WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser
At Laser Vision London we offer a customized bladeless approach to laser vision correction.
The Wavelight EX500 excimer laser is the first laser to offer Wavefront technology. This allows our surgeons to customize the laser treatment to the cornea’s unique characteristics and aberrations (imperfections) and deliver better surgical outcomes. Aberrations are a type of visual imperfections that may be a cause for glare, halos and overall poor visual quality. Aberrations are classified in a range from lower order to higher order. The higher-order aberrations are much more likely to have a significant negative impact on quality of vision.
The EX500 delivers 500 laser pulses per second for a very quick treatment time. This is beneficial in preventing the eye from drying out and avoiding patient fatigue during the procedure. This laser also provides peace of mind knowing that the automated eye-tracking system is monitoring eye movement throughout the procedure so that each laser pulse is delivered on target.
The EX500 is state-of-the-art technology that allows surgeons to treat the highest range of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
