LASIK laser eye surgery has successfully improved the vision of millions of people. The popularity of LASIK can be attributed to the desire of people who want to end their dependency on glasses or Contact Lens and the high success rate of the surgery.
If you are considering LASIK eye surgery, it means you are living with nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, and probably currently wear glasses or contact lenses. LASIK is a great way to reduce your dependence on, or completely free yourself from, corrective lenses. It may be especially appealing because of your profession or lifestyle. It could be that you cannot wear contact lenses and dislike the appearance of glasses, or you may just want to reduce the expense and hassle of glasses and contacts.

Laser vision correction is the method of reshaping the cornea to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lens. The lasik surgery is done by creating a thin flap by a device called microkeratome, which is a third generation instrument which literally guarantees total safety with perfect results using a patented ultra sophisticated computer controlled system. The exposed cornea is treated with a cool gentle beam from the excimer laser. Once the laser is applied (which takes only a few seconds) the surgeon places the flap back. It is a painless procedure where both eyes are treated simultaneously.
Its proven state of the art technology provides superior results in Wavefront Optimized, wave front guided, topography guided and Q-value adjusted laser vision. The Allegreto Wave Eye-Q by Wavelight provides both surgeon and patient with a higher level of safety and reliability.
The Eye-Q features additional technological innovations such as an enhanced pulse frequency of 400Hz, an eye tracking system adjusted to the high speed of the laser beam and a cross line projector for precise centration.
With the integrated and innovative NeuroTrack module for cyclotorsion control and its user friendly software the Eye-Q provides the physician with the opportunity of choosing a high class treatment for his patient.
