LASIK vision correction

WaveLight® Allegretto Wave®/Eye-Q Excimer Laser

Wavelight® Allegretto Wave Eye-Q Excimer Laser

Introduced in 1999, the Allegretto Wave® Excimer Laser system grew to become known around the world. Based on an ideal that was once only imagined, this laser system shortened surgery times and introduced innovative, reliable eye tracking along with an award-winning, space-saving design that captured the devotion of LASIK surgeons everywhere.

What makes Allegretto Wave® Lasers so special is their unique PerfectPulse Technology®, which is designed to ensure that every ultra-fine laser beam pulse is precisely controlled when sculpting the cornea, or surface of the eye.   Cornea : The clear, curved surface at the front of the eye through which light enters the eye. Along with the sclera, the cornea provides external protection for the eye.  

PerfectPulse Technology® does this with an advanced high-speed eye tracking system that follows the eye's fastest movements and ensures accurate beam placement with 3 different infrared light sources. During the procedure, the stability of every pulse is controlled by a smart-energy program, which automatically balances levels for smoother results.

WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser

WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser

Another in a line of cutting-edge technological advancements in vision correction, the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser helps doctors produce more reliable outcomes during refractive procedures.

  By combining optimal energy—including low-pulse energy during sharp-cutting edging—and spacing parameters through a highly precise scanning algorithm, the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser features ultrafast flap creation times, making it possible for surgeons to efficiently create consistent, high-quality flaps.   Lens: The transparent disc behind the pupil that brings light into focus on the retina.  

For maximum precision, the 200 kHz WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser is automatically calibrated before each treatment and a high-resolution microscope for excellent, continuous visibility throughout the procedure enables the surgeon to control every step during treatment.

In other words, with the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser, surgeons can create precise and reliable flaps, without grooves, ridges, or rough edges. Now that’s laser vision correction that’s truly a cut above.

WaveLight® Analyzer

WaveLight® Analyzer Diagnostic Device

Providing a new level of convenience for both surgeon and patient, the WaveLight® Analyzer is a diagnostic tool that helps eye doctors decide if Wavefront-Guided laser vision correction is the best choice for the individual.

After all, successful treatment of vision disorders requires an accurate diagnosis.

To do this, the WaveLight® Analyzer measures the complete optics of the eye and calculates the individual wavefront aberrations, or imperfections in the eye.

Considered an advanced approach, the WaveLight® Analyzer greatly enhances the range of possibilities when it comes to laser procedures.

Working in the same visible spectrum as the human eye, the WaveLight® Analyzer projects typical measurement spots onto the retina, which are captured by a light-sensitive camera. The distortion of the light spots on the retina, or back of the eye, in relation to the reference lights, is calculated and the wavefront error displayed. Based on this measurement, your surgeon calculates your individual treatment profile.

WaveLight® Topolyzer VARIO

WaveLight® ALLEGRO Topolyzer VARIO

The WaveLight® Topolyzer VARIO has been optimized to further enhance the range of customized laser vision correction.

Based on a placido disk system, the WaveLight® Topolyzer VARIO references 22,000 elevation points to create a virtual topographic map of your eye, thereby providing immediate visibility of visual defects, including decentrations, keratoconus, astigmatism, and tilt. In addition, it highlights aberrations and their influence on your optical system.

Your surgeon will use these data to define the respective treatment parameters within the proprietary software.

For the most difficult cases, the WaveLight® Topolyzer VARIO is an ideal tool for the preparation of highly sophisticated topography-guided laser vision corrections.

WaveLight® Oculyzer II

WaveLight® Oculyzer II

The WaveLight® Oculyzer II provides your surgeon with a new level of diagnostic information. Advanced diagnostic testing makes refractive surgery safer and increases the level of predictability.

A high-resolution camera rotates around the eye, delivering up to 138,000 measuring points. Based on those, a 3-dimensional model of your eye is created, delivering state-of-the-art diagnostic information. The data are then transferred to a WaveLight® Excimer Laser system to perform topography-guided, customized refractive treatments.

The WaveLight® Oculyzer II is a professional solution especially for highly complicated cases: Extensive diagnosis providing ultimate treatment capabilities and plays for safety.
