Gordon & Weiss Vision Institute Leads the Way With Newest Laser Vision Correction Platform New System Offers Fastest LASIK Treatments in San Diego

San Diego, CA – Gordon Binder & Weiss Vision Institute announced today that it has installed the newest and most advanced FDA-approved LASIK system in the United States. The ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ Eye-Q delivers the fastest laser vision correction treatment available today. Gordon Binder & Weiss Vision Institute is the first clinic in southern California to acquire this advanced new platform.

The faster speed is important for several reasons. Shorter treatment times have been shown to reduce healing time while decreasing the risk of post-operative infections due to the minimization of influences from the external environment. It increases outcome predictability which results in better night vision and less sensitivity to glare. In addition, patient comfort significantly increases as the procedure is notably shortened.

“Our clinic has always been devoted to providing our patients with the safest and most advanced technology available,” said Dr. Jack L. Weiss. “With the new laser platform, we can now perform laser treatments much faster than before. This allows us to achieve the best outcomes possible while ensuring the highest level of comfort and care for our patients.”

Gordon Binder & Weiss Vision Institute uses multiple lasers, and is one of only a few practices in the U.S. using the combination of the Intralase blade free LASIK with the Allegretto Wave™ Eye-Q, Allegretto Wave™ & VISX S4™ lasers. Unlike the traditional LASIK using a hand-held mechanical blade, the combined use of these lasers are clinically proven to improve safety and deliver more results to 20/20 vision or better. Also, the Allegretto Wave™ Eye-Q, Allegretto Wave™ and VISX S4™ lasers have the broadest range of custom treatments and provide excellent vision day and night.

“Superior vision following the LASIK procedure is dependant not only on the surgeon’s experience, but also on the technology used to deliver the treatment,” Dr. Weiss added. “In addition to our 70 years of combined experience performing refractive surgery in San Diego, we are excited to bring the most advanced LASIK platform to Gordon Binder & Weiss Vision Institute. We believe our patients will benefit from the highest level of safety and precision possible while achieving spectacular visual outcomes.”

Dr. Michael Gordon, Dr. Perry S. Binder, and Dr. Jack L. Weiss are corneal specialists who perform refractive, corneal and cataract surgery at the Gordon Binder & Weiss Vision Institute. They are among the most experienced and well-trained surgeons in the world and together they have performed thousands of successful surgical and laser vision correction procedures.
