Time for an upgrade! Our LENSAR laser got the Streamline™ III upgrade, which provides our refractive cataract surgeons the tools to plan astigmatism treatment more intuitively and more confidently than earlier generations of software. The Eye Institute of West Florida is one of only six practices in the country and the only practice in Florida offering patients this advanced technology, designed to provide the best visual outcomes possible. We strive to offer the latest, most advanced treatment options for our patients and are proud to continue improving the technology used in our operating room. LENSAR will join Dr. Robert Weinstock in the operating room next week, observing him using #StreamlineIII first hand.
