Vision Correction Technology
Colorado’s Best Vision Correction
No two eyes are exactly the same. No singular vision correction technology can provide the very best outcomes for every unique set of eyes.
The Eye Center of Northern Colorado is the only vision correction provider in the region to offer multiple vision correction platforms on-site. This gives our doctors the flexibility to select the right technology to correct your vision imperfections with greater accuracy and safety than ever before. The entire vision correction experience is customized from start to finish. We offer today’s most advanced, FDA-approved lasers for your procedure:
- VisuMax® Femtosecond Laser for SMILE® ReLEx® for corneal reshaping
- iFS® Advanced Femtosecond Laser for the creation of the flap
- WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser for corneal reshaping
- CONTOURA® Topography-Guided LASIK

VisuMax® Femtosecond Laser for SMILE® ReLEx®
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is a vision correction procedure for nearsightedness that is performed as a single-step using one laser: the VisuMax® femtosecond laser from ZEISS. This is a high precision procedure with proven outcomes and predictability.
The VisuMax laser is used to create a very small incision (often less than 4mm) on the cornea from which a tiny bit of tissue (lenticule) is removed. This allows your doctor to continue the process of reshaping your cornea to the exact specifications of your unique degree of nearsightedness. The incision heals naturally. This technology may reduce the risk of dry eye after the procedure.
iFS® Advanced Femtosecond Laser
In any LASIK procedure it is necessary to create a corneal flap. This flap gives your doctor access to the underlying corneal tissue so it can be reshaped with an excimer laser according to your unique refractive error. Our iFS femtosecond laser is a platform built on IntraLase® technology’s legacy of surgical precision. Our doctors utilize the iFS laser to separate corneal tissue for flap creation by generating energy that produces tiny bubbles at a precise depth. The flap is gently folded back during the LASIK procedure and replaced when the procedure is finished.
Over the manual (hand-held blade) method of flap creation, this process is safer, creates better vision results and creates a more stable and precise flap.
The WaveLight® EX500 excimer laser optimizes corneal reshaping with precision for your unique refractive error and corneal irregularities. The system’s high-speed laser and eye tracker provide efficient, safe and reliable treatment with a low rate of complications. PerfectPulse® eye tracking technology is incorporated to compensate for any involuntary eye movements which halts the laser process entirely until the eye is in the correct position. Treatment is based on digital 3D information gathered about your own unique eye characteristics gathered during earlier testing.

Contoura™ Topography-Guided LASIK
We’ve taken personalized, customized LASIK to a whole new level with the introduction of CONTOURA® Vision. This amazing topography-guided LASIK technology allows our doctors to analyze up to 22,000 data points on each eye, creating an extremely precise computerized map of each eye’s elevation points. It’s like a unique fingerprint of your eye, allowing your doctor to know exactly what areas of your cornea need to be reshaped to achieve the sharpest vision possible. By altering just those areas that are causing the refractive error, light entering your eyes will be better equipped to land directly on your retina for superior vision.
