Summer was growing increasingly tired of struggling with glasses while toggling between multiple computer screens for her work. She was interested in Lasik, but not sure she would be a candidate because she suffers from an astigmatism. After a consult with Dr. Sandy T. Feldman, Summer went from feeling nervous she wouldn’t be accepted for the procedure to ready to sign up for Lasik.
Patients who suffer from astigmatism were often told that undergoing Lasik would not improve their vision. Clearview Eyes has good news for those individuals: Lasik CAN correct your astigmatism. These patients turned to Dr. Sandy T. Feldman for Lasik. They are now seeing better than ever before and couldn’t be happier with the results.
“More than 14 years ago, I had Dr.Sandy Feldman providing Lasik-surgery to my highly myopic eyes; it was one of the best decisions of my life to choose her as my surgeon, and I benefitted greatly, ever since. As an inventor in ophthalmology, I had the chance to work with Dr. Feldman for many years, and I learned that she is the best. Among my inventions was the wavefront-technology, exemplified with the Wavescan wavefront sensor, which Dr.Feldman applies very successfully to customized Lasik-surgery, as one of the first surgeons in the United States. In 2012, I was awarded the “Inventor of the Year Award (Lifetime Achievement)”, presented by the Crown-Prince of Danemark in Copenhagen.” – Prof. Josef Bille
Prof. Josef Bille from the University of Heidelberg in Germany filed almost 100 patents in the field of ophthalmology and paved the way in the field of laser eye corrections. Prof. Bille’s ground-breaking invention of wavefront technology for laser eye surgery enables the mapping of aberrations in the iris and thus helps correct short- sightedness, long-sightedness, and astigmatism for millions of people worldwide.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool have identified genetic changes in a gene found in more than 12% of patients with a degenerative eye disorder. A new Genetic Link, termed ZNF469, may lead to understanding why people develop keratoconus, a degenerative eye condition in which the cornea changes leading to severe nearsightedness and high amounts of astigmatism.
