Keil Lasik is proud to offer patients the most advanced technology available
Dr. Michael Keil owns, operates and maintains the most advanced FDA approved lasers: Nidek Quest, Allegretto Wave, Ziemer FEMTO LDV, Ziemer FEMTO LDV4. The Nidek Quest and the Allegretto Wave are the lasers that will perform your treatment, whereas the Ziemer’s femtosecond lasers are the lasers that create the flap on your cornea before treatment.

Dr. Keil is proud to introduce his newest laser, the Nidek Quest EC – 5000 with Topography Guided Ablation and OPD Topographer.
Excimer Laser System
Right from the start, this FDA approved platform laser was designed, for custom laser vision correction.
People undergoing LASIK or other refractive procedures with Alcon Wavelight will benefit from the laser’s ability to reshape the eye while compensating for the cornea’s naturally aspheric (not perfectly round) shape.
Unlike older excimer lasers, which remove eye tissue in a central, flat manner that creates an edge, Alcon Wavelight’s PerfectPulse technology uniformly applies tiny pinpoints of laser pulses adjusted to each eye’s specific curvature. With this unique system, eye tissue is reshaped in a smooth, consistent manner that provides the very best vision result.
What does this new technology mean for patients treated with the Alcon Wavelight?
For one thing, the Alcon Wavelight can treat a larger area within the eye’s targeted treatment zone. This means a greatly reduced chance of side effects such as seeing halos around headlights and bright lights at night. These side effects can occur at night or in darkened rooms, when the eye’s pupil widens and expands beyond the area of the cornea that received laser correction.
The Alcon Wavelight laser has incredible capabilities to personalize a patient’s treatment with its wavefront technology, which was designed by WaveLight, the company that pioneered this customizing technology. Wavefront measurements provide meticulously detailed information that can help eye surgeons address even obscure defects in the eye’s optical system known as higher order aberrations.
Other laser vision correction procedures use a mechanical instrument known, as a microkeratome, to create the thin flap of tissue on the front of the eye needed to expose the cornea. While these instruments are accurate, safe and reliable, there is a greater degree of variability in the thickness of the flap created. Bladeless Z-LASIK uses a highly precise laser to create the flap, which better controls the thickness and accuracy of the flap. For some patients, especially those with thinner corneas, the flap thickness is very important.
Overall, Z-LASIK offers improved safety, high definition vision clarity, and more accuracy than any other laser in its class. Patients can enjoy a faster recovery time, less post-operative discomfort and better results than ever before.
