A key component in quality vision care is technology.

When you decide to undergo LASIK or other types of vision correction, you want to know that the equipment being used on your eyes is first class. Dr. David I. Malitz believes that much of a surgeon?s responsibility to his patients applying advanced technology in a safe and effective manner. To stay on the cutting edge of LASIK laser vision correction, Dr. Malitz constantly evaluates new technologies that can offer the best treatment options for patients.

CustomVue Technology – STAR S4 Laser

The VISX STAR platform’s heritage of dependability and performance is well known. The STAR S4 from VISX has taken that reputation to an even higher level. Our excimer laser system represents an advanced laser technology platform. The Visx platform is chosen by more surgeons in the USA than any other laser. By integrating data collected by the WaveScan WaveFront System, the STAR S4 utilizes these exclusive VISX technologies to deliver precision custom ablations:

  • Variable Spot Scanning (VSS): Variable beam sizes from as small as 0.65 mm up to 6.5 mm scanned over the treatment area, conserving tissue and optimizing treatment times
  • Variable Repetition Rate (VRR): VRR delivers treatment at varying repetition rates, optimizing treatment time
  • ActiveTrak 3-D Active Eye Tracking: Captures all 3 dimensions of intra-operative eye movements?no dilation required
  • ActiveTrak Automatic Centering: Locates, and then automatically sets the treatment center to the center of the pupil.

Beyond Glasses and Contacts-

  • Glasses and contacts are limited in their ability to correct unique imperfections in each individual’s vision. In fact, thousands of individuals have the same prescription. With the CustomVue procedure, no two ?prescriptions? are identical.
  • This precise level of measurement and treatment can enable individuals to achieve the full potential of their vision.

Clinical Study Results-

VISX’s FDA clinical study results were remarkable. Among other things:

  • At one year after the VISX CustomVue procedure
    • 100% of the clinical study participants could pass a driving test without glasses or contacts
    • 98% of the clinical study participants could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contacts
    • 70% of the clinical study participants could see 20/16 or better without glasses or contacts.
  • Four times as many clinical study participants were very satisfied with their night vision after the VISX CustomVue procedure compared to their night vision before with glasses or contacts.


Crystalens offers significant advantages over other kinds of lens implants and corrective lenses. Standard (single vision) lens implants don’t have the ability to provide a full range of vision. Most people who have single vision lens implants MUST wear glasses for middle and near vision. Crystalens has the unique ability to focus on objects at varying distances using the eye?s natural muscle. This means the Crystalens can provide sharper vision, without corrective lenses, throughout a full range of vision from near to far and everything in between.

Crystalens? FDA one-year clinical study results indicate:

  • 92% of the people enrolled in the study (implanted bilaterally) could see 20/25 or better at distance
  • 96% could see 20/20 at arm?s length
  • 73% could see 20/25 at near
  • 98% of these people could pass their drivers test
  • 100% could see their computer or put on their makeup
  • 98% could read a magazine, all without glasses or contact lenses.

Also, your ability to see at approximately arm’s length (middle vision) will be greatly enhanced with the Crystalens. In addition, the quality of vision compared to wearing bifocals and/or trifocals is significantly improved. You’ll have a full range of vision by simply looking at something. Crystalens, mimicking the natural focusing ability of your eye, will automatically focus your eye at near, arm?s length, or distance.

What is LASIK?
The Excimer laser emits a cool beam of light, that is precisely programmed by the surgeon with the patient data, to reshape the curvature of the cornea and correcting the diopters of myopia, astigmatism, or hyperopia.
Because the laser beam treats the inner portions of the cornea, recovery of the patient is very fast
How do I know if I’m a candidate?
The ideal candidate is over 18 years of age with healthy eyes and stable vision. LASIK treatment can correct a wide range of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
Can I have LASIK operation if I had a previous corneal transplant or radial keratotomy?
With a skilled surgeon, the answer is yes. Most reports of LASIK after the corneal transplantation have been excellent. With previous RK,

las vegas lasik

treatment can give good results. However the procedure may be complicated if the flap separates at the previous radial incisions.

Should I wait for refractive surgery to improve?
Refractive surgery is highly technologically driven. Just like in the computer industry, there are constant advancements. The important question is whether the technological advances translate into proportionate increases in patient satisfaction. Because the level of patient satisfaction with modern refractive surgery is already so high, there probably will not be dramatic advances in the satisfaction for most patients. In many cases, time spent waiting for the technological improvements also means less time to potentially benefit from the refractive surgery.
How important is the choice of a doctor?
Your choice of doctor is a crucial decision. Not all doctors will meet with you more than 5 minutes before the surgery and be willing to answer ALL of your questions. This time is necessary to communicate the visual goals of each patient and to establish trust and comfort. Since LASIK operation is a corneal procedure, a cornea specialist is a smart choice.
Can both eyes be done at the same time?
In virtually all cases, both eyes are done at the same time. But you may elect to have one eye done at a time.
What if I blink?
A small retaining device will be used to keep your lids open and prevent blinking. There is no way you will be able to blink and hurt yourself or your visual outcome.
How long will the

las vegas lasik

procedure take?

las vegas lasik operation takes about 4 to 5 minutes for an eye. The actual laser ablation time is in terms of seconds.
How soon after surgery will I see well?
Each patient is different. The eye drop medications cause some blurring, also there is extra water within the cornea after the

las vegas lasik

treatment, but most patients notice a dramatic improvement even as they leave the office.

Will my eyes look different after

las vegas lasik


No. Your eyes will look exactly the same.
Is there a guarantee that I will not have to wear glasses or contact lenses again?
There are no guarantees in any part of medicine, but as a rule, people under 7 diopters of myopia who have LASIK will have a 99% chance of success and will have less than a 0.5% probability for enhancement.
My question is not answered here. What should I do?
Go to FREE LASIK Evaluation , and your question will be answered promptly and free of charge.
I am interested in having LASIK. What is the next step?
Call our office in Las Vegas at +(99), and make an appointment with Dr. David Malitz to have a pre-surgical exam and discover if you are indeed a candidate. For complimentary information you can call at the same phone number.
