Increased Confidence Is The Main Reason For Learning About The Type Of Technology That Will Be Used For Your LASIK.
Your firmest assurance of achieving the best vision possible is choosing a skilled surgeon who is using the most advanced technology available. Since Dunes LASIK Center is privately owned, the doctors have always been free to choose the best technology for their patients.
Each generation of newer technology solves issues that earlier technology could not address. The lasers used today at Dunes LASIK Center achieve significantly better results, with greater patient comfort, than earlier systems.
The Intralase Blade Free laser and the Visx Star S4 IR excimer lasers, produce the best results Dr. Womack has ever achieved. These two lasers are renowned as iLASIK and are the most advanced and up-to-date lasers in the industry.
- The most advanced blade-free technology
The flap-creation step in earlier LASIK procedures was performed using a vibrating hand-held blade called a microkeratome. With the advent of the blade-free Intralase system the hand-held blade was eliminated, resulting in more accuracy and greater patient comfort.
- The most advanced excimer laser system
Earlier excimer lasers achieved startling results, but they were occasionally accompanied by night vision issues and their technical limitations meant that some patients could not be considered good candidates which prevented many would-be LASIK patients from enjoying the benefits of clear, natural lens free vision.
Dunes LASIK Center employs the Visx Star S4 with Iris Registration. What does this mean to you? The state-of- the -art technology available at Dunes LASIK Center can treat the unique characteristics of your eye that create your myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism and resolve them rapidly and with the highest accuracy possible.
