Dr. Rampona's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rampona "I am Princeton and Baylor Medical School graduate, founder of SUPRALASE Laser Vision Correction. After managing LASIK flap complications for many years, I knew there must be a better way to correct vision. SUPRALASE® is a TRUE no-flap/no incision, all-laser eye surgery used to correct nearsightedness or astigmatism. It's also suitable for people with dry eyes and thin corneas. SUPRALASE® eliminates the risks of corneal flap complications and diminishes discomfort. Supralase is a great option for individuals who are apprehensive about having anything approaching their eyes. It is the only procedure I perform on my own children and family."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rampona "After years of managing LASIK complications, I knew there has to be a better way to correct vision. SUPRALASE is the safe and very patient friendly laser vision correction, that does not carry all of the long term complications associated with flap creation. I can sleep at night not worrying about my patients. It is the only procedure I perform on my own children and family. We have the U.S. patent for SUPRALASE.

My husband had Dr. Rampona complete his eye surgery in 2004. He has nothing but great things to say about him. I'm now considering having my eyes corrected and will be looking into Dr. Rampona!

I had my Supralase in 2014 and my vision has been great! Before I wore contact lenses every day. I saw good, but had some discomfort with them. The worse was wearing goggles to the pool-i hated that. I wanted lasik, but cutting flap in my eye was scary. The Supralase procedure was very quick, just...more
