tree welcomed dr as roger thank you very much for having me how it’s our pleasure we’ve got a lot to talk about we have a
patient coming up in a few minutes as well so let me just
begin right off the bat if i may by pop asking you if you can please tell us
about this latest breakthrough in vision correction precision ortho k king one of the latest corrections in on the creek to people that are near center
of the other prescriptions it’s called precision worth okay what’s very interesting exciting in that
it’s a alternative to lasik surgery but also told her to two people that are
wearing uncomfortable contact lenses the very simple procedure where we actually reshape the front
party i called a corneal and how it that take place will what
happens is we we’d first will have the patient coming to the office to
determine if he or she is going to be candidate for the procedure or k and we put a series of contact lenses
when the eyes for testing purposes and we use our latest technology
instrumentation the office to determine certain measurements and these
measurements and how the patient where’s this particular
lens drawer in the examination will help determine if their candidate if their candidate then we prescribe
these ortho he lenses to them and they were the lenses overnight to remove the lenses when they get up in
the morning and they have very very good licenses are free from their regular
contact lenses all day long if they were wearing glasses are free
from classes all day long that’s very interesting see that right there’s a argosy separates it from the traditional models a that utilize up to this point
regarding contact lenses in classes because here you’re saying you’re free of the
contacts in the classes during the day and you only wear them at night as
opposed to putting the contacts or glasses away at
night and wearing them during the day that we’ve all been doing up to this point that’s correct on the most important thing even assume
you have to wear them while they’re asleep right before they go to bed they put the
consequence in their eyes and right when they get up they take
them off and therefore they’re free for plane in sports they don’t have to worry about the
conflict is coming off their eyes they’re free that very sharp isn’t and the most exciting part is it is an alternative to lasik surgery lasik surgery has it’s complications
where we don’t have these complications precision worth okay and that’s the most
exciting part about this procedure yes indeed it makes a revolutionary absolute and your certainly the first in
this entire region here that we’ve ever had a discussed this at that’s one of the other reasons we’re
looking forward to having you on dot grisman now from what you just described unlike
lasik this is not invasive that’s correct this is a f_d_a_-approved procedure nineteen based on surgical non-invasive it’s a simple procedure in fact we will have results just one night worrying lenses approx p
seventy eight ninety percent of the patients vision will be corrected if there were in the lenses for one
night without any complication whatsoever verses lasik that in many cases patients have glee
reissues a cake dry eyes uh… which we don’t have these
complications in precision worth ok so his revolutionary it is the most exciting thing at as far
as i’m concerned our practice is the most exciting technique i’ve seen
in many many years well we certainly you cover cutting edge technologies and breakthroughs within
the medical field over the years with all the interviews that we’ve done in
other medical specialties so certainly uh… i am very happy to hear
about this and have you explain this to the stock transmitted what problems would you say the specific
lee addresses it addresses all individuals that are
nearsighted individuals that are for senate people that have astigmatism and now we’re able to patients at
whereby fobel glasses or readers over their contact lenses so
position with a k_ can address all those different types of prescriptions and he didn’t even addresses people of
hand unsuccessful lasik surgery so if patients had unsuccessfully six surgery we can now do precision worth okayed to correct the problems in those unsuccessful lasik surgeries what kind of results can be expected
princess very very part of his also goes that
earlier on the majority of patients will have
twenty twenty one day if there weren’t one day here
for the lenses overnight that is available i have on the fact one
of the patients will be interviewing his visual cutie is twenty ten but each case is different and that’s
why it’s unmos on portents to have a quality devaluation by our
practice without any meat when a doctor aspin’s
patience welcome michael it’s our pleasure to have you gone and always appreciated when patients
take a few moments and come down and share their experiences with us and on
that note i want to begin by asking you if you can please tell us what vision
problems we experiencing prior to coming to
backdraft and how to get back to life sure thing uh…
actually didn’t really have a knee problems and i just got a had moved to the area and had a new you
know needed a new i dr i’ve been wearing glasses for probably
twenty five years and just decided it was time to see if i had on the other
options and uh… we went through in several different uh… generations
of contacts and things and and ended up with what what i have today and what
exactly is called ortho care apology and basically it’s uh… a process whereby uh… many several
tests that we went through now fittings for contacts and it’s really contact
lenses that i wear in the evening overnight and um… my understanding is that
actually reshapes her cornea and you take out the ones is in the morning and
you can see uh… it’s it’s actually pretty cool
um… something i’ve never heard of before i came here and i think a lot of
people having heard of it so on it just it frees you up and i
don’t have to work off anymore and his contact such as where the midnight and and fall on the morning i can see not
certainly sounds like you’re very pleased with the results yes yes i’m
extremely placed there and i start working just said michael it
sounds like you’re inside a speaker confidence is back yeah i mean it’s it’s uh… you know i
also therefore spore hammacher or and uh… it had to help me with that as
well so just having the glasses with sort of a on and conrad’s for speaker and and sports
so uh… it was nice assumes that great
alternative to uh… to regular contact but also to the conference well we’re very happy to hear that in on
that note about thank you michael coming down and joining us to be a guest
on enemy surfing projects are placed right now back to the doctor aston i must say michael seemed very very
pleased with the results well michael is one of my most exciting
patients because when he originally came to me eyesight was around twenty thirty twenty forty which means he could technique drive a
