Wavelight Allegretto Wave® Laser Eye Surgery Technology

The Wavelight Allegretto Wave® Excimer Laser System is a type of advanced eye surgery technology that emphasizes quality, safety and precision of the results we achieve for patients. Providing patients Laser Eye Surgery using PerfectPulse Technology™ with the Wavelight Allegretto Wave ® Laser System for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism helps us meet our clinical objectives. PerfectPulse Technology™ ensures safe and precise laser energy delivery at high speed for vision correction procedures such as LASIK. Using the Allegretto Wave® we are able to apply tiny laser pulses to the Cornea to sculpt its surface with the utmost accuracy. The high-speed eye-tracker follows the eye’s fastest movements, checking the eye’s positions 400 times per second while ensuring an 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
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, ensuring that the beam is perfectly attuned at its destination.

Eye Tracking Technology
Due to the remarkable speed of both the eye and the Allegretto Wave® procedure, the laser beam will be constantly and minutely 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 Allegretto Wave® 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.
