to provide their patients with the safest and most effective procedures available.
To bolster their commitment to ophthalmic technological advancement, Dr. Durrie is announcing the latest addition of the LenSx® Laser to their arsenal of laser eye surgery procedures, making Durrie Vision the only practice in the Midwest, and one of six in the world to offer this innovative technology. Dr. Durrie says he is proud to reveal the addition of the LenSx® Laser because it is changing how traditional lens and cataract surgery is performed, and enables his Durrie Vision team to provide the best care possible.
Dr. Jason Stahl is a refractive surgeon at Durrie Vision specializing in refractive lens procedures. He says the LenSx® uses the same technology that revolutionized the LASIK vision correction procedure, thus increasing the accuracy, safety, and precision of traditional refractive lens surgery. In addition to the improved effectiveness and safety, Dr. Durrie adds that the new technology allows their patients to maintain their active lifestyles without much interruption. “Patients are now requesting lens replacement earlier in life at the first signs of age related lens changes. The average age of our lens replacement patient is 54. This new technology allows our surgeons to provide a safer, more accurate procedure with high quality visual outcomes that meet our patients expectations.”
