Why We Love What’s New in Laser Technology
Here at KE Eye Center, we have an unwavering commitment to quality that permeates every aspect of our Centers of Excellence.
So it’s no surprise we pay close attention to the latest and greatest technology. At KE Eye Centers, we use the most advanced laser technology – including the Wavelight EX500 Laser and the Contoura laser platform – to correct vision through a variety of modern procedures. Why? Because advanced technology plays into great results!
In short, we love new technology because we love our patients!
The Wavelight EX500 used at KE Eye Centers is an excimer laser. These types of lasers have completely revolutionized the field of laser eye surgery. The excimer laser is used in Blade-Free LASIK during the second step of the procedure – changing the cornea shape to correct vision. Over the decades, the excimer laser has greatly increased the safety, efficacy and predictability of LASIK surgery. Today’s excimer lasers are far more sophisticated and precise than previous generations, allowing for more and more people to be able to enjoy life after LASIK. Even people with astigmatism!
While there are several FDA-approved excimer lasers on the market, which one is most suitable for you will depend on your unique vision, such as your degree of refractive error, the size of your pupils and the thickness of your cornea. The WaveLight EX500 Laser is equipped to handle a wide variety of vision conditions.
In keeping with this commitment to remain on the leading edge of everything new and amazing in vision correction, KE Eye Center is also proud to have the most advanced laser platform currently available in the United States… Contoura.
The full name of this exciting new technology is a mouthful. Ready?
Contoura Vision Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction is a highly advanced laser platform used during our Contoura Blade-Free LASIK.
Contoura takes Blade-Free LASIK further than it has ever gone before in that with Contoura, the technology does not just treat your eyeglass prescription. It does more. Contoura makes use of advanced diagnostic techniques to find and record imperfections in both the optics of the cornea and the cornea’s curvature.
Basically, it’s an overachiever. And at KE Eye Center, we are all about overachieving.
Based on the results of extensive clinical studies, Contoura has helped approximately 90% of people enhance their vision to the point of seeing more clearly without glasses than they did with glasses. That’s impressive!
Contoura is a huge step forward in treating common vision challenges and KE Eye Center is so happy to be able to offer it to you! Contoura Vision is helping many individuals see more clearly than they ever thought possible.
Modern lasers, such as those used at KE Eye Centers, offer precise results and complete customization for each patient.
