Alcon Wavelight Refractive Suite – the world’s most advanced laser system provides customised, rapid, and highly accurate treatments in LASIK.
How it Works
LASIK is a two-step procedure that first requires the creation of a corneal flap using the Wavelight FS200 Femtosecond laser. The second step is the vision correction, using a second laser called an Excimer laser to smoothly reshape the surface.
The Excimer laser uses an infra-red multi-dimensional eye tracking system. The eye-tracker monitors eye movements at a rate of 1050Hz, or every 2 milliseconds, and guides the laser during treatment. If your eye moves outside of the trackers range it will halt the laser process until the eye is correctly positioned. This technology allows for excellent safety and surgeon control.