car here to hide visual demand he’s a on
this board is crawling and he needed to have twenty fifteen
eyesight better than it was the richest twenty
twenty and he did not win take the risks of
having a lasik surgery he was too concerned of the glaring issues from
lasik surgery so we chatted about that when i consult
with him about a new procedure qua precision worth of care ecology and he said five signing up with you and it’s the
folded it can do and i did the evaluation one hand and he
was a x intended into the procedure he right now has twenty fifteen a cutie
this is sharper vision than those individuals who have and the unique thing about him is he set the stage where he will be calm the term is called presby opi which
means he will start you know whereby folklore reading glasses but because he had precision worth okay we will be able to change the molding of the contact lens to take care of any reading problems
down the road whereas lasik if you have lasik surgery once it’s done you really can’t repeat
the procedure to creek people’s vision for a close relationship three patients
in most of them or were you reading glades is now we’re might patients at high precision
worth okay do not need reading glasses because we
can make those changes as the eighty s the beautiful thing
about precision with okay we can make those
changes said allows you through the precision orthop k and this procedure to have the
flexibility to make necessary adjustments as one ages to life michael
excellent that’s true with the flexibility we can make those
changes as a we make those changes and that’s the beautiful part about the
precision worth ok are there any age restrictions doctor aston great question the beautiful thing about precision
towards okay there are no age limitations money into space is approx
the seven years of age by all this is a proxy sixty two years old and n_e_h_ can’t have a procedure done and so it’s ages the limitation and as
dole in the almost no limitation prescription either so it’s it’s just a
wonderful procedure because of the lasik you have to be least eighteen years of
age that’s very good for us to know so this
is not at all age-specific it’s more i problems has said that is
correct and again when you say on problem that’s where a meticulous devaluation imprecision
ortho k valuation must be done by someone who’s been trained properly
put myself to see if they pick a cabinet desperation race for the street that is
correct it believe me earlier you touched on it that’s f_d_a_ approved yours rakh lete is f_d_a_ approval is
approved for prostate ten years ago on by the f_d_a_ to on do all the prescriptions so it’s very safe very safe and very effective and no complications and what i love
about this procedure is that it’s totally non-invasive absolutely non-surgical and non-invasive nado earlier doctor asking it touched on
it very briefly as far as who might be a potential candidate for the precision
arthur k but i wanted to ask if you can please
elaborate on that for a sort of truly can understand the viewers watching to
understand if this is something that could benefit
them great rocco the ideal candidate said earlier our basic all different prescriptions
most patients have had you’re seeing is a statement ism on the other weren’t reading glasses
they can all have this procedure done but the real true ideal candidates of
the patients are very motivated the negative example percent play sports
that states baseball football any sport across they need to be free from many devices like a pair of glasses are confident
that there were in contact lenses dorfner sport if something gets nikolai tickets are rubbing their islands from
fallout he can mean a difference will win in the
game would burst of losing the game so with alum precision worth okay they are free from their medical devices
whether it be glare sizzle kandavelan too so there there is one can’t type of
canada persons involved in sports another
individual as a person works has an occupation their works in the future camel pulls a
pharmacist baby or lab tech if there were in contact lenses fields will get into the convert lens
before can’t hand which will be contaminated and calls it the written on it will hit another ideal candidate they’ll
have to wear any lenses were in the daytime and a third candidate is a young person
under eighteen years of age who would like to have wasted but
they’re too young to legally they cannot have the procedure and that charles playing sports or
doesn’t want anyone to be free from their contact lenses of the glasses that the other ideal candidate and the final can and it is a person
who’s been wearing contact lenses for many years and the lenses have been very
uncomfortable what i have wasted but they’re fearful of laser
complications or they’ve been cold they cannot have lasik because of some medical issue all of those stations has been told they
can have lasik therefore we can have precision ortho carrot alfred yeah so those are the ideal candidate
for the procedure well that’s certainly a good for all of
us now doctor aspen that week only got a few moments left i have to ask you before i let you go you’re practicing yourself certainly
have developed quite an excellent reputation throughout this region as being one of the top if not the top i care specialist i wanted to ask your
doctor aston what sets you’re practicing you apart from the others excitement
iran to what sets us apart is when the number one my partner are working very
hard for this week the president for over thirty years we have a question of what we do we’re told the
committee providing the best i care poss for every patient in fact many in minibar patients think
where the doctors doctors choice because doctors actually send their own family
members to us and a m sells the doctors come for a
practice for contact lenses or perhaps precision worth okay or other visual movies are practiced any other part of the equation is we have the best team here we hire people her practice that are up passion about what they do and we also make sure we have the most
modern instrumentation the practice this where we get meticulous information
we need to take the measurements to make sure our patients qualify even for precision worth of character
algae or for just contact lenses with any other medical like your needs well this is certainly very very
informative an insightful for all of us doctor asked
her that we were talking about precision ortho k it’s certainly a
revolutionary breakthrough and i care it’s a great alternative for lasik uh…
certainly regular classes and contact lenses with the way this method in this procedure works and you certainly described all
that for us here today not to mention having michael on a patient that
certainly helped us understand this better as well and on that note i’d like
to thank you for telling us to be a guest on indian leader says very very
