About LASIK Eye 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.

Customizing The Laser Treatment

On the day of the procedure, anesthetic drops are placed on your eye. Using the Ziemer FEMTO LDV™ laser, a corneal flap is gently created and folded back. Then, the cool light from the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q excimer laser reshapes the inner tissue of the cornea to create a new curvature and to correct your vision in a matter of seconds. The Allegretto Wave®’s ‘PerfectPulse Technology®’ ensures that every laser pulse has ultra-stable energy levels and that every laser pulse is placed exactly where it’s intended.

 

This safe, high-speed laser also has an ultra-fast eye tracking system to follow eye movements during the procedure. Using three independent infrared light sources, the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q will automatically pause the treatment if the eye moves out of range and resumes treatment when the eye is back in position.

 

The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q customizes every treatment to the patients individual prescription and cornea. In doing so, the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q specifically addresses the spherical aberrations (visual distortions) that can cause glare and influence night driving.
