Center that performed the world’s first 3D LASIK procedure calls Nashville home

Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center is the first in the world to perform 3D image-guided high-definition LASIK.

The 3D image-guided, microsurgical technology represents an innovative improvement of LASIK. In a standard LASIK procedure, the surgeon looks through a traditional microscope with the naked eye. Since the eyeball is very small, there is limited resolution and accuracy in the surgical procedure.

In contrast, in the 3D image-guided, bladeless, all-laser LASIK procedure, the surgeon wears a pair of 3D glasses and uses a digital high-definition microsurgical system that 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, improving the quality of LASIK surgery. The 3D LASIK technology also has a novel feature to improve the precision of astigmatism treatment by overlapping the digital surgical field with preoperative corneal maps.

Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center is proud to be the first in the world to perform the 3D image-guided high-definition LASIK using the TruVision digital microsurgical system. We have been a leader in introducing laser vision technologies to the state over the last 25 years.

Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics), is the CEO of Aier-USA and Director of Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center. He has received many honors including the Honor Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association of Chinese American Physicians, and Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year Award for this lifetime dedication to help blind orphan children worldwide. Dr. Joshua Frenkel, MD, MPH received training in microsurgical glaucoma surgeries from the #1 training program in the country. He graduated with an MD and MPH and completed his ophthalmology residency from the prestigious Tulane University. Wang Vision doctors (Drs. Sarah Connolly, Joshua Frenkel, Marianne Johnson, Nathan Rock and Ming Wang) have performed over 55,000 procedures (including on over 4,000 doctors). They have published nine textbooks, hold several U.S. patents and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. Wang Vision is currently the only center in the state that performs 3D SMILE & 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Implantable Contact Lens (21+), 3D Forever Young Lens (45+) and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery.
