McMann Eye Institute Partners with Leeward Laser Vision Center of Hawaii to Offer LASIK Surgery to Leeward O’ahu
Ewa Beach, O’ahu, Hawai’i – December 14, 2009 – The McMann Eye Institute & Leeward Laser Vision, LLC are proud to be the first in the State of Hawaii to offer the Bausch and Lomb – Technolas Perfect Vision technology, combined to provide the very best wavefront customized LASIK. This partnership offers unparalleled surgical experience with the best technology all in a brand new state-of-the-art LASIK surgery facility in the heart of leeward O’ahu.
Leeward Laser Vision Center of Hawaii is located at Hawaii Medical Center West and is the first (non-military) LASIK surgery center outside the city of Honolulu. For patients living in north, central, and leeward O’ahu this will be the most convenient location for first-class LASIK refractive eye surgery.
Leeward Laser Vision, LLC, and LASIK eye surgeon Dr. Michael A. McMann of the McMann Eye Institute announced today that they have begun offering their patients the latest technology in laser vision correction, commonly known as LASIK, an acronym for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis.
“This partnership between the McMann Eye Institute & Leeward Laser Vision will offer truly personalized laser vision to patients using the Technolas Perfect Vision Zyoptix Laser Vision Correction System for the treatment of near-sightedness and astigmatism,” said Dr. McMann.
“The shape of your eye varies, much like fingerprints, from person to person. The Zyoptix system maps thousands of data points on the surface of the eyeball and provides a three-dimensional picture of the shape and characteristics of the patient’s cornea. I can then personalize the treatment based upon that information. The documented results of this system from the FDA trials are outstanding,” stated Dr. McMann. “Technolas Perfect Vision offers industry leading technology built upon the foundations created by Bausch & Lomb and 20/10 Perfect Vision, and we are excited to offer our patients this state of the art technology to the residents of leeward O’ahu”
Results from a multicenter clinical trial1 within the United States for the Zyoptix system were submitted to the FDA and showed impressive patient outcomes, which include:
- 99.7% of patients said their quality of vision was improved;
- 84.7% of patients expressed extreme improvement;
- 91.5% of patients had 20/20 or better visual acuity without glasses after the Zyoptix system treatment;
- 98.8% of patients were satisfied or extremely satisfied with their results;
- 0% of patients were dissatisfied with their results;
- 98.2% of patients said they would have the procedure again.
“Data from the U.S. clinical study clearly shows that the Zyoptix technology produces excellent visual outcomes as determined by customer satisfaction,” said Dr. McMann. “Not only were more than 98 percent of the patients satisfied or extremely satisfied six months after the procedure, none of the patients were dissatisfied and there were no re-treatments during the study period. Traditional LASIK surgery can’t say that.”
The Technolas Perfect Vision Zyoptix system is unique for a variety of reasons, particularly the advanced iris registration and tracking software, and the ability to change the diameter of the laser treatment area with its advanced diagnostic system, which analyzes thousands of data points across the entire eye – to produce a personalized vision treatment plan. Technolas Perfect Vision Zyoptix system success has been proven outside the United States for many years – with more than 100,000 procedures in Europe and other parts of the world. The FDA approval has now made it available here in the United States.
