Fortified LASIK in Los Angeles

Laser Eye Surgery for Astigmatism

  • Would you like to see naturally without contact lenses and glasses?
  • Are you frustrated with your lenses?
  • Have you been thinking about LASIK for years, but were afraid?
  • Are you active in sports and wish you didn’t have to wear lenses?

Fortified LASIK® is a combination of Dr. Brian’s advanced LASIK + Dr. Brian’s accelerated Holcomb C3-R® (a cornea strengthening procedure that he invented in 2003). This reinforces the cornea to help guard against unwanted side effects that might otherwise occur without accelerated Holcomb C3-R®.

It is well known that LASIK can weaken cornea with the creation of the flap combined with tissue removal to reshape your cornea. In some people this can cause a complication known as Ectasia or Keratoconus resulting in severe vision loss from the cornea bulging out like a hernia. Dr. Brian is known around the world for treating Ectasia and Keratoconus with procedures that he invented.

That is the reason he developed Fortified LASIK®. It uses his proprietary crosslinking process (Holcomb C3-R®) to strengthen the cornea at the very end of the LASIK procedure. The crosslinking that Dr. Brian performs at the end of your LASIK procedure minimizes the risk of developing Ectasia or Keratoconus is extremely low. This is the reason strengthening the cornea with crosslinking is very important for your vision.

Patients enjoy the peace of mind of experiencing Dr. Brian’s Fortified LASIK® with the added safety that cannot be found anywhere else in the United States.

Fortified LASIK® is only available at Dr. Brian’s Beverly Hills office due its proprietary nature. This is the reason many people routinely fly in from out-of-state for Fortified LASIK® with Dr. Brian. It’s just an easy 3-day visit to his Beverly Hills office.

Imagine if your LASIK procedure came with an insurance policy…Fortified LASIK® in a sense gives your what you’ve been waiting for – reinforcement for your cornea after the laser treatment that helps “lock-in” all the benefits of the procedure to your vision.

Best of all, it only takes one extra minute per eye for Fortified LASIK®. It’s receiving two procedures for the price of one!

Side Note About “Community” Laser Centers:

Dr. Brian has the longest experience of anyone in the world with the laser he uses for Fortified LASIK® – the laser is like “an extension of his hands”.

Dr. Brian uses his wholly owned FDA approved laser in his own facility for Fortified LASIK®. He does not need to go to an outside, “communal” surgery center for Fortified LASIK® where other doctors go in-and-out like a rotisserie – all using the same equipment which causes greater wear-and-tear on the laser and equipment.

Dr. Brian is the only one who exclusively uses his laser and equipment. In fact, Fortified LASIK® is only available at Dr. Brian’s Beverly Hills office. This is the reason many people routinely fly in from out-of-state and from around the world for Fortified LASIK® with Dr. Brian.
