Cape Coral, FL, April 2010 â€“ Cape Coral Ophthalmologist Farrell C. Tyson, M.D. is named among 250 surgeons identified as leading innovators in the field of premium IOL implant surgery. The PS250 are designated such by the publisher and editors of Premier Surgeon magazine, published by Slack, a highly respected publisher of professional magazines such as Ocular Surgery News and the Journal of Refractive Surgery.
Tyson, who is medical director of the Cape Coral Eye Center, is one of the first in the world to utilize intraoperative Wavefront technology during cataract surgery. Using the worldâ€™s first intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, Tyson is able to capture real-time refractive measurements of the patientâ€™s eye during surgery. This advanced approach will allow ophthalmologists to tailor intraoperative lenses (IOLs) immediately, reducing or even eliminating the need for postoperative surgery and/or postoperative eyeglasses.
Also named one of Americaâ€™s Top Ophthalmologists by the Consumer Research Council, Dr. Tyson practices among an elite group of eye physicians leading the research and development of new treatments for cataracts and eye diseases. A Johns Hopkins graduate with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, Dr. Tysonâ€™s contributions continue to assist ophthalmologists worldwide in their ability to offer patients new advancements in vision technology.
Tyson continues to advance ophthalmic treatments in the area of refractive surgery, performing custom wavefront LASIK, clear lens extraction, implanting contact lenses (ICL) and providing astigmatism reduction.
