Allegretto Wave Eye-Q
Dr. Lee Birchansky, MD., A.B.E.S, will perform your surgery at Fox Eye Laser & Cosmetic Institute on the newest Allegretto Wave ® Eye-Q excimer laser from Alcon. Dr. Birchansky’s expertise combined with this advanced laser system provides patients with excellent visual outcomes.
The Allegretto Wave laser system is the only laser that uses the Wavefront Optimized® approach to customize each patient’s treatment to his or her individual prescription and corneal shape. The Allegretto Wave laser system corrects your eye’s prescription with the objective of maintaining a natural post-operative corneal shape. Early laser surgeries reshaped your eyes without considering the way your eyes naturally curve, potentially leading to side effects such as glare and halos. Wavefront Optimized® treatment with the Allegretto Wave laser adapts to the unique curvature of your eye, reshaping it more closely to an ideal, natural eye. This results in better quality of night vision and less sensitivity to glare.
The most efficient laser available in the country, the Allegretto Wave ® Eye-Q works with a pulse frequency of 400 Hz, which means it reshapes the cornea at 400 laser pulses per second; correction time takes only a matter of seconds for each eye. Laser speed is important because it increases outcome predictability and reduces the chance of postoperative complications. It also provides a more comfortable experience.
The Allegretto Wave ® Eye-Q utilizes PerfectPulse Technology™ to help ensure each ultra-thin laser pulse is completely controlled while it sculpts the corneal surface with utmost precision.
Active Eye-Tracking System
The active high-speed eye-tracker combines with the PerfectPulse Technology™ to follow the eye’s fastest movements. This precise eye tracking system helps ensure that your eye’s location is perfect before every pulse and that the laser is always properly aligned, even if your eye shifts slightly during surgery.
