e are two important elements of the critical first step in evaluating your visual pathway.  The only way to truely assess your ocular health and determine if your eye is healthy enough to support laser vision correction is to visualize the retina (inner surface of the eye) through a dilated pupil.  During this portion of the exam your prescription is re-measured to minimize any chance of over-correction.  This allows a surgeon to accurately gauge levels of astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness and presbyopia.   

Fourier Based Wavefront Measurement

During the past few years, new and more refined techniques in laser vision correction have increased the safety and precision of the procedure. Wavefront technology allows surgeons to measure a person's refractive errror or prescription with increased accuracy which can be especially important for low light vision.  To date, most experts would agree the most precise measurement of prescription is acquired with a Fourier based wavefront algorithm.  All of Dr. Newman's patients are evaluated with this technology.  This added detail about a person's individual refractive error is used to create a laser ablation profile which is unique to that particular eye which Dr. Newman uses to reshape the corneal curvature.  True wavefront measurements are 25 times more precise than the measurements typically used to prescribe glasses or contacts.This technology can be especially helpful in patients who have problems with night vision.

True Wavefront Technology

True wavefront technology is not to be confused with "wavefront optimized" technology which does not directly measure a person's individual wavefront error.  It instead relies on a treatment algorithm which blends the peripheral untreated cornea with the treated central cornea, and applies the same treatment to all patients.  The simple difference between this technology and true wavefront measurement based technology is that the latter accurately measures an individual's higher order aberrations and creates the MOST detailed ablation profile possible for that particular eye.  In general, the more detail you have about a person's prescription, the more accurate the correction will be leading to an increased probability of achieving the best vision possible.  This can be especially helpful when trying to maximize night vision.

True Wavefront Technology

Lastly, and most importantly, we tailor the results to your individual needs.  Our experience in identifying and targeting your visual potential with your visual requirements are designed to get you the most visual freedom with your customized lasik procedure.  We realize vision is very personal and provide a one on one environment with the surgeon.  With a 20 year career dedicated exclusively to laser vision correction and the personal experience of over 80,000 procedures, rest assured Dr. Newman has seen your individual prescription many times in the past.   Couple this with vision technology that measures your vision 25 times more precisely than the exams you've had in the past for your glasses or contacts and you've got the foundation for the best results possible.  In fact,  FDA clinical trials of the Visx Customview laser system showed 98% of patients could see 20/20 or better and 100% could see 20/40 one year after their procedure, and four times as many participants reported improvement in their night vision compaired to glasses or contacts.

- This review is past due. I finally had Lasik done & it was well worth every penny! I waited a couple of years until my vision was stable. I was getting tired of wearing glasses & contacts.
- The staff was very friendly & prompt. They were very helpful & always available to answer any questions.
- I was nervous to get Lasik to be honest. But Dr. Newman made me smile during the surgery. He's a funny & gifted surgeon.
- For the price, you can't beat it!

Thank you for restoring my vision & giving my life back!
That's one major item I can check off my bucket list.

So I got Lazer surgery done on both my eyes February 2022. My left eye can see clear with no problems but I noticed immediately that my right eye has a blurry vision. They told me that in a couple weeks it should go away. Every visit, I told them that I still have a blurry vision in my right eye & that it didn't get any better & that i began to get headaches due to the blurriness . My last visit was February 2023 and still nothing had changed still is blurry. The lady who checked my eyes responded with "we are only responsible for the healing of your eyes" so still to this day I still have a blurry right eye

Absolutely amazing experience every time I have visited.
Doctors and staff are all so positive and make you feel comfortable and safe.
Free consultation, quick procedure, 20/20 vision in a few hours.
My only regret is not getting it done sooner!

So many people take vision for granted and put off getting Lasik because they think it hurts, is expensive, or the recovery is too long. None of these are true and the staff at Newman Lasik makes sure you are comfortable, happy and well taken care of through the procedure and your healing process.
The office is clean, the staff is pleasant and very well educated. The cost is very affordable and the results virtually instant.
I always knew I wanted Lasik and the minute I was able to do it, I did. Waking up and being able to see without contacts or glasses is a serious game changer for me and I am so thankful for the team at Newman Lasik.
best money I have ever spent, hands down!

Dr. Leonard Newman AND his staff are fantastic! From all of the pre-op, the surgery, and through the final post-op, everything was first rate. And my vision is better than expected (1.5 years later). I did a full consultation with 2 other doctors and I am glad I chose Dr. Newman. Highly recommended!

If you're thinking about LASIK, I absolutely recommend it. And if you're in the Sacramento area, look no further, this is where you want to be. I went to a few different locations to get a consultation and ultimately went with NEWMAN LASIK not just because it was the most affordable, but because their staff were the most friendly, knowledgable, and non-bias. I felt I received the most information on all the surgery type options available to me, and I also felt they had my best interests in mind. Some of the other locations were pretty convincing with new technology options, but they omitted the longer healing times with those newer bladeless machines, including higher risk. My consultation went smoothly, the surgery was quick and painless, and my recovery was just as expected. I was provided some anxiety medication to help keep the nerves down before the surgery. The staff communicated to me throughout the entire procedure with what to expect, including what I would feel, see, and smell. The entire procedure took about 7 minutes total (honestly maybe faster). I was able to drive home without my glasses! I went home and rested my eyes for about 2 hours and was already seeing improvements in my vision. The following day I could see perfectly. They had schedules a post-op appt for the next day, the next week, the next month, then 6months, etc... I still have a 9month and 1yr post op, but no issues at this point. I initially complained about some haloing in the evening, slight dryness, blurred near sightedness, vision going in and out, and one eye seeing worse than the other, and they assured me that all of these were normal and would correct overtime. Sure enough all those went away around the 2-3 month mark. They also notified me that women may experience changes in their vision in 10+ years with hormone changes, pregnancy, and just general aging. And even still I would consider this 1000000% worth it. I would do it again in a heartbeat. They also accept FSAs which covered nearly most of the cost for me so I didn't feel like I spent thousands of dollars in one sitting.

I had the best experience at Newman Lasik. Every single staff member provided exceptional service throughout the process. The procedure was smooth and Dr. Newman kept me very calm. I would highly recommend this center to anyone considering lasik.
