The Omaha Eye and Laser Institute was founded in 1985, and became The Omaha Eye & Laser Institute in 2001. OELI founders Sao J. “John” Liu MD and Sao C. “James” Liu recognized that a new era of laser innovation in the field of eye care had arrived and worked to devote Omaha Eye & Laser Institute’s full efforts to bringing the most advanced laser technology in the field of eye care to the state of Nebraska. In 2003, Omaha Eye & Laser Institute was the first to provide blade-free iLASIK in Nebraska, and was the first to provide blade-free laser cataract surgery in the state. Our goal at Omaha Eye & Laser Institute is to provide our patients with tomorrow’s surgical and laser technology today! We know that with the best LASIK technology and unparalleled surgeon experience, our patients will have the best possible results and care.
The Omaha Eye & Laser Institute offers the ultimate laser vision correction procedure known as iLASIK. iLASIK is a revolutionary procedure that combines the advanced iDesign-guided laser vision correction technology of the Abbott Medical Optics Customvue laser with the safety and precision of the Intralase iFS laser. The resulting iLASIK is unmatched in both precision and safety.
iLASIK is an all-laser procedure, involving zero blades. Because iLASIK is truly iDesign-guided, it can provide sharper vision by treating your higher-order aberrations. These are visual errors that glasses, contacts, and other forms of wavefront “optimized” lasers cannot treat. We are proud to be the first and only vision center in Nebraska to offer the iFS and iDesign. Because the iFS is nearly three times faster than the previous 60Khz Intralase lasers, our patients experience quicker treatment times and much less discomfort. The iFS laser can create flaps with much smoother stromal beds in a record-low ten seconds, with the entire iLASIK procedure taking only ten minutes.
We believe that LASIK is for everyone who needs it, and to that end we offer multiple options to help offset the cost of LASIK in Omaha. Ask us today about our LASIK financing options through Wells Fargo and CareCredit, and visit our Special Financing page for more information.
Drs. Sao J. “John” Liu, Sao C. “James” Liu and Mark Young are Nebraska’s most accomplished all-laser LASIK team. Each surgeon at Omaha Eye & Laser Institute is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, with decades of experience performing LASIK procedures; our OELI surgeons have helped countless patients in Nebraska achieve crisp, clear vision without the aid of glasses or contacts.
In 2011, OELI introduced blade-free cataract surgery and today is the most experienced, proficient, blade-free laser cataract surgery center in the state. OELI surgeons are also among the most knowledgeable toric and multifocal intraocular lens implants surgeons in the Midwest. These advanced lenses provide much sharper vision after cataract surgery without the use of glasses or contacts.learn more about our doctors
