What is LASIK Technology?
LASIK, also known as Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a type of refractive eye surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye. The procedure is used to correct common vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, by reshaping the cornea to improve the way light is focused onto the retina.
LASIK is a popular and effective option for people who want to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK technology has come a long way since surgeons first started performing the procedure.
At Putnoi Eye Care, we utilize some of the most advanced LASIK technology available today. Employing advanced technology allows for the best possible visual outcome in the safest manner.
What LASIK Technology Is Available at Putnoi Eye Care?
Putnoi Eye Care offers several advanced LASIK technologies to help patients achieve clearer, sharper vision without the need for corrective lenses. Three of the most notable technologies available at Putnoi Eye Care are the FS200, Wavelight EX500, and Contoura.
TheFS200 is a femtosecond laser that is used during the first step of LASIK surgery to create a corneal flap. This laser delivers extremely short pulses of laser energy that create tiny, precise bubbles within the corneal tissue.
These bubbles then come together to form a flap that can be lifted and folded back, allowing your LASIK surgeon to access the underlying tissue and reshape the cornea. The FS200 is known for its speed, precision, and safety.
WaveLight EX500 Laser
The WaveLight EX500 is an excimer laser that is used during the second step of LASIK surgery to reshape the cornea. This laser delivers high-energy ultraviolet light that removes tiny amounts of corneal tissue with extreme precision.
The EX500 WaveLight uses a proprietary technology called PerfectPulse Technology, which allows the laser to adjust its energy output and pulse duration in real-time to optimize treatment outcomes. This technology helps to minimize tissue damage and reduce the risk of complications.
Contoura is a topography-guided LASIK technology that uses a detailed map of your cornea to create a custom treatment plan. This map is generated using a device called the Contoura Vision Analyzer, which measures the unique curvature and shape of the patient’s cornea. The Contoura technology then uses this information to guide the excimer laser during the reshaping process, ensuring that the cornea is sculpted to match the patient’s exact specifications. This level of customization can lead to better visual outcomes and fewer side effects than traditional LASIK in patients with irregularly shaped corneas
