NVISION LASER EYE CENTERS FIRST IN CALIFORNIA TO OFFER LASIK EYE SURGERY WITH THE SWISS-ENGINEERED ZIEMER FEMTO LDV CRYSTAL LINE™ LASER

 The Z-LASIK Crystal Plus™ Is the Highest Level of Laser Vision Correction Available Today

Newport Beach, Calif., March 28, 2011 – Dr. Thomas Tooma, Medical Director of NVISION Laser Eye Centers, announced today that he is the first eye surgeon in California to perform LASIK  with the Ziemer Femto LDV Crystal Line™ Laser using the Z-LASIK Crystal Plus™.

According to the Ziemer Group, there are over 90 eye surgeons in the U.S. and over 500 worldwide now using this new technology. Dr. Minoru Tomita, Executive Director of the Shinagawa LASIK Center in Tokyo, Japan, is one of those eye surgeons. With peak days of 400 patients a day in the Tokyo facility, Dr. Tomita’s clinics have successfully completed more than 250,000 LASIK eye surgeries over the past two years utilizing the Ziemer LDV laser.

“We are very proud to be able to offer our patients this proven, world-renowned technology.  This state-of-the art procedure combines the best vision results with the highest comfort and speed. Only minutes after the eye surgery, patients are amazed by the exceptional quality of their vision,” said Dr. Tooma.

A few weeks ago, Dr. Tooma began performing eye surgeries with the Ziemer Femto LDV Crystal Line™ Laser at NVISION’s main location in Newport Beach. The day after her March 11th surgery, patient Vikki Vander Woude had this to say, “I just completed my post-op with my optometrist, and she was amazed to see absolutely no signs whatsoever of any incision where the flap was made – a total reflection on the work done by Dr. Tooma and this amazing new technology.”

Dr. Tooma is looking forward to making this exciting new technology available at the many NVISION Laser Eye Centers located across California.
