OptiLASIK® Laser Vision Correction with the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser emphasizes quality, safety, and precision for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. PerfectPulse Technology™ ensures safe and precise laser energy delivery at high speed for vision correction procedures such as LASIK and Advanced Surface Ablation. The high-speed eye-tracker follows the eye’s fastest movements, ensuring accurate placement of each laser pulse on the cornea. This makes the Allegretto Wave® one of the safest, most effective eye surgery lasers currently available today.
Smart Energy Control PerfectPulse Technology® simply means that every laser pulse is completely controlled from its generation to the point when it contacts the cornea. You can have peace of mind that the amount of energy in the laser has been calibrated to exactly the right level. After the beam has been created, it passes through three checkpoints on its way to your eye. At each of these points, the energy level is checked and adjusted if necessary.
Eye Tracking Technology
Due to the remarkable speed of both the eye and the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser, the laser beam will be constantly adjusted to the position of your eye at any given time. Every four to six milliseconds, the eye’s location is measured and the internal mirrors of the laser are automatically aligned. Just before the pulse is released, a second check is made to confirm that your eye has not moved. If at any time, your eye moves too quickly to be measured or moves out of range, the laser will stop and wait for your eye to move back into position.
Currently, the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser is among the fastest vision correction lasers for LASIK available in the United States. For most patients, the actual laser application only takes 4-30 seconds, depending on the amount of correction necessary. Of course, spending less time under the laser means an easier and less stressful experience during your Laser Eye Surgery procedure.
