You may have heard terms like wavefront, custom, all-laser, flying spot, microkeratome, tracking and scanning while considering LASIK. The good news is that all of this technology means that many advances have been made in the LASIK procedure, now making it the most commonly performed elective procedure as well as one of the safest. Dr. Whitten has all of the very latest technology available to provide the right option depending on the needs of a particular patient….a customized approach. As a leader in laser vision correction, Dr. Whitten is closely connected to all of the equipment manufacturers and is among the first to receive the newest upgrades.
An excimer laser will be used to perform the actual reshaping of your cornea. The LASIK procedure is safer and more effective than ever with technology that creates a custom ‘map’ of your own unique visual imperfections. And no more worry about moving your eye during the procedure. Today’s laser technology contains a built in eye tracker and is able to respond to movement in a matter of only 6 milliseconds. With wider treatment zones, the lasers are now able to treat even those patients with large pupils. Whitten Laser Eye also features various methods for creating the ‘flap’ during your LASIK procedure, making LASIK an option for those patients with thin corneas or previous corneal surgery.
