Facts are a Difficult Thing to Explain Away

Competitors may make assertions that are opinions eg “we have the best or most precise technology etc.” Our claims are fact-based with clinical studies to back them up. There are less expensive ways to perform LASIK using similar technology but clinical studies prove:
- The IntraLase laser is the safest way to make the flap (See our article on the Ziemer laser)
- CustomVue technology with AMO’s VISX Star S4 offers the highest incidence of 20/20 vision ever reported to the FDA in clinical trials and it has the potential to actually improve patient satisfaction with night vision (see our articles comparing CustomVue technology with wavefront-optimized procedures)
There does not currently exist a LASIK technology that yields superior results to iLASIK. iLASIK has the lowest risk of flap complication. iLASIK technology yields the highest level of 20/20 results and has the potential to result in better quality of vision including improved night vision.
Our view is that the ¬only advantage that Z-LASIK offers the LASIK consumer is reduced cost. We can offer similar technology at the same price as the LASIK discounters but for the discerning patient we can also offer superior technology for a minimal upcharge.
