Total care- all visits before, during and after surgery are done by Mark Sczepanski, M.D.
LASIK eye surgery is the most common laser vision correction worldwide. It has allowed millions of patients freedom or reduced dependence on glasses or contacts. North Dakota Eye Clinic is the first practice in North Dakota to use the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer and LenSx® Femtosecond Laser.
Mark Sczepanski, M.D. brings 19 years of experience and state-of-the-art technology to our region. Dr. Sczepanski will evaluate, treat and follow you throughout your process. Although some patients do wish to return to their primary eye doctor (especially if they are from out of town), most patients appreciate the highly skilled and extensively trained Dr. Sczepanski following them throughout. LASIK pricing is very affordable and financing is available with low monthly payments.
We proudly use the WaveLight Refractive Suite® which consists of the FS200 Femtosecond Laser and the EX500 Excimer Laser. The combined lasers, connected by a swiveling patient bed and advanced internal data sharing network provide increased speed, precision and patient comfort during laser correction surgery. The WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser is faster than any other laser system on the market, and integrates advanced data transferring technology that allows the lasers to communicate patient-specific data to the surgeon in real-time during surgery. This laser treatment is unique to each of your eyes. No two are ever the same. Your treatment is as unique as you are.
After administering topical anesthetic drops the eyelids are held open with a speculum, eliminating the possibility of blinking. The FS200 Femtosecond Laser creates a flap about ¼ the thickness of the cornea. The flap is lifted, and the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser eye tracker is activated. This locks on to the pupil and will track movement of the eye during the laser to help ensure a well-centered laser pattern. The flap is repositioned and allowed to stay in place for a few minutes. The speculum is removed and the other eye is done the same way.
Both eyes can be treated in just a few minutes. The procedure is painless and done right at the North Dakota Eye Clinic in our laser suite.
Call today for your thorough evaluation with Dr. Sczepanski. He will carefully examine your visual system and discuss which procedures, if any are right for you. A full and thorough discussion of all the risks of the procedure will be discussed. You will be given all the information you need to make a decision you are comfortable with.
