More about Dr. Farrell C Tyson II
Dr. Farrell C. 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. Tysons contributions continue to assist ophthalmologists worldwide in their ability to offer patients new advancements in vision technology. Tyson is one of the first in the world to utilize Intraoperative Wavefront Technology during cataract surgery, a technology that will revolutionize cataract surgery. Using sophisticated instruments, Tyson is able to capture real-time refractive measurements of the patients eye during surgery. This advanced approach will allow ophthalmologists to tailor intraoperative lenses immediately, reducing or even eliminating the need for postoperative surgery and/or postoperative eyeglasses. 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. A clinical investigator for the FDA, Tyson has demonstrated and lectured on his research and experiences at such prestigious venues as the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Turkish Glaucoma Congress in Izmir, the Russian National Ophthalmology Congress in Moscow, the Pan African American Congress of Ophthalmology in Dubai and the European Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in London and Lisbon, the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons in Barcelona, Spain and most recently a meeting of the First International Symposium of Dhahran Eye Specialist Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Tysons Cape Coral Eye Center is a training and observation facility for the introduction of new cataract lenses.
