Washington, DC Surgeons Utilize State-of-the-Art LASIK Technology

Using Wavefront Optimized(TM) Analysis, Eye Doctors of Washington Offer Patients a Whole New LASIK.

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Dr. Thomas Clinch and Dr. Paul Kang, both prominent Washington DC LASIK surgeons, work to remain up-to-date on technology in their field. At Eye Doctors of Washington, they are now using Wavefront Optimized™ analysis to offer patients a greater range of LASIK procedures. This new technology allows Dr. Clinch and Dr. Kang to determine candidacy for Custom LASIK, an enhanced alternative to standard LASIK surgery.

Custom LASIK procedures, made possible by Wavefront Optimized™ analysis, allow patients to experience results that exceed the benefits of standard LASIK. After Custom LASIK, patients will experience:

  • Improved visual contrast
  • Increased spatial detail of images
  • Sharper, clearer vision

Wavefront Optimized™ analysis utilizes technology that can more accurately assess the eye's refractive errors. WaveScan™, the instrument that performs Wavefront Optimized™ analysis, detects refractive abnormalities found within: tear film, anterior and posterior cornea, lens, vitreous and retina. Dr. Clinch says, "Because we are customizing the treatment to the individual needs of every patient, the outcomes of surgery are extremely predictable and tend to be outstanding."

The Wavefront™ sensor measures a patient's unique refraction and is 25 times more sensitive than the standard refraction used for traditional LASIK consultations. By assessing every ray of light that enters the eye, the WaveScan™ determines what alterations in the visual system will produce the clearest image for each patient.

Since the Wavefront™ technology precisely measures the complete refractive error of the entire eye, the system allows for a more precise diagnosis. Using this technology, Drs. Clinch and Kang can offer a more tailored treatment plan to Washington DC LASIK surgery patients. "The advanced technology allows us to treat patients at a much higher level than standard LASIK or glasses and contact lenses. These can result in better outcomes for our patients," Dr. Kang says.

About Thomas Clinch, MD
Dr. Thomas Clinch is a graduate of Cornell University and earned his medical degree at Jefferson Medical College. Since that time, he has performed over 20,000 LASIK procedures. Dr. Clinch was recently honored with an Achievement Award by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and has been named in the National Registry of Who's Who, as well as Best Doctors and Top Ophthalmologists in America. He has also served in the U.S. Navy as the head of the Department of Ophthalmology, Naval Hospital, Camp Lejeune and as an Associate Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Utah.

About Paul Kang, MD
Dr. Paul Kang is a graduate of Harvard University and earned his medical degree at Indiana University, where he also served as a delegate to the American Medical Association. He currently works as a scientific reviewer for the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and his clinical research has been recognized by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Dr. Kang also serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the Department of Ophthalmology at Georgetown University and the Washington Hospital Center.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
