Vision Correction for Ages 41 to 60
LASIK is performed by cutting a corneal flap and reshaping the contour of the eye with an Excimer laser. Traditional microkeratomes or newer femtosecond lasers (IntraLase) create the corneal flap incision in your eye. After reshaping the underlying cornea with the Excimer the corneal flap is replaced. The corneal flap only heals at the edge and not underneath the flap. This means the cornea flap does not add strength to the eye the way it did before the incision. This is a permanent condition.
Dr. Hedaya uses the advanced OptiLASIK laser system for the corneal contour reshaping in both the Lasik & Surface laser procedures. The OptiLASIK system allows us to develop an individualized vision correction procedure for each patient and achieve better vision correction results. Unlike any other technology, OptiLASIK offers both Wavefront-Guided treatment and Wavefront-Optimized LASIK with eye tracking capabilities. During OptiLASIK eye surgery, the laser adapts to the unique curvature of the eye, thereby delivering maximum precision and unsurpassed surgical outcomes.
ReSTOR lens implant specialist Dr Ed Hedaya now offers the ReSTOR implant for those who do not qualify for LASIK or other types of laser eye surgery. Dr Hedaya has helped many patients from New Jersey and South Jersey achieve improved vision.
Dr. Hedaya is also certified as a ReZOOM surgeon. This new technology multifocal IOL can help New Jersey and Ocean County cataract patients regain both their distance and reading vision. The webpage below describes how age affects vision and how the ReZOOM lens works to correct these changes. Feel free to visit the ReZoom website for more information.
Crystalens is a revolutionary new breakthrough in vision enhancement. It is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) replacement that focuses like the eye's natural lens, allowing for continuous vision up close, far away and all distances in between.
Implantable Contact Lens
The STAAR Visian ICL is a posterior chamber phakic intraocular lenses. Made of Collamer, STAAR's proprietary collagen copolymer, the lens rests behind the iris in the ciliary sulcus (view 3D anatomy of the eye). This unique material contains a small amount of collagen, which provides excellent biocompatibility and superior optical capability. The lens is gently folded and injected into the anterior chamber through a 3.0mm, temporal, clear corneal incision. The ICL is then carefully positioned by manipulating the footplates of the lens posterior to the iris plane and into the sulcus.
Surface Laser is a group of laser eye surgery procedures known as PRK or LASEK. Dr. Edward Hedaya is a New Jersey Surface Laser (PRK/ LASEK) specialist. This webpage provides information about why Dr. Hedaya prefers Surface Laser (PRK/ LASEK) over LASIK. He believes Surface Laser offers greater safety, both short and long term, over Lasik. This holds even if “all laser Lasik” is performed.
For Surface laser procedures, Dr. Hedaya uses the OptiLASIK system. This state-of-the-art technology combines advanced diagnostic capabilities of the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser with Wavefront-Guided treatment, thereby delivering extremely accurate results. In addition, the OptiLASIK system features eye tracking capability up to eight times faster than other lasers. It also adapts to the unique shape of each patient's eye, providing highly individualized results and better outcomes.
The safety of Surface Laser is related to the absence of a corneal flap incision is made. (Press to play PowerPoint). In Surface Laser the integrity and the strength of the corneal is better retained since no surgical flap incision is created as in Lasik. (see comparison chart).Educated patients generally wish to avoid the corneal flap incision of Lasik.
