Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400
During an all-laser Lasik surgery, the eye surgeon creates an epithelial flap in the cornea and then uses an excimer laser to restructure the stromal tissue in the middle layer of the cornea. Restructuring the stromal tissue is what ultimately corrects the refractive error and improves the patient’s vision. At Dello Russo LaserVision, only the most advanced laser technologies are used to ensure optimal results. Drs. Jeff and Joseph Dello Russo utilize the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400 excimer laser in all their Lasik surgeries.
The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400 is the latest in excimer laser technology and it offers significant advantages over older systems. It is currently the fastest excimer laser system available in the United States as well as the first system to be approved for the treatment of both nearsightedness and farsightedness. This advanced system employs a Wavefront Optimized tool that charts the exact curvature and biomechanics to create an accurate and detailed three-dimensional map of your eye. It more accurately measures the curve of your cornea than other systems. The Wavefront technology recognizes your eye as a sphere and automatically compensates for the curvature of your cornea. Older systems treat the eye as a flattened sphere and focus the correction on the center of the cornea, leaving the peripheral areas unaccounted for. This is what causes the poor night vision, glares and halos that some Lasik patients complain about. The Wavefront technology sends extra pulses to the peripheral areas of the cornea, thereby eliminating Lasik side effects such as poor night vision, glares and halos.
Precision eye tracking technology is necessary when it comes to performing Lasik surgery. The eye naturally moves at an incredibly fast pace; the laser beam needs to move faster. It tracks the eye’s movement 400 times every second. The laser beams must be constantly adjusted to the position of the eye at any given time. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q measures the eye’s location every 4-6 milliseconds. If the eye has changed position, the laser beam will not emit until the eye is back in position. This ensures safety and unparalleled precision.
The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400 also features the Perfect Pulse Technology, a powerful high-speed laser that sculpts the surface of your eye by tracking the fastest movements of your eye and making adjustments based on those movements. This advanced eye-tracking system automatically adjusts to changes in pupil size during treatment, which also ensures that your vision at night will not be compromised. Every laser pulse is controlled, accurate and calibrated to the exact en energy level necessary for your eye.
The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400 is the fastest and safest excimer laser in the United States today. Its efficacy is highly praised and the results are proof of its functionality. More than 98% of patients achieved 20/40 vision within the first year following their procedure.
At Dello Russo Laser Vision, only effective, proven technologies are used because the best systems provide the best results. Drs.
