You Deserve NEWsom EYES!

Dr. Newsom is known worldwide for his innovative surgical skills and experience. One particular patient branded Dr. Newsom’s surgical results and ability when she said, “I don’t tell people I have NEW EYES, I tell them I have NEWsom EYES.” From that day forward, the phrase fit perfectly and is now used by patients describing their life-changing experience at Newsom Eye.

We offer a full range of eye care and health services, including: CataractLASIKGlaucoma, Retina, CorneaOptical, and Hearing.

Paving the Way

Technology is ever-changing, especially in the field of ophthalmology and optometry. Newsom Eye is determined to stay at the forefront of these advancements through involvement with FDA studies, on-site and off-site training of the next generation of eye surgeons, continual education of all physicians and staff, research, and involvement with professional associations. These various methods ensure that our physicians and staff are always offering the most advanced treatment methods in patient care.

Raising Standards

Newsom Eye has raised the standard in LASIK surgery by committing to the safest environment possible. LASIK procedures are performed in the same operating room as intraocular (cataract and retina) surgery. Tampa Surgery Center’s Class C operating rooms are certified by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This certification maintains the highest level of sterility in order to prevent infection or contamination during surgery, and is not required for LASIK. Dr. Newsom made the decision to go above and beyond the standards for LASIK to ensure the safest conditions for his patients. Your eyes deserve the best surgeon, using the most advanced technology, in the safest environment. You deserve NEWsom EYES!

Seeing is Believing

After surgery, our patients’ lives are forever changed. Lost vision is restored. Dependence on glasses, contacts, and/or drops is reduced or eliminated completely. Our patients finally get their life back and the freedom they once had.

Newsom Eye offers only Bladeless, Customized, Wavefront Optimized® technology treatments on all laser eye surgeries. We don’t do it any other way. While bladed LASIK may be less expensive, we choose to offer only the safest, most predictable and fastest healing procedures while giving you your NEWsom EYES.

Contoura Topoguided LASIK

Newsom Eye is excited to announce the next generation for LASIK in Tampa 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 TopolyzerVario 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.

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, allowing for 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 has performed thousands of corrective procedures and eye surgeries and was trained at the Mayo clinic. You will not find a better solution for bladeless LASIK surgery anywhere.
