The optometric Cataract and Refractive Surgery Management residency program at the Wang Vision Cataract & LASIK Center offers focused training in surgical co-management of cataract, cornea, and refractive surgery, including LenSx (laser cataract surgery), premium IOLs, LASIK, PRK, PTK, INTACS for keratoconus, implantable contact lenses, and penetrating keratoplasty. We will also add corneal cross-linking in early 2012. The clinic specializes in technologically advanced cataract and refractive surgical correction, anterior segment reconstructive surgery, and correction of post-refractive surgery complications. In addition to surgery, the doctors see patients for contact lenses, routine medical eye care and diagnosis and management of ocular disease. Our facility is also involved in the FDA clinical trial for SSP (scleral spacing procedure).
The Wang Vision Institute is a state-of-the-art facility located in Nashville, Tennessee. The facility has 8 examination lanes (2 have digital anterior segment cameras) and 3 specialty rooms. The surgical suite currently holds a VISX Star 4 Excimer laser, the Intralase laser, and a conductive keratoplasty system. It is also equipped with various other pieces of special testing equipment--including a Stratus OCT, Pentacam tomographer, IOL Master, A-scan, B-scan, ultrasound pachymeters, topographers used in research (the Humphrey Atlas, the Orbscan, AstraMax 3-D system, Pentacam Scheimpflug topography), a VisanteTM OCT Anterior Segment Imaging/Biometry, an Ocular Response Analyzer, a Humphrey visual field analyzer, and both the VISX Wavescan and Tracey Ray Tracing systems.
