Cataract surgery, LASIK & other laser surgery procedures in Santa Ana

As the eyes age, the natural lens of the eye can become cloudy, making your vision blurry. Cataract surgery restores clear vision by removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens.

LASIK surgeries correct refractive eye errors, reducing or even eliminating the need for prescription glasses and contact lenses. If you are considering corrective eye surgery, make an appointment with one of our specialists to explore your options. Depending on your eye health and personal preferences, some procedures might be more suitable for you than others.

As an established Santa Ana eye clinic, we have performed countless cataract and LASIK surgeries over the years. Our surgeons specialize in laser and laser-assisted surgeries and possess extensive surgical expertise.

Contoura® Vision LASIK

Contoura® Vision LASIK?

Contoura® Vision LASIK is an advanced form of LASIK eye surgery that utilizes topography-guided technology to tailor the laser treatment to the unique characteristics of an individual’s cornea. This technology aims to provide a more personalized and precise correction of refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Contoura® Vision creates a highly precise and accurate map of a patient’s eyes measuring up to 22,000 unique elevation points on each eye.

Key features of Contoura® Vision LASIK include:

1. Topography-Guided Treatment:
– Contoura® Vision LASIK utilizes detailed corneal mapping or corneal topography to create a highly customized treatment plan. This map captures thousands of data points on the cornea, allowing for a more precise analysis of its shape and irregularities.

2. Personalized Correction:
– The topography-guided technology enables the laser to precisely reshape the cornea based on the unique imperfections detected in the corneal map. This personalized approach aims to address higher-order aberrations, improving not only traditional refractive errors but also the overall quality of vision.

3. Reduced Glare and Halos:
– Contoura® Vision LASIK is designed to reduce the occurrence of visual disturbances such as glare and halos, which can be associated with certain refractive errors. The customized treatment may result in improved night vision and reduced sensitivity to light.

4. Potential for Better Visual Outcomes:
– The goal of Contoura® Vision LASIK is to achieve superior visual outcomes by optimizing the correction based on the individual characteristics of the patient’s cornea.

It’s important to note that the availability of Contoura® Vision LASIK may vary, and not all LASIK centers offer this specific technology. If you are considering LASIK surgery and are interested in Contoura® Vision LASIK, it’s recommended to consult with an experienced refractive surgeon or LASIK eye doctor who can assess your candidacy and discuss the available options for personalized laser vision correction.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), is when a clear lens is implanted to replace your eye’s natural lens to correct your vision.

This procedure is often used for pre-cataract patients, as a preventative vision correction solution. Refractive lens exchange (RLE) can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Retinal Injections

Retinal injections are used to treat a variety of retinal conditions.


Canaloplasty is a surgery for the reduction of intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)

If eye drops and oral medications are not successfully lowering the eye pressure in patients with glaucoma, a doctor might discuss selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) with the patient. This can also be used as the first treatment for glaucoma.

Chalazion Surgery

Chalazion surgery involves removing a small lump (a chalazion) that develops on the eyelid.

Argon Laser Treatments

Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT) is the most common surgery performed for open-angle glaucoma. ALT helps fluids drain from the eye, reducing intra-ocular pressure that can cause damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision.

Eye Stent or Hydrus

Hydrus is a micro-stent. It is placed in the eye as a spacer for your natural fluid drainage channels.

Laser Iridotomy

Laser iridotomy is used in the treatment of acute angle-closure glaucoma. A doctor uses a laser to cut open a small hole in the iris, allowing built-up intraocular fluid to drain out and restore normal pressure levels to the eye.


These are medical conditions that affect your eyelid. Entropion is a medical condition where the eyelid is turned inward, caused your eyelashes to interact with the eyeball. Ectropion is a medical condition where the eyelid is turned outward so that the edge does not touch the eyeball.
