Iris registration is an added step to lasik correction that gives doctors a more precise look at the defects in the eye, giving patients their best chance for 20/20 vision. We talked to a Tyler opthamologist who performed the first iris registration procedure in Texas after it was FDA approved. "When you lay down and do a lasik, all eyes intort just slightly. They turn ever so slightly just a few degrees. So we want to make sure that treatment is laid down in the right position accounting for that intortion," says Dr. Jon Shreiber, M.D. with Eye Care Associates in Tyler.
Dr. Shreiber says iris registration does not cost extra it's just an additional step to make vision correction better.
