All-Laser LASIK

At Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute, we only offer one of the most innovative LASIK techniques available because we want the best and most innovative treatment for our patients. All-Laser LASIK is one of the most advanced breakthroughs in laser vision correction and refractive surgery history! This technique does not require the use of mechanical incisions or a microkeratome (surgical blade), making the All-Laser LASIK procedure much less invasive and incredibly precise.

Wavelight Suite copyAll-Laser LASIK, used in conjunction with our new ALLEGRETTO WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond laser, also allows our surgeons an optimal degree of control when customizing the LASIK procedure for each patient’s unique needs. Our LASIK surgeons believe that All-Laser LASIK is one of the most predictable and effective methods of vision correction available. 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 six seconds and has the ability to increase patient comfort during the procedure. This is the only system designed for complete integration between the excimer and femtosecond lasers. Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute Institute 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.

All-Laser LASIK Procedure

lasereyeWith All-Laser LASIK, we are able to create the corneal flap with extraordinary precision and without the need for a surgical blade. This typically makes the entire procedure virtually painless, while simultaneously giving our eye surgeons the ability to create a flap of precise thickness and shape. This can lead to enhanced visual outcomes and a more rapid healing process.

While our experienced eye doctors feel that traditional LASIK techniques can be effective procedures that have helped patients all over the world reduce dependence on corrective eyewear, they feel that All-Laser LASIK provides patients a less invasive laser vision correction experience along with a significant level of precision and accuracy. This is why Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute has only offered All-Laser LASIK since 2003.

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.
