What are the different types of LASIK lasers?
At Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology in Beverly Hills, we use the following state-of-the-art lasers for LASIK surgery. When it is time to schedule your LASIK, your surgeon will discuss your needs and vision correction goals with you to determine the ideal surgical approach and which laser will be most suited to your condition.
Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q laser
The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser offers fast and accurate LASIK procedures. This laser measures your eye precisely to generate a 3D map representing your unique eye irregularities. Your surgeon uses this map to reshape your cornea with ultimate precision, going far beyond correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser greatly enhances overall vision strength and detail.
Advanced CustomVue® is the broadest-use laser available. This laser uses a proprietary algorithm that gives your ophthalmologist the precise measurements needed to provide optimal outcomes for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. You may also enjoy improved night vision after LASIK with Advanced CustomVue®.
IntraLase™ TM FS
IntraLase™ FS is a completely blade-free LASIK. In other types of LASIK, a small blade is used to make a corneal flap incision during the surgery. With IntraLase™ FS, your surgeon makes the corneal flap incision with a custom laser. This method allows for optimal healing and a very high level of patient satisfaction.
