When you choose LASIK surgery at the Laurel Eye Clinic, you have the confidence that your eyes are being cared for using state-of-the-art technology. As part of our commitment to providing patients with the best care and outcomes available, the Laurel Eye Clinic in Duncansville now offers the WaveLight® Refractive Suite. The suite features the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser, the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser, and a swiveling patient bed. This advanced system provides the world’s fastest and most precise LASIK experience.
LASIK surgery involves the use of two lasers: the first to create a corneal flap and a second to shape the cornea to provide clear vision. Previously, patients undergoing LASIK had to stand up and walk between two lasers. Now, the patient remains in a reclining position and the bed is gently swiveled between pieces of equipment.
Glasses and contacts are limited in their ability to correct unique imperfections in each individual’s vision. In fact, thousands of individuals have the same prescription. With the WaveLight® Refractive Suite, however, no two prescriptions are identical. This precise level of measurement and treatment can enable you to achieve the full potential of your vision.
The WaveLight® features the fastest laser time of any laser on the market, as well as the broadest range of customized, patient-specific treatments. WaveLight® technology allows Dr. Stewart VanHorn to create a personalized treatment plan, with treatment options that take into account your unique visual needs, for your best results.
