He has been performing LASIK in a private practice setting since 2000 and has performed thousands of successful eye surgeries.
Commitment to the best in technology. Being an MIT engineer as well as a physician, Dr. Yoon is a strong proponent of the latest in technology. He uses the VISX S4 excimer laser with 3-D active eye tracking with iris registration and custom wavefront technology. The VISX laser is the industry leader in laser vision correction and preferred by the majority of eye surgeons performing LASIK.
The VISX laser has many advantages that is not present in many other laser platforms.
Custom Wavefront technology measures and treats the unique optical imperfections of the eye. No two treatments are the same. It goes beyond conventional laser treatment which treats using your eyeglass prescription. When compared to conventional treatment it is more accurate with superior quality of vision. Night vision is also superior to conventional treatments with less night time difficulties. More patients achieve 20/20 vision with custom wavefront technology with some patients achieving greater than 20/20 vision.
The 3-Dimensional eye tracking system also facilitates proper centration of your laser treatment. The laser’s tracking system captures the movement of your eye 60 times a second and redirects the laser beam to the center of your cornea.
We have enjoyed a very high level of success with over 99% of our patients being able to drive after surgery without corrective lenses. This has resulted in a large portion of our patients being referred by satisfied previous patients.
