count and allows us to precisely tailor the best contoured incision for that particular eye.

Q: Is there anything special about this particular laser that Helm Vision Group has acquired?

Dr. Helm: This laser represents Swiss technology at its finest! Other lasers can be very finicky. This laser is very solidly built and is highly accurate. The most important difference however, is that unlike other laser platforms that are available for cataract surgery, the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Z8 uses the lowest pulse energy to do the job. That means that with less energy needed to perform, it causes less inflammati­on and makes the surgery a more gentle experience.

Q: Is there anything else that this laser can do?

Dr. Helm: Yes, this laser is incredibly versatile. We can also use it to do corneal transplant surgery. The laser can make complex incisions that result in a stronger bond between a donor cornea and the host cornea. Basically, anything type of corneal surgery that required a blade in the past can now be done more accurately and precisely with this laser. We are very excited to bring this technology to the residents of the Santa Clarita Valley and surroundin­g areas. really enjoy life at Mayflower Gardens!

10 year anniversar­y

“It’s basically a bread and butter shop”

Jeff explains. “From Bentleys to Bugs… boats, Harleys, side by sides…we do it all. Bring it in and we’ll get it done.” Alright…We’re just going to come right out and say it; Jeff Meece is an audio N.E.R.D. (Never Enough Rockford Doom). You know the guy we all cheated off of in science class, we were thinking about lunch and he was thinking about how to get the most out of his car audio system.

Yeah, everyone wishes they were one of those types of nerds. Well, to date there have been 540 different people that can say they have been to space, but less than half that amount can call themselves a Mobile Electronic­s Certified Profession­al, MECP, ‘Master Installer’ and Jeff is one of those lucky few. After 15 years in the install bay, Jeff opened his own shop, Meece Car Audio, with a focus on two business philosophi­es; attention to detail and giving back to the community.

Jeff prides himself on his technical knowledge and quality of work. That’s maybe why he still does the majority of installs himself! Some come to his shop because of his high ranking in Mobile Electronic­s Magazine, or maybe it’s that he is a representa­tive for the Mobile Electronic Retailers Associatio­n, MERA.

Possibly they even want him to autograph their copy of the MECP study guide with his photo on the cover. Or it just might be the ground trembling from one of the shop’s parking lot shows featuring one of his latest installs loaded with Rockford gear.

You see, people trust a man with these kinds of accolades, industry recognitio­n and knowledge, and he puts his trust in Rockford Fosgate. “Rockford is my preference not just because of the performanc­e of their products, but for the amazing family-like service I receive and our shared technical passion for quality sound,” explains Meece. “RF is there for me, whether it’s an in-store display, a technical question for one of their engineers, or just coming out to support one of my parking lot parties with the Sound Lab…I can always trust they’ll be there for me.”
