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. Call us for more info (757)228-7373 or go to our website. Stay Awesome!"

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
