Mid Tennessee Edition — World’s First 3D LASIK Performed The new 3D image-guided high-definition microsurgical technology improves the quality of LASIK surgery

Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center, Nashville, Tennessee

Wang Vision

Dr. Ming Wang of Wang Vision Cataract & LASIK Center, Nashville, TN, became the first surgeon in the world to perform a 3D LASIK procedure. The first such ground-breaking surgery took place at Wang Vision Cataract & LASIK Center on May 27, 2011 and utilized an off-label use of the TrueVision® 3D high-definition, real-time, stereoscopic microsurgical technology.

3D LASIK

The world’s first 3D LASIK patient was Mr. Farah Jai-Aden, a 28-year-old truck and taxi driver from Atlanta, GA. At his first post-operative visit, he could already see better than he ever had before, even with glasses or contact lenses! Mr. Jai-Aden was very pleased with his new 3D vision!

“We were very excited to be the first in the world to perform the 3D image-guided high-definition LASIK procedure,” said Dr. Wang, who is a clinical associate professor of ophthalmology for the University of Tennessee and the director of Wang Vision Cataract & LASIK Center, Nashville, TN.

LASIK is a surgical procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Since the advent of LASIK 20 years ago, nearly 20 million LASIK procedures have been performed worldwide. However, despite the popularity of the procedure, the technology itself that has been used for LASIK has remained largely unchanged for many years.

The new 3D image-guided high-definition microsurgical technology represents an innovative improvement of LASIK. Dr. Wang explained, “In a standard LASIK procedure, the surgeon looks through a traditional microscope with the naked eye. What you see is what you get. There is no image processing or signal enhancement. Therefore, since the eyeball is very small, there is limited resolution and accuracy in the surgical procedure. In contrast, for the new 3D image-guided bladeless all-laser LASIK procedure, the surgeon wears a pair of 3D glasses, and uses a high-definition microsurgical system, which provides a stereoscopic and signal-enhanced view of the entire surgical field. It allows the surgeon to achieve more precision and accuracy with the laser focusing of the eye, and thus improves the quality of LASIK surgery.”
