Dr. Boothe is originally from Plano, TX, which is one of the reasons why Dr. Boothe opened his practice there - the Boothe Laser Center. William Boothe graduated from Rice University at first and then served as an ophthalmology resident at Texas Tech University. Later Dr. Boothe took an internship at the Presbyterian Hospital and after that he worked as a refractive surgeon at the Jules Stein Eye Institute. He became the director of the Plano and the San Angelo emergency centers in Texas a few years later.
Dr. William A. Boothe chose the area of ophthalmology because he believes that he can help people correct their vision. In the end of the 1980’s he established Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center in Plano, TX, and since then has offered his clients only the most effective methods. In the early 1990’s Dr. Boothe became the first ophthalmologist surgeon who started performing the LASIK laser correction procedure. In 1999 he was named VISX (one of the laser technologies/companies) Surgeon of the Year. Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center won the annual Consumers' Choice Award for LASIK in the Dallas area five times.
Until now, laser vision correction treatment was based on diagnostic technology similar to that used for the prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. The new CustomVue™ System at LaserVue Eye Center takes laser vision correction to an entirely new, personalized level by combining exclusive personalized diagnostic technology and the Excimer laser into one system.
LASIK and IntraLASIK laser procedures are used to correct vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. The difference between the procedures is that LASIK technology involves using microkeratome to create a thin flap on the eye and IntraLASIK uses a computer-controlled laser. The doctor folds the flap to enable remodeling of the remaining tissue beneath with an excimer laser. Then the flap is repositioned and the cornea is left to heal without stitches.
For LASIK and IntraLASIk procedures, Dr. Boothe uses equipment such as the Intralase iFS Laser, Alcon’s LADARVision 4000, Allegretto’s Wavelight Eye-Q and the VISX STAR S4 laser system. Current Lasik technologies allow Dr. Boothe to test the entire optical system of a patient with the help of the newest Wavefront Mapping technologies and to detect higher-order aberrations prior to surgery, a condition that cannot be corrected, even with LASIK procedure. Boothe Eye Care’s office also performs procedures such as Automated Lamellar Keratotomy, Radial Keratotomy and Excimer Laser Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK).
