Dr. Paul Azar is one of the pioneers of refractive surgery in Louisiana. No other eye clinic in Lafayette, LA or Acadiana has more years of combined experience in refractive surgery than Azar Eye Clinic. LASIK has become synonymous with refractive surgery, but there are actually multiple and different methods of correcting vision. We perform LASIK, all-laser LASIK, wavefront guided LASIK, epi-LASEK, PRK, PTK, and advanced surface ablation. All of these types of treatments are collectively referred to as “refractive surgery”.
Azar Eye Clinic and Laser & Surgery Center of Acadiana are proud to be the first clinic in Louisiana to offer the next generation of laser eye correction, the Technolas Perfect Vision 217-A laser. This FDA-approved excimer laser is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism; as well as, having the advantage of an included eye tracking and iris recognition. The wider treatment zones this laser allows also reduce the risk of night glare and halos.
In order to provide the best patient outcomes, our physicians hold a LASIK roundtable discussion where our four experienced refractive surgeons collectively review each case in-detail to determine the best treatment plan for each patient. Our LASIK surgery center is on-site and attached to our building so there is no traveling for your convenience and safety.
We encourage our patients to research the LASIK procedure through former patients, the internet, and even other doctors. We instruct them to ask as many questions as possible, which can be answered during the exam. The most satisfied patient is one who has realistic expectations and a thorough understanding of the procedure. We welcome the opportunity to inform you of every aspect of laser refractive surgery to help you make an informed decision.
