Humans have long searched for ways to correct their imperfect vision. Eyeglasses first appeared in 13th-century Italy. The first contact lenses made their debut in Switzerland in 1888, and were made from hand blown glass. Today there are a plethora of amazing options for correcting vision, and all of this amazing innovation has culminated in the advanced LASIK procedure now available to Tampa residents at Newsome Eye.
LASIK has moved far beyond what it was when it first received FDA approval in the 1990s. Since it became the world’s most common elective procedure in 2002, great strives have been made to advance the procedure in safety, accuracy and results. LASIK today is so safe and effective, in fact, that the U.S. military approved its use on their pilots and NASA approved it for its astronauts.
At Newsome Eye, we are changing the way LASIK is performed by setting a new standard. We use only Bladeless, Customized, Wavefront Optimized® technology for LASIK. Dr. T. Hunter Newsom wants to ensure that he always provides Tampa residents with the most advanced, effective and fastest healing procedures available. Another thing that sets Newsome Eye apart is that while many LASIK providers operate out of an office or retail space, we believe that your vision correction procedure deserves the same sterile surgical environment as any other surgery. That is why we use a state-of-the-art surgical center. The Tampa Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This is the highest nationally recognized standard of care for outpatient surgery centers.
Many people still have fears or concerns when it comes to LASIK. We are happy to address these and any other questions you may have. Contact us in Carrollwood, South Tampa, or Sebring today to schedule a free consultation and learn why you deserve NEWsome Eyes!
