At Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute, we’re pleased to offer our patients the Next Generation LASIK procedure. It’s called Blade Free All Laser LASIK, one of the most exciting breakthroughs in laser eye surgery and refractive surgery history! With no mechanical incisions required, our All-Laser LASIK procedure is less invasive and offers patients unprecedented safety & precision.
Blade Free LASIK, used in conjunction with our new ALLEGRETTO WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond laser, also allows our LASIK surgeons maximum control and accuracy in customizing surgical parameters for each patient’s individual visual needs. With fewer risks and possible flap complications, our LASIK surgeons feel all laser LASIK is the safest, most predictable method of vision correction available today. The WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond laser was developed specifically to operate in conjunction with the Allegretto Wave ® Eye-Q excimer laser. The laser produces flaps in approximately 6 seconds and increases patient safety and comfort. This is the only system designed for complete integration between the excimer and femtosecond lasers. GWVI was selected to be one of the first sites in the country for placement of the FS200 due to our reputation for researching and developing the most advanced technology.
With All Laser LASIK – rather than using a surgical blade – we use a laser to create the corneal flap with a precisely predetermined pattern and depth. This painless approach enables us to safely create a flap of exact shape & thickness which results in faster healing and better quality of vision.
Although traditional LASIK is an extremely safe and effective procedure, all laser LASIK offers patients a new sense of assurance and piece of mind through added safety & increased precision in a less invasive manner. Feel free to ask one of our doctors or a member of our staff for more information about our new all laser custom LASIK procedure.
