Alcon WaveLight® Refractive Suite
Victoria Eye Center continues to raise the standard for safety and precision in vision correction by researching and implementing the very best blade-free LASIK methods. We were one of the first vision centers in the nation to implement blade-free LASIK as part of our laser vision treatment process, and now Dr. Boozalis is proud to announce the addition of our new Alcon WaveLight Refractive Suite.
The Alcon WaveLight Refractive Suite is the fastest refractive surgery platform available in the United States. By combining both the flap creation and the vision correction procedures into one ergonomically-designed unit, data transfer capabilities are enhanced, the time between procedures is minimized, and the patient has more comfort. The entire process is Wavefront Optimized and uses Wavefront-Guided treatments, which means that patient-specific data is entered into the computer to create customized, precise vision correction treatment.
Corneal Flap Creation: WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond Laser
The WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond Laser creates a standard corneal flap in approximately 6 seconds. Most importantly, the laser provides consistent and predictable flap thickness. Dr. Boozalis oversees the entire computer-guided and calibrated process through a high-quality microscope. This allows Dr. Boozalis to adjust the placement of the flap at any time during the process, if needed.
Corneal Reshaping: WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser
The WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser sets the standard for laser precision, safety and durability. Using patient-specific diagnostic data, the excimer laser is able to create the ideal treatment profile. It automatically adjusts pulse placement to allow for any eye movement. This treatment reduces the potential for:
- Flap complications
- Corneal dehydration
- Eye movement sensitivity
- Patient eye fatigue
The goal of every patient treated with the Alcon WaveLight Refractive Suite is vision beyond 20/20, something inconceivable prior to the development of this technology.
