The Most Advanced Technology

Dr. Maida offers a variety of laser vision correction procedures to help patients see what matters most. Patients who are currently using contacts or glasses can eliminate or significantly reduce their dependence on these visual aids by undergoing refractive eye surgery.

Among the treatments offered are:


Dr. Maida was the first practitioner in Florida to use the excimer laser . Today, he employs the Eye-Q Excimer laser which is one of the fastest and most precise lasers available. During LASIK eye surgery, Dr. Maida uses the laser to reshape the cornea’s surface. This better focuses images on the retina, therefore reducing a patient’s need for eyeglasses or contacts.


IntraLase® is the first blade-free, all-laser treatment used for correcting vision. It is one of the most exciting breakthroughs in laser eye surgery history. It offers unprecedented safety and precision. Rather than using a blade to create the flap, this method uses a computer-guided laser. This state-of-the-art technology increases precision and reduces the risks involved with LASIK surgery. It is a uniquely safe, precise, and predictable method of LASIK eye surgery for patients who visit Dr. Maida’s Jacksonville practice.

Photo Refractive Keratectomy

Photo refractive keratectomy, better known as PRK, is a vision correction surgery in which the cornea is reshaped after its top layer of cells have been removed. Dr. Maida was one of the first to perform this laser procedure in the U.S. after its approval by FDA. PRK differs from LASIK in that it does not require an incision in the cornea.


Posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PCIOL) are lenses placed within the eye to improve vision after the natural lens has been removed. This is a popular treatment option for patients who have undergone cataract surgery. Using intraocular lenses, the surgeon can treat patients who deal with nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Implantable Contact Lenses

Unlike traditional contacts, implantable contact lenses are a maintenance-free way to improve your vision. These implants are placed inside the eye and can be used as an alternative to LASIK surgery. These lenses are recommended for patients who are not candidates for LASIK or PRK. This safe, effective procedure restores vision within two days.
