If you are considering having laser vision correction (LASIK), your goal is to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. At Newsom Eye, our goal is to go well beyond that. We want you to have the quality of vision, improved lifestyle, and peace of mind that thousands of patients have found with their NEWSOM EYES.
What is LASIK Eye Surgery?
The word LASIK is an acronym for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis. This procedure uses a laser to change the shape of the cornea to allow light to focus directly onto the retina. This refocusing of light is what allows patients to regain clear vision and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. LASIK is one of the most commonly performed elective procedures in the world. LASIK is an efficient and virtually painless procedure, resulting in the majority of our patients seeing 20/20 or better the very next day. Newsom Eye Custom LASIK goes a step further by providing patients with the expertise of our highly experienced surgeons along with the latest technology to offer unique treatment options for every patient.

Contoura Topoguided LASIK
Newsom Eye is excited to announce the next generation for LASIK with Contoura. The Wavelight Contoura Topographic Guided laser system is one of the most technologically advanced excimer laser systems available in the United States. In the FDA study, this laser technology produce the best results compared to previous FDA studies for myopia (nearsightedness) and myopic astigmatism (nearsightedness with astigmatism). This major leap forward in technology utilizes the WaveLight® Topolyzer ™ VARIO analyzer, which is capable of capturing extremely detailed maps of the cornea, using 22,000 data points. This information is used to analyze aberrations and corneal abnormalities.
Once a patient’s unique vision is captured using the WaveLight® Topolyzer™ VARIO analyzer, the data is transferred to the WaveLight® Contoura computer. Next, the treatment is calculated using measurements from the analyzer data as well as information from the patient exam. As a result, a highly detailed and precise level of vision correction is developed that can allow for improved night vision, a better quality of vision, and often produces better than 20/20 vision. The ability to provide unique treatment options for every patient is how we provide exceptional results and service with Newsom Eye Custom LASIK.

Femtosecond Bladeless LASIK Technology
At Newsom Eye, we utilize All-Laser LASIK technology with the femtosecond laser. This technology replaces the older, outdated microkeratomes, i.e., "manual blades" of the past. Femtosecond laser technology virtually eliminates complications that were associated with outdated microkeratomes, and it also provides a more precise and predictable outcome.
Bladeless LASIK technology works by utilizing computer-guided software to create a tiny series of bubbles within the cornea. The bubbles are extremely tiny and concentrated, allowing for the protective corneal flap to be created. By using an ultra-precise femtosecond LASIK, patients that were previously not deemed good candidates for LASIK, due to thin corneas or other issues, might be good candidates with this bladeless LASIK technology.
Along with Contoura Topographic Guided technology, this advanced bladeless LASIK technology produces the finest results available. Dr. Newsom and our team have helped thousands of patients enjoy their best vision with their NEWSOM EYES!
AAAHC Surgery Center
The number one question we hear in our eye centers is, “How safe is LASIK?” We always answer with, “Your safety is our top concern at Newsom Eye.”
We believe that the safer we make your LASIK surgery procedure, the easier it is to choose Newsom Eye. We have set high standards to guide us through the LASIK procedure. Unlike other LASIK centers, we apply the same safety standards to a Newsom Eye Custom LASIK surgery that we also apply to cataract surgery, lens replacement surgery, retina surgery, or any other intraocular surgery. Additionally, we treat our patients the same way that we treated our family and staff that have chosen the Newsom Eye LASIK surgery procedure.
Newsom Eye has changed the way bladeless LASIK eye surgery is performed. Many LASIK providers operate out of an office location or even in a strip mall. We offer a state-of-the-art LASIK surgery center. Newsom Eye sets a higher standard for surgical facilities, using only accredited, sterile surgical centers for total vision care.
Our surgery centers are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This is the highest nationally recognized standard of care for outpatient surgery centers.
