The Excimer Laser
The Excimer Laser is an ultraviolet laser. It utilizes both argon and fluoride gas to create a non-thermal, or "cool" beam of laser light. This beam can break molecular bonds in a process commonly referred to as "photoablation." The laser literally vaporizes microscopic bits of tissue without burning the adjacent tissue; therefore, it is ideally suited for the treatment of the cornea.
WaveScan is a highly accurate, advanced method of technology originally developed for viewing distant objects in space – in fact, WaveScan was used in the Hubble Telescope. This technology has since been adapted for use in performing laser eye surgery and has been highly successful, offering precise results that, to date, no other equipment has come close to matching.
The iFS Laser
The iFS laser is a femtosecond laser that uses IntraLase technology to create highly individualized flaps for LASIK procedures. This laser is able to eliminate blades from the LASIK procedure. It is extremely quick and safer in many ways than traditional methods for creating LASIK flaps.
