Tennessee’s first vision center to offer 3D laser cataract surgery

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

Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center was the first center to introduce a new generation of cataract surgery technology to the state: laser-assisted cataract surgery.

Mr. Charlie Daniels, Tennessee’s first 3D laser-assisted cataract surgery patient, and Dr. Ming Wang, director of Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center

Traditional cataract surgery is performed with a blade, which requires tiny and delicate incisions to be made by hand. The laser cataract system utilizes an advanced, ultra-accurate femtosecond laser to improve the precision of cataract surgery. The surgeon uses the laser to customize the surgery to the exact specifications of each individual patient. A computerized laser imaging system guides the laser beam. Real-time, high-resolution 3D images of the eye are displayed on a monitor, which allows the surgeon to perform the surgery and laser astigmatism correction with precision that far surpasses that of a traditional manual blade.

Modern improvements in lens technology can also help to reduce the need for glasses after surgery, helping patients return to work or recreational activities with a reduced need for glasses. For years, traditional cataract surgery has been performed with standard monofocal lenses, which provide focus at only one distance. When these lenses are used, patients nearly always still need to wear glasses for reading, seeing long distances or both — as these lenses do not provide any focus range. Cataract surgery can now be completed with modern, customized lenses that can correct vision more completely than ever before.

In recent years, an array of lenses has become available to correct vision more completely. For many patients who qualify, this can mean a correction of both distance and reading vision. These multifocal, accommodating, toric, or extended-depth-of focus lenses can correct vision in ways that standard monofocal lenses cannot. After surgery, patients can then live life that is minimally dependent on glasses. This can allow many to enjoy life without needing to worry about putting in contact lenses or searching for their glasses. Certain patients with very high prescriptions or other eye health conditions may only quality for partial correction of vision, for instance only distance vision.

Dr. Ming Wang, a Harvard & MIT graduate (M.D., magna cum laude), is the CEO of Aier-USA and director of Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center. He is one of the few laser eye surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics. Dr. Wang has published nine textbooks, holds several U.S. patents and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. 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. Wang has founded a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that provides sight restoration surgeries free of charge for indigent patients who otherwise would never be able to afford them.
