Next-Generation LASIK Is Here: iDesign 2.0
Welcome to iDesign LASIK 2.0 at Focal Point Vision. We are proud to be the first practice in San Antonio to introduce this ‘Next-Generation’ LASIK technology.
In our continuing effort to SET THE STANDARD in vision correction in South Texas, eye surgeons Kenneth Maverick, MD and James Lehmann, MD are proud to offer patients the ONLY topography-integrated, wavefront-guided LASIK procedure approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.
What does that mean for you? It now means Focal Point Vision now has the potential to improve your vision beyond the capabilities of either glasses or contacts. In fact, if you’re an ideal candidate, iDesign 2.0 can take your vision BEYOND 2020. And it all starts with a single, ‘Three-Second Scan’ of the entire human optical system. Yes, just 3 seconds.
This is truly one of most significant LASIK breakthroughs ophthalmologists have seen in the past decade. And our new iDESIGN Refractive Studio is truly revolutionizing the manner in which we measure and treat NEARsightedness, FARsightedness and Astigmatism today and in the future.
Each iDesign 2.0 treatment plan begins with a wavefront analysis to measure how light travels inside your eye, detailing thousands of imperfections in a patient’s vision. The corneal topography scans the outside surface of the eye, measuring and analyzing tiny variations in curvature and elevation. The combination of the two measurements delivers a custom LASIK procedure tailored for each eye that was unattainable with previous LASIK platforms.
The iDesign Refractive Studio is also the only available custom LASIK platform indicated for monovision LASIK in presbyopic myopic patients. Monovision is a procedure designed for patients over 40 years old who are experiencing blurry near vision due to aging of their eyes. The first sign of presbyopia is the need for patients to wear reading glasses to see near objects clearly. In the U.S., an estimated 130 million people could potentially benefit from a monovision LASIK procedure, which includes improved distance and near vision.
According to testing by Johnson & Johnson Vision, the majority of patients see 20/16 or better six months after laser vision correction based on clinical studies. To schedule a complimentary iDesign 2.0 LASIK consultation, just fill our form on this page or call our office at 210-981-6444.
"My LASIK went very well yesterday. It was a rough evening with some discomfort but that was normal. This morning I had my first follow up and I already have 20/20 vision without glasses or contacts. My vision is still a little hazy/foggy but that should clear up in a few days. Besides being a little freaked out during the procedure I am very happy I went through with it. All the doctors and nurses talked me through everything as it was happening and were very educational throughout my experience. Anyone looking to have LASIK done, I highly recommend Focal Point Vision"- C.B. / Google / Nov 29, 2021
"I just finished my last appointment for the light assisted laser surgery to remove my cataracts and replace my lenses. The results were outstanding with my vision back to 20/20. I would highly recommend Dr. Maverick and his staff to anyone who previously had lasik or PRK surgery and who now have cataracts. Thanks to all for such outstanding care in every phase of the process!"- R.T. / Google / Nov 06, 2021

"Dr. Lehmann, Dr. Conner and Dr. Daughtry have all made a positive impact on my life with their help on my ICL surgery. I had an eye infection nine years ago that created scar tissue over my right eye’s cornea. When I first sought out LASIK doctors told me my eye was too fragile with its scar tissue; I was pretty disappointed that there may not be a way for me to get out of my glasses. I have been a dancer all my life and the change in my eye’s health changed the way I was able to dance and perform. It wasn’t until this past year that a doctor in Austin recommended Focal Point Vision for its surgeons, Dr. Lehmann and Dr. Maverick, and the ICL procedure. I went in for a few consultations before I was green-lit by Dr. Daughtry to meet with Dr. Lehmann, who performed my surgery. I am impressed by how well the entire team handled my scheduling and worked together to make sure I was informed and comfortable for the operation. I was filled with great relief when Dr. Lehmann told me I was a candidate for ICL after so many no’s on LASIK (understandably after I learned more about the two operations). While ICL could not ‘erase’ the scar tissue on my cornea, the operation has already brought a great improvement to my day to day life. The day of my surgery, Dr. Lehmann’s surgical techs, Holly, Gina, and Ashlea took great care of me before the surgery and I want to make sure to give them a shout out and thank you! They were all professional and inspiring in how well they treated me. The operation itself was short and easy. A few hours post-operation I met with Dr. Amy Conner. She blew me out of the water with her professionalism, empathy, and knowledge; Within minutes under her care I joked I was going to find a way to put her into my will for how great of a doctor she is. I will settle for naming my first born child after her (Kidding). A huge thank you to Dr. Amy Conner, I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an informed doctor who leads with her knowledge and emotional intelligence. She took care of me on an intense day with swiftness and expertise. The evening of my operation Dr. Lehmann called me to check in. He knew the details of my follow up with Dr. Amy Conner and was there in case I needed anything. After the call I looked to my mom and said, “Holy cow. I bet he’s been up since 3 or 4am and just finished his day and still called me. Wow.” It was definitely above and beyond. I don’t expect my surgeon to give me a personal call - they are busy giving people new eyes! Still I felt like my operation was in the best hands it could have been. The day following my surgery I woke up feeling incredible. My mom could not believe how well I could see. I was even able to drive both myself and my mom home and have felt comfortable ever since. To anyone contemplating ICL, I cannot recommend this team enough. I am so grateful I can see now without my glasses. I have been through some tough times these last nine years with my vision. I have also had some pretty depressing eye doctor visits that left me feeling hopeless and some that misdiagnosed me in other clinics. I am so fortunate to have been able to visit Focal Point Vision. Thank you, FPV, for giving me my dancing freedom back without the stress of contacts or glasses. It means the world to me."- A.G. / Google / Jun 10, 2022
WHAT IS LASIK?
Our team at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX has extensive experience with many of the most effective refractive surgery techniques, including bladeless LASIK. LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most requested refractive treatment in the eye health industry. Millions of patients all over the world have undergone this procedure and are incredibly happy with their improved vision. LASIK surgery can reduce or completely correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism by changing the curvature of the cornea. The best aspects of LASIK are that it is remarkably quick and nearly painless, and it offers lasting outcomes.
HOW IS LASIK DONE?
To be a good candidate for LASIK, you must be at least 18 years old and have sufficient corneal thickness. The majority of individuals won't experience any discomfort during their procedure, and it typically lasts around ten minutes. Before we begin, your eyes will be fully numbed with eye drops to maximize your comfort. We will then use our innovative laser device to create an extremely thin corneal flap and gently fold the flap back to alter the curvature of the underlying corneal tissue. As soon as this is done, we will move the corneal flap to its correct location, and the site will heal on its own. Almost all individuals who receive LASIK will experience clear vision within one day.
Is LASIK eye surgery painful?
No, most patients don't experience discomfort during a LASIK procedure. Before we begin, your eyes will be completely numbed with anesthetic drops. If a patient feels anything at all, only a slight sense of pressure is typically reported.
How long does it take to get LASIK?
A LASIK procedure at Focal Point Vision is very quick and easy. An average procedure usually only takes about 15 minutes per eye to complete.
Is LASIK surgery safe?
For the majority of patients, LASIK is generally considered safe with a low risk of complications. LASIK is one of the safest elective procedures available, with a high success rate and patient satisfaction rate of up to 98%.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASIK?
Incredible developments in ocular technology are allowing a growing number of individuals to take advantage of laser refractive surgery. If you were told in the past that you weren't a good candidate for LASIK, set up a consultation at Focal Point Vision to learn if that's changed. Patients who aren't suitable for LASIK could be candidates for a different vision correction option, such as PRK. We are pleased to give our San Antonio, TX patients their clearest eyesight.
