The most trusted name for Visian ICL lens implants, PRK, LASEK, WaveFront LASIK, IntraLase (all-laser LASIK), and other refractive surgery in Sacramento, California is Dr. Richard Meister. Widely acknowledged as a pioneer in his field, Dr. Meister is pleased to further his reputation by providing his patients with CustomCornea WaveFront and Wavefront Optimized LASIK. Sacramento-area residents can now benefit from laser eye surgery entirely tailored to meet their individual needs. In addition to LASIK, Dr. Meister offers a complete range of refractive surgery options; Visian ICL, Verisyse lens implants, PRK, and LASEK are all available to Sacramento-area patients. The treatment options at Meister Eye & Laser Center are as follows:
LASIK: WaveFront LASIK is our Sacramento practice prime focus. The basic goal of LASIK is to correct vision errors that result from flaws in the shape of the cornea, the part of the eye that processes and focuses most of the light to create an image. When the cornea is misshapen, the image that is projected becomes distorted, resulting in either myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism. In LASIK refractive surgery, Dr. Meister reshapes the cornea using an extremely accurate laser that does not emit any heat and therefore does not pose a threat to surrounding tissue. This is accomplished through a partial flap in the corneal tissue. When the flap is replaced, it naturally re-adheres to the cornea. The entire process requires about four minutes per eye. Discover how we can now customize the procedure to the exact specifications of your eyes.
CustomCornea WaveFront LASIK Technology : At the Eye Center of Dr. Richard Meister, WaveFront LASIK with the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE Excimer Laser System helps Sacramento-area patients achieve a much higher precision of correction by customizing the laser vision procedure to address your specific visual errors. It is important to note that, while LASIK may well improve your vision to 20/20, these higher order aberrations can remain unless specifically treated. Therefore, the custom wavefront LASIK systems are the surest, safest means of achieving the best possible results from your laser vision procedure.

IntraLase, Ziemer, and All-Laser LASIK: All-laser LASIK is performed using a femtosecond laser. Both the IntraLase and Ziemer Da Vincilaser can be used to make a LASIK flap. The flap is then folded back while the excimer laser (WaveLight, VISX, or LADARVision is used to correct ones vision. Afterward, the flap is placed back, like standard LASIK. Some patients prefer the precision and results of this more expensive all-laser technique.
Surface Laser Treatments: If you are not an ideal candidate for LASIK particularly if your corneas are too thin to undergo the surgery – you may be able to benefit from another type of refractive surgery such as ASA, PRK, Epi-K, or LASEK. Surface treatment requires a slower recovery, but does not eliminate the need to make a flap. Sacramento-area residents have been coming to Dr. Meister for PRK since 1994, when he became the first physician in the area to perform this procedure out of the country.
The Visian ICL and Verisyse Lens: The latest and most promising method of correcting refractive errors without use of the excimer laser involves the placement of a phakic intraocular lens (or phakic IOL) in the eye; for this procedure Dr. Meister uses the advanced Visian ICL or Verisyse lens. Sacramento-area residents who are unable to have traditional forms of laser refractive surgery due to severe refractive errors may be able to see clearly without glasses by surgery to implant a Visian ICL or Verisyse lens. Contact Dr. Richard Meister office to find out if implantation of a Verisyse lens at our Sacramento-area office can help you see more clearly.
Presbyopia Surgery: Presbyopia can now be treated with refractive surgery at our Sacramento office. You can learn about the types of presbyopia treatment our office provides during a complimentary consult.
ReSTOR and ReZoom Multifocal and Crystalens Intraocular Lens Implants: ReSTOR and ReZoom IOLs are designed to help cataract surgery or other patients by decreasing or eliminating dependence on glasses and increasing the ability to see at varying distances and at near to read. Crystalens IOLs are designed to bend and change shape like the natural lens to allow for one to change focus from distance to near. This may eliminate or reduce one's need for glasses.
