Johnson & Johnson Vision Clinical Trial for MONOVISION LASIK – Laser Vision Correction

Are you nearsighted and have lost the ability to see up close?? If so, you may be eligible for a LASIK study being offered at THE EYE CENTER. The Eye Center is one of only fourteen centers in the United States recruiting subjects to participate in this research study. Candidates must be:

  • Healthy and at least 40 years old
  • Nearsighted and have lost the ability to see up close
  • Able to return for at least 12-months of follow-up

COVID-19 Update (Office Hours)

OFFICE HOURS: Updated July 17, 2020

The Eye Center has remained open for our patients, but for extra safety, we had temporarily implemented reduced office hours. Starting Monday, July 20th all offices will resume regular hours, with the exception of Saturdays.

We are here for you! Please contact us if any questions. Thank you.


Since 1989 The Eye Center has been on the forefront of vision correction procedures. Dr. Boutros and The Eye Center are two names that have come to define a standard of excellence in vision correction, performing thousands of iLASIK procedures.

Dr. Boutros has spent the last 30 years refining the vision correction process. When you have iLASIK at The Eye Center, your treatment is based on specific measurements that are taken during your extensive, dilated, pre-operative examination. iLASIK introduces a new level of accuracy to the vision correction procedure.

Many patients spend a great deal of energy and time learning about the technology in various items, such as computers, appliances, televisions, etc. But when it comes to their eyes, they don’t take the time. Here we provide detailed information on why iLASIK (All laser LASIK with Custom Vue) is, in our opinion, the best possible vision correction treatment available today. It is the only procedure approved for Naval aviators and NASA astronauts. This is your first step to learn about iLASIK and why everything else is LASIK.

iLASIK combines the safety of Intralase with the precision of Advanced CustomVue and the experience of Dr. Boutros. iLASIK employs all-laser LASIK technology with the Advanced CustomVue™ technology. Your first step is to learn BASIC LASIK and then learn why iLASIK is different. Read more
