WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q Laser
Following creation of the corneal flap, the second step of the LASIK procedure involves the excimer laser treatment or ablation. Since the mid 1990’s, traditional LASIK has been the procedure of choice for surgeons worldwide in the effort to reduce and eliminate the public’s dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Each year, more than one million people have LASIK to treat myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. As the procedure has evolved, patients are achieving better vision than ever before.
Leading surgeon Dr. Jonathan Davidorf takes LASIK to the next level of precision and accuracy with the WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q Laser. Prior to the procedure, diagnostic information gathered from your measurements is entered into the WaveLight Allegretto laser. Similar to your fingerprint and DNA, this information is unique to only your eyes. Each of your eyes will receive its own Wavefront Optimized LASIK treatment, with no two procedures in the world being identical.
The procedure takes only a few minutes to complete and is safer than ever. The WaveLight Allegretto Laser is equipped with an eye tracker that detects eye movements throughout the procedure. The laser continually adjusts its treatment direction before each laser pulse to compensate for even subtle eye movements. Most patients report little, if any, discomfort during and after LASIK laser vision correction.
For optimal visual outcomes, Dr. Davidorf performs LASIK in a specially designed laser room located within our office. To minimize risks and complications, factors such as humidity, temperature and overall air quality are closely monitored and maintained at optimal levels.
