BLADELESS FLAP CREATION

The first surgical step in the LASIK process is the creation of the corneal flap. We use the most advanced, fully-customizable fifth-generation iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser for this process. Superior to the fourth-generation IntraLase FS Laser, it produces the same outstanding vision results and safety with the added bonus of:

  • Increased speed: Allows creation of the corneal flap in 16 seconds or less
  • Lower energy output: Reduces tissue inflammation
  • Added comfort: Includes an ergonomic design with a high-res digital video microscope and touch screen

LASER VISION CORRECTION

The second surgical step in the LASIK process is the actual laser vision correction. This is where our surgeons have the ability to choose the right technology for you, based on the type and severity of refractive error you have. Both technologies are based on earlier Wavefront assessments, which take precise 3-D measurements of how your eye processes images to guide the laser in reshaping the cornea. Our technologies are completely customizable to provide the most precise, quick and safe methods for superior results.

  • ALLEGRETTO WAVE Eye-Q 400 Excimer Laser: Preserves as much of the cornea as possible to minimize vision problems in low light, such as halos or glare and allows our surgeons to treat more patients than ever before
