Lasers and Technology

Keil_OR_v2

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.

Announcing a second laser for better options for our patients

Dr. Keil is proud to introduce his newest laser, the Nidek Quest EC – 5000 with Topography Guided Ablation and OPD Topographer.

Nidek Quest EC – 5000

lasikEye Tracking System (ETS)
  • This advanced technology utilizes high-speed digital image processing technology to follow the patient’s eye, ensuring accurate and precise laser alignment and delivery during the procedure.No one can suppress all eye movements. Therefore, this pupil-tracking device (ETS) allows you to breathe a little easier knowing that if you move your eye during treatment the laser will follow your eye and continue your treatment.
MultiPoint™ ablation
  • More commonly known as topography guided Lasik, this enhanced technology allows us to smooth out any small irregularities in the cornea of your eye with the laser. Thus, giving you the best results possible.

Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q 400hz

Excimer Laser System

Allegretto Wave Laser for Lasik

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.

Ziemer’s FEMTO LDV & FEMTO LDV Z4 femtosecond laser:

Z-LASIK is blade-free, all-laser LASIK, performed by Ziemer’s FEMTO LDV femtosecond laser. This laser is the first compact, mobile femtosecond surgical laser, and unlike other methods of laser vision correction, Z-LASIK employs all-laser technology throughout the entire procedure.

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.

Some of the clinical advantages of Ziemer’s femtosecond lasers:

  • A smooth surface of stromal bed
  • Smooth edges for optimal flap closure
  • Thin flaps of even thickness
  • Rapid healing and visual recovery
  • Excellent visual outcomes
  • Expanded LASIK correction capability
  • Can be used in conjunction with presbyopia treatment (i.e. KAMRA Inlay)
