Laser Eye Surgery at Belmont Eye Center

This includes custom wavefront technology, which is used to create a "corneal map" that provides detailed measurements of the cornea's curvature; the map is used to guide the excimer laser, which reshapes the cornea in a gentle and precise manner. In addition to LASIK, Dr. Belmont offers other laser vision correction procedures such as PRK, and advanced surface ablation (ASA). Dr. Belmont meets with each patient individually to examine their specific visual needs and goals, and determine the appropriate option for laser vision correction.
