Allegretto Wavelight Laser
Wavefront Optimized™ Laser Vision Correction
When it comes to lasik surgery, one of the top features of ALLEGRETTO WAVE® technolidy is the way it uses wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for curves of the cornea. In earlier lasik correction devices, the “optical zone” otherwise known as the area of correction, was middle located on or near the front of the cornea; the result was a nearly flattened area that ended could end with an abrupt edge. This has the potential to cause unwanted effects such as poor night vision, glare from light, and halos within the vision.
Eye Tracking Technology
Due to the remarkable speed of both the eye and the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® procedure, the laser beam needs to be constantly and minutely adjusted to the position of the eye at any given time. Every 4-6 milliseconds, the eye’s location is measured and the internal mirrors of the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® are automatically aligned.
Right before the pulse is released, a second check is made to confirm that the eye has not moved. This happens 200 times every second, once for every laser pulse released. If, at any time, the eye moves too quickly to be measured or moves out of range, the laser will stop and wait for the eye to move back into position.
See Like Never Before
The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® is a device that is capable of producing in some of the biggest optical zones. An optical zone is what as referred to as a portion of cornea that can or has been corrected by the lasik laser. A area larger than a normal optical zone is important because it helps with night vision, and for those patients with large pupils. A patient’s pupil can belarger than the optical zone, in which case they can experience reduced peripheral vision, potentially poorer vision at night, and finally a higher incidence of halos & even glare.
Vision - Accuracy, Total Control
ALLEGRETTO WAVE®’s revolutionary approach to laser vision correction minimizes problems associated with older generation lasers, such as night vision reduction, glare, and halos.
