LASIK in Fort Wayne, Indiana

From the day our office opened, our primary goal has been to provide each individual with the best eye care possible. Preserving your eyesight is our highest priority.

Dr. Parent has been selected by his peers as one of the "Best Doctors in America" and is listed as one of "America's Top Ophthalmologists". He is the first eye surgeon in northeast Indiana to perform Custom LASIK and implant multifocal IOLs with these elite credentials.

Dr. Parent performs Custom LASIK and Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) on the Tecnolas Perfect Vision Zyoptix Excimer Laser. Our Excimer Laser System offers the most comprehensive eye tracker available in the U.S. Our eye tracker is also the only system in the world which is capable of addressing and compensating for all eye movements during surgery. This eye tracking capability is especially beneficial for wavefront custom LASIK / ASA and treating astigmatism.

Six months after surgery with the Zyoptix system

  • 99.0% of patients reported that they were moderately or highly satisfied with their results.
  • 99.7% of patients indicated improvement in quality of vision, of which 40% reported improvement in night vision while driving.

Dr. Parent is now offering the state-of-the-art Custom LASIK at a reduced cost which is comparable to our competitors' Conventional LASIK price. Custom LASIK has shown superior visual outcomes compared with Conventional LASIK particularly in low light level conditions, such as night driving.

The new multifocal IOLs offer the possibility of seeing well at more than one distance, without glasses. In fact, the majority of patients do not need glasses after the procedure. Dr. Parent was one of eleven ophthalmologists in the US (out of 17,500 ophthalmologists) who participated in the national study leading to FDA approval for the first multifocal IOL and the first surgeon in the Midwest to implant a multifocal IOL.

Lasik Exp
The Exam
I was very happy to hear that this surgery gave me a chance to get rid of my glasses but I wanted to know my chances for success. Once I found out that 98% of all lasik patients see 20/20 or better I decided that This would work for me.
Once I scheduled my exam I was a bit nervous about whether I would be a candidate. Once I had made my decision I would have been angry if I did not qualify. After speaking with the doctors they determined I was an excellent candidate for the procedure due to my nearsightedness.
I was nervous on the surgery day and I guess this is normal. I was concerned about the metal device holding my lids back but it did not hurt at all. I really felt nothing but just saw some red and green light masses that were blurry.
My procedure went great and I am happy to say that I was better than 20/20 in both eyes 1 day after surgery. My vision was a bit cloudy from all of the drops after surgery but this was reduced the next morning when I awoke to find a very clear and defined apartment. At my 1 day visit I could see leaves on the trees in a very detailed fashion. Almost like I had never seen it before.
My vision has been excellent after surgery. I have no complaints only a great thanks to the wonderful doctors at Fort Wayne Eye Center, who gave me the vision correction procedure of a lifetime.
