Any eye condition treatable with a laser can now be completely cared for in the Tullahoma Eye Care Center laser surgery center. We have access to five different lasers.
Excimer Ultraviolet Laser
1) This laser was used for vision correction with LASIK for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, otherwise known as LASIK. Hear what our patients have to say about their surgeries. Learn more about refractive surgery.
2) The carbon dioxide ultrapulse laser can lift away facial wrinkles and remove excess lid skin. This is done by the ophthalmic plastic surgeon that visits our office once a month from Nashville, Kimberly Klippinstein, MD, and Ralph Wesley, MD.
3) Visudyne laser, photodynamic therapeutic treatment (PDT) is laser that is used for wet macular degeneration and can often times be used in concert with injectable treatments known as Lucentis or Avastin by the Eye Care Center retina specialist R. Craig Collier, MD.
4) the argon blue-green laser. This laser is used in glaucoma and diabetes at the Eye Care Center.
5) The infrared YAG laser, which is presently housed at the Tullahoma Eye Care Center, is used for regrowth or capsular opacification after cataract surgery. The Tullahoma Eye Care Center ophthalmologist, Dr. Collier and Hunter W. Norris, MD, use laser eye surgery when necessary to correct conditions of the eye, avoid costly hospitalization, and being able to provide the convenience of not having to leave town for expert laser treatment that are all approved by the FDA. Often times, the patients’ families can even be present in the room with the patient and even watch while the laser procedure is being done.
