Custom lens replacement

Dr. Shakir performs laser custom lens replacement – an alternative to LASIK – to remove the natural lens of the eye and then replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Patients with presbyopia, which affects near vision and occurs naturally with age, can benefit from this procedure. Custom lens replacement can also correct other vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Patients who undergo custom lens replacement can enjoy improved vision and reduced dependence on corrective lenses.

Floater removal

Laser technology can also eliminate tiny specks or cobweb-like shapes that appear in the field of vision, known as floaters. During the floater removal procedure, Dr. Shakir uses a specialized laser to break up the floaters into smaller pieces that the eye can absorb. Floater removal can safely and effectively improve vision and reduce the discomfort associated with floaters. This procedure requires little recovery time and can be life-changing for those who suffer from visual disturbances caused by floaters. 

Laser cataract surgery

Laser cataract surgery uses advanced laser technology to safely and effectively remove cataracts, which are a clouding of the natural lens in the eye that can cause vision problems. During the procedure, Dr. Shakir uses a femtosecond laser to create precise incisions in the eye, allowing for the removal of the cataract with greater accuracy and efficiency. The laser also softens the cataract, reducing the amount of energy needed for removal and decreasing the risk of complications. Laser cataract surgery has high success rates and minimal recovery time, allowing patients to quickly return to their daily activities.
