"Prelex" is perfect for people aged 45 and older. Like Lasik, it uses lasers, but unlike Lasik, it delivers distance, middle and near vision in both eyes.

He specializes in the most technologically advanced methods of refractive laser surgery, including the ultra precise Wavefront, 3D ActiveTrak and Variable Spot Scanning used to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatisms.
