All-Laser LASIK Surgery
The All-Laser LASIK surgery experience combines two exciting technological advances that offer patients a real possibility to achieve better than 20/20 outcome. These technological advances are: the Ziemer FEMTO LDV™ Femtosecond Laser for creating the flap and the WaveLight Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q excimer laser system for a personalized laser vision correction procedure. At AbellEyes we focus on surgery of the cornea, which does include LASIK and other forms of refractive surgery. The cornea is a transparent dom-shped tissue that is located on the front or outer part of the eye.

What is LASIK? Here at AbellEyes in Lexington, Kentucky, Custom Wavefront LASIK is the procedure of choice because it is preferred by experienced refractive surgeons (LASIK surgeons) around the world. LASIK is an acronym for Laser In-situ Keratomileusis, which means, “to shape the cornea within using a laser.” Before the recent advancements in technology, eye doctors were only able to use standard measurements to correct vision, meaning that prescriptions could only provide a certain level of corrections regardless of an individual’s needs.

Wavefront Custom LASIK
One of the most innovative features of the Allegretto Wave® is the way it uses wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea. In earlier laser correction systems, the “optical zone,” or area of correction, was centered on the front of the cornea; the result was a flattened circular area that ended with an abrupt edge, causing unwanted side effects like poor night vision, glare, and halos.

High Performance Vision
Allegretto Wave® is capable of producing some of the largest available optical zones. The optical zone refers to the portion of the cornea that has been corrected by the laser. A larger optical zone is especially important for night vision, and for patients with very large pupils. If a patient’s pupil is larger than the optical zone, they may experience poor peripheral vision, poor night vision, and a higher than normal incidence of “halos” and glare. In the past, this has been one of the biggest drawbacks to conventional laser correction surgery. Wavefront-optimized technology built into Allegretto Wave® addresses this limitation.
