Dr. Tanchel has been traveling around the country, visiting many laser centers to teach other surgeons how to utilize the recently approved OATz and CATz treatments on the Nidek excimer laser – the most advanced laser eye surgery available today. Dr. Tanchel is one of a handful of physicians who provide this education throughout the country.
OATz stands for “optimized ashperic treatment zone”, which provides patients with the most advanced quality of vision after LASIK treatment. CATz is “customized aspheric treatment zone”; this procedure allows guidance of the laser based on the shape of the cornea, or front surface of the eye – this is the most advanced treatment available in the USA today; it is also known as Topography Guided LASIK.
Liberty Laser Eye Center is the only center in the mid-Atlantic region where this most advanced laser eye surgery procedure is available. As one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the USA, Dr. Tanchel has been chosen to help others learn these advanced techniques. Along with a femtosecond laser for the first part of the treatment, OATz and CATz provide the safest, most accurate all-laser-LASIK treatments available.
