At Skyline LASIK, we are proud to offer our patients the Alcon WaveLight® refractive suite which includes:
- WaveLight® Topolyzer® Vario Diagnostic Device for advanced corneal analysis.
- WaveLight® FS200 femtosecond laser for precise corneal flaps.
- WaveLight® EX500 excimer laser utilizing Wavefront Optimize® and Contoura® Vision for topography-guided treatments while keeping the natural corneal shape.
- WaveNet™ Computer Network connecting WaveLight® laser and device into one seamless network.
WaveLight® Topolyzer® Vario Diagnostic Device
Corneal analysis using 22k elevation points of the cornea for ultimate precision and accuracy in the data that is used in your treatment plan.
Pupil centroid shift detection finds the exact location on your cornea where you particularly look through, so your treatment is placed as precisely as possible to optimize visual outcomes.
WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser
The Alcon WaveLight® EX500 is the fastest excimer laser on the market today operating at 500 Hz pulses per second utilizing PerfectPulse Technology™. This minimizes thermal load allowing only 1 in 5 pulses to overlap which allows the treated area to cool before receiving another pulse from the laser at a speed of 1.4 seconds per diopter.
The WaveLight®EX500 is the only excimer laser that uses Wavefront Optimize® technology which helps maintain the natural shape of your cornea after treatment.
Contoura® Vision is only found on the WaveLight® Ex500. This topography-guided vision correction optimizes the corneal surface that enhances vision quality. It corrects the imperfection in curvature of the cornea with respect to a patient’s refraction making the most precise and customized treatment possible. This means no one treatment is the same. About 70% of patients see better than 20/20. Patients also report improvement in clarity, contrast, and nighttime vision. Roughly 30% of patients state they see better than they even did in their glasses and contact lenses.
WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser
The Alcon WaveLight® FS200 femtosecond laser operates at 200hz pulses per second. It utilizes PerfectPulse Technology™ that controls every pulse transmitted from the laser to ensure accuracy, safety, and speed. This allows the LASIK flaps’ shape, thickness, and hinge position to be extremely
predictable and consistent, taking less than 10 seconds to create.
Not all LASIK centers in Colorado offer this level of LASIK technology. If you are considering LASIK, make sure you do your research and learn about the different types of FDA-approved LASIK technologies that exist so you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you.
