Amin Ashrafzadeh, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained corneal surgeon who specializes in LASIK and other forms of refractive surgery. Dr. Ash (as he is referred to by most) performs laser vision correction surgeries at the Laser Suite in Northern California Laser Center in the Black Glass Medical Building on McHenry Avenue, Modesto. Dr. Ash also practices with the Turlock Eye Physicians Medical Group, where he offers the latest eye care therapies using the most advanced treatment technologies. The surgical procedures are performed at the state-of-the-art surgical suites of Northern California Surgery Center, conveniently located on Geer Road across from CSUS. Patients undergoing treatment are assured of receiving the finest care in the safest, most comfortable of settings designed to produce a warm, relaxing atmosphere.
Dr. Ash is a highly experienced surgeon who received his specialty training in refractive surgery at the prestigious Tufts University in Boston. For LASIK surgery, Dr. Ash uses the VISX CustomVue wavefront-guided laser system. This advanced technology laser system provides a highly accurate measurement of the corneal curvature and then creates an individualized laser beam to correct each patient’s vision. To create the corneal flap, Dr. Ash offers the “all-laser LASIK” or “blade-free LASIK” system known as IntraLase. This laser system uses a laser beam instead of a bladed instrument (microkeratome) to create the corneal flap. IntraLase has advanced the safety level of LASIK to an entirely new level. The results of an intense study of LASIK in Top Gun naval pilots clearly show superiority of IntraLase over the traditional microkeratome. At Northern California Laser Center, Dr. Ash offers the CustomVue LASIK with IntraLase just as performed at the naval LASIK surgery centers for the Top Gun pilots.
