All-Laser LASIK in West Palm Beach
In order to provide his LASIK Palm Beach patients with the most advanced treatments possible, Dr. Katzen has incorporated several state-of-the-art laser technologies into his practice. He is especially proud to offer blade-free LASIK with IntraLase femtosecond laser, a procedure that has greatly increased the safety and precision of laser eye surgery. During all-laser LASIK treatment, Dr. Katzen uses a specialized laser (IntraLase) to create a small flap in the cornea. This is different from traditional LASIK whereby the flap is created with an oscillating bladed instrument referred to as microkeratome. The laser-created flap is smoother and more precise, which promotes better vision correction outcomes and reduces the risk of LASIK side effects, such as glare and halos.

In addition to offering sophisticated LASIK procedures, Dr. Katzen also performs premium IOLs cataract surgery in West Palm Beach / Boca Raton.

In order to meet the unique needs of all of his cataracts patients, Dr. Katzen offers a range of premium IOLs, including ReSTOR, ReZoom and Crystalens in Palm Beach / Boca Raton.
