“All Laser” LASIK and Wavefront-Optimized PRK are elective medical procedures designed to reduce or eliminate your need for contact lenses and glasses. Dr. Hyver performs these procedures employing a state-of-the-art laser infrastructure to help optimize your visual outcome and ensure your surgical safety.
The centerpiece of this infrastructure is the Alcon wavefront-optimized EX500 laser (right photo above), which Dr. Hyver employs in both the LASIK and PRK procedures to reshape the contour of the cornea to correct the patient’s vision error. The EX500 is Alcon’s flagship solution and the fastest excimer laser in the U.S. market, pulsing at 500 HZ, or 500 times a second. The EX500’s fast pulse rate dramatically reduces treatment time, limiting corneal dehydration and its potential negative effects on treatment accuracy, while the EX500’s fast eye tracker — which checks the position of your eye more than 1,000 times per second — reduces the chance of a decentered treatment and the associated risk of complications.
Despite its technical maturity, laser vision correction, like all elective surgeries, is not without risks or alternatives, something you can learn more about here.
