At PAN PACIFIC LASER VISION CENTER, LLC. (SINCE 1997) and Surgeon: Stephen Gee, MD, Board Certified Ophthalmologist with over 13,000 procedures performed in Hawaii, we offer The iLASIKTM procedure comprises the Advanced CustomVueTM excimer laser vision correction procedure using VISXTM Technology, Lasik corneal flap creation with the IntraLaseTM FS (femtosecond) laser, and WaveScanTM mapping and guidance at the most affordable prices. While average cost per eye is $2,500.00, at Pan Pacific it caps at $1,950.00 per eye, with special pricing for active duty military, DOD, and military dependants.

When it comes to achieving 20/20 vision, no two eyes are alike—and, as such neither should be your vision correction, the iLASIKTM procedure is the very first vision correction procedure designed to be 100 percent custom-fit from beginning to end. The iLASIKTM procedure addresses the uniqueness of your two eyes - from the individual curvature of your corneas, to the microscopic nuances of your eye’s anatomy—designed to deliver the exact correction you need to achieve best vision.

Just like the tailoring of a fine suit or couture fashion, the iLASIKTM procedure is 100 percent tailor-made for the patient, their vision and the unique characteristics of their eyes. Three-dimensional mapping, precise measurement and the use of beginning-to-end, state-of-the-art technologies differentiate the iLASIKTM procedure from all others. The iLASIKTM procedure also provides better visual outcomes and superior safety through reduced flap complications using the IntralaseTM FS (femtosecond) 100% blade free laser.

The iLASIKTM procedure has been a decade in the making, with each new advancement furthering the next, we’ve reached the final frontier. Quite honestly, there is nothing better on the horizon. The iLASIKTM procedure eliminates confusion for patients seeking the very best in laser vision correction surgery. Patients now can find all of the most advanced laser vision correction technologies available today under the banner of one premium procedure.

More than a decade since FDA approval, LASIK remains not only the most common, but also the most clinically studied elective surgical procedure to date. It was this very same clinical research that revealed the combination of technologies—femtosecond and wavefront guided lasers, iris registration and 3-D mapping—provided superior safety and better visual outcomes for patients than all previous LASIK techniques through reduced flap complications.

Clinical trials have shown more patients achieve 20/20 or better vision when these two lasers are used, as in the iLASIKTM procedure, instead of the single-laser platform of previous LASIK techniques. Clinical studies using one of the components in the iLASIKTM procedure show that one year after iLASIKTM treatment:

* *More than 95 percent of all clinical study participants could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses.

* Four times as many mild-to-moderately nearsighted participants were very satisfied with their night vision after treatment compared to their night vision before treatment with glasses or contacts.

* 98 percent of mild-to-moderately nearsighted patients could see 20/20 or better one year after treatment; 100 percent of mild-to-moderately nearsighted patients and more than 95 percent of patients with mixed astigmatism could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses.
