What is laser vision correction (LVC)?These are refractive procedures performed with an excimer laser. The excimer generates ultraviolet light of a specific wavelength (193 nanometers) by sending high-voltage electrical energy through a cavity containing Argon Fluoride gas. The beam that is emitted has enough energy to break the bonds between the molecules that make up the tissue on your eye's surface (the cornea). Because it is a photochemical and not a heating process, it allows the surgeon to sculpt very precise amounts of corneal tissue from above without any damaging to neighboring/adjacent tissue. What is the history of the excimer laser?The excimer laser was developed at IBM in 1976, and was used to etch computer microchips. Its extreme precision with negligible damage to adjacent tissue made it a very attractive tool for other applications, and in 1983, Stephen L. Trokel, M.D., in cooperation with R. Srinivasan, a physicist, applied it to corneal tissue in a New York laboratory. The first sighted eye was treated with the excimer laser at LSU on January 14, 1987. Between 1987 and 1995 numerous laser manufacturers, including VISX and Summit Technology, worked toward U.S. approval to use the Argon Fluoride excimer laser. What procedures are performed with the excimer laser?LASIK, or laser in-situ keratomileusis, and PRK, or Photorefractive Keratectomy

The entire team at Lasik of Nevada was very warm, friendly and professional. Dr. Rothman was happy to answer questions and alleviate any fears or concerns and his witty sense of humor put everyone at ease. I highly recommend this facility and procedure to anyone considering lasik eye surgery.

A great lasik experience...

I went in to Dr. Rothman's office and was nervous about lasik surgery. Him and his staff made me feel comfortable about the procedure and informed me that it was better than it sound.



I got my half off and my vision corrected. I would recommend Dr. Rothman to anyone in need of vision correction.



I just want to say Thank you!
