When it comes time for a vision exam or procedure, you want the best for your eyes. This starts with doctors like ours, who are the most elite fellowship trained specialists with extensive experience. In addition, the best eye care requires the latest eye care technology. Luckily for our patients, we prioritize and invest in the most cutting-edge technology every day. Here’s how, and why that matters.

Specialty Technology

Our eye surgeons are always on the lookout for new technology that can make vision procedures more comfortable and more effective. They’re regularly trained to keep up with new solutions, and often the first in the state to work with it as it becomes available. But our doctors aren’t the only ones who understand the value of specialty technology; our executives do, too. Because of this, Horizon regularly invests in top-of-the-line solutions that few, if any, other eye centers have as soon as they’re on the market.

For example, Horizon was the first in Arizona to offer a revolutionary new lens implant, the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) by RxSight. The LAL was the first and only FDA-approved intraocular lens implant (IOL) that can be adjusted after cataract surgery, allowing surgeons to partner with their patients and achieve optimized results for every unique eye. A study of 600 subjects by the FDA found that patients who received the LAL were 200% more likely to achieve 20/20 vision without glasses than patients who received standard monofocal lens implants.

Another example is our LASIK technology. For years, we've used world-class CustomVue iLASIK and Intralase femtosecond laser technology to power our LASIK procedures - with great results. In 2018, we embraced the most advanced technology that offers deeply personalized LASIK to our practice, the iDESIGN® Advanced Studio System. With this tech, we can get measurements that are 25X more precise than ever before. The iDesign is used worldwide and trusted by organizations with the highest safety standards, including NASA and the U.S. Military.

Our Patients Get the Best

The result of this unwavering commitment to next generation technology is that Horizon patients are given access to the most sophisticated technology before it’s available in most other places. By pairing advanced technology with the most advanced doctors in the industry, you can rest assured your eyes are getting the top care possible.
