  • Corneal-Cross-Linking

    Corneal Cross-Linking for Patients with Keratoconus (KC)

    WK Eye Institute is the first in the region to offer corneal cross-linking for patients with keratoconus.Corneal cross-linking using Avedra’s Photrexa products and KXL System is a medical procedure that combines the use of ultra-violet (UV) light and riboflavin (vitamin B2) eye drops. The procedure works by creating new corneal collagen cross-links, which results in a shortening and thickening of collagen fibrils which leads to the stiffening of the cornea.

  • Laser Vitreolysis

    Laser Vitreolysis (Laser Floater Removal)

    Laser vitreolysis, also known as laser floater removal, uses an ophthalmic laser to vaporize vitreous strands and opacities. It does not have the risks of infection, bleeding, or retinal detachment that come with vitrectomy. During laser vitreolysis, a YAG laser emits short, small bursts of energy. This energy converts the floaters into a gas which is then resorbed into the eye.

    Telescopic Surgery for Macular Degeneration

    The Vision Care Implantable Miniature Telescope (by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz) offers new hope to patients with the most advanced form of age related macular degeneration (AMD). Christopher Shelby, MD, ophthalmologist with WK Eye Institute, was the first surgeon in our region to offer this new technology. The FDA-approved implant is used as part of the CentraSight™ treatment program for age-related macular degeneration in people who are 65 and older and who have a cataract in at least one eye.

  • BlephEx

    BlephEx To Treat Blepharitis

    This amazing technology is used to treat Blepharitis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the eyelids which is caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria that live along the eyelid margin.

    The BlephEx tool works by spinning a medical grade micro-sponge along the eyelid surface, eliminating scruff, bacterial debris, and the biofilm that builds up along the lid and base of the eyelashes, removing bacteria and destroying the environment it thrives in.

  • LenSx

    LenSx & Premium Intraocular Lenses

    Technology has improved the safety and outcomes of cataract surgery. In traditional cataract surgery, several small incisions are made manually with a blade and a manual technique is used to break up the cataract. Our surgeons, operating at the WK Eye Surgery Center, were the first in Louisiana and in the Ark-La-Tex to offer the newest LenSx technology with laser- assisted cataract surgery.

    An image-guided femtosecond laser allows our surgeons to make incisions with efficiency and precision without the use of a blade. The laser also assists in breaking up the cataract so that removal of this cloudy lens requires less ultrasound energy, which is easier on the eye. This new laser technology also allows for better management of our patient’s corneal astigmatism. This technique is available only with the premium lens implants, which ensures the best visual outcome for our patients.

  • LenSx

    Cataract Surgery

    Cataract surgery is removal of the human lens and implantation of an artificial lens implant. The purpose of cataract surgery is simply to improve vision. Topical anesthesia in the form of drops is used to numb the eye. Incisions are made on the surface of the eye with a small blade called a keratome or with the LenSx femtosecond laser.
