At Washington University we use the latest technology to get the best patient outcomes. We perform each LASIK surgery with blade-less laser technology. We also have the capability of performing topography-guided LASIK that is specific to your visual needs.

Topography-guided LASIK allows us to not only correct your nearsightedness and astigmatism, but also corrects those subtle visual imperfections that can affect night vision and contrast sensitivity. This advanced technology can help improve your odds of achieving 20/20 vision after surgery.

*Not everyone is a candidate for topography-guided LASIK


Positive outcomes are our highest priority. That is why we use the latest diagnostic technology, including epithelial mapping. Epithelial mapping is a high-tech tool used to help us decide who are good candidates for LASIK by screening out those that may be at higher risk for problems following the procedure.
