Laser Technologies

  • Custom LASIK
  • Contoura® Vision LASIK
  • Wavefront-guided LASIK
  • Bladeless LASIK or All-Laser LASIK
     

Coastal Vision is the only eye center in the Greater Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire area with the complete Wavelight suite—the fastest refractive laser suite in the U.S.

Patient benefits of the WaveLight® Refractive Suite:

  • Customized, patient-specific treatments
  • Eye tracking helps assure that each laser pulse is placed where planned
  • Large approved treatment range (myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism)
  • Reduces the potential for nighttime glare
  • Consistent refractive outcomes
  • An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) compensates for power disruptions and fluctuations for safe laser operation in all environmental conditions
  • Fully enclosed system with less sensitivity to temperature and humidity
  • Precision in corneal sculpting maintains natural shape
  • Helps reduce the potential for sensitivity to eye movements and patient fixation fatigue

 

The WaveLight® Refractive Suite Difference

  • The fastest refractive platform in the U.S., combining a 500Hz excimer laser and a 200 kHz femtosecond laser
  • Standard flap creation in approximately 6.0 seconds
  • Advanced application capabilities
  • Enhanced patient interface allowing the treatment of deep-set eyes
  • Ergonomic suction ring for minimized IOP and ocular distortion

WaveLight Refractive Suite

Technology Facts

  • Advanced suction technology
  • The fastest refractive platform in the U.S., combining a 500Hz excimer laser and a 200 kHz femtosecond laser
  • Unrivaled 500 Hz excimer laser ablation times at approximately 1.4 seconds per diopter* resulting in excellent outcomes
  • A 1050 Hz-type Eye Tracker, synchronized at 500 Hz, with 2 millisecond latency time
  • A precise 200 kHz Femtosecond Laser custom flap creation in approximately 6 seconds*
    • A minimization of increased intraocular pressure time
    • Potentially less stress for the patient
  • An integrated network that provides seamless data transfer of patient information within the WaveLight® Refractive Suite and WaveLight® Diagnostics
  • Customized, patient-specific treatments
  • WaveLight EX500 helps reduce the potential for:
    • Stromal dehydration
    • Flap shrinkage
    • Sensitivity to eye movements
    • Patient fixation fatigue
  • Built-in, non-contact, online pachymetry
    • Consistent refractive outcomes
  • The 0.95-mm Gaussian spot profile assures precision in corneal sculpting
    • Unlike a top-hat beam shape, the Gaussian beam profile allows a more uniform spot overlap and customized corneal sculpting
  • Eye tracking is an integral feature that helps assure that each laser pulse is placed where planned. A decentered treatment is one of the most serious complications of refractive surgery, resulting in:
    • Halos
    • Increased glare
    • Monocular diplopia
    • Reduced visual acuity
  • An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) compensates for power disruptions and fluctuations for safe laser operation in all environmental conditions
  • For a stable performance, the system is fully enclosed with less sensitivity to temperature and humidity, enabling efficient performance in a variety of surgical practices
  • Gaussian beam profile provides a smooth ablation without grooves and ridges

 

Contoura® Vision: The next standard in LASIK outcomes

The skills and care of your LASIK surgeon are critical to your outcome, but the technology used is equally essential. That’s why Coastal Vision is proud to offer Alcon’s WaveLight® Refractive Suite, the fastest refractive surgery platform available in the U.S.:

  • The WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser is the only excimer laser to operate at 500 Hz, with an average treatment time of approximately 1.4 seconds per diopter
  • The WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser is the fastest femtosecond laser available in the U.S., with a standard flap creation time of approximately 6 seconds
  • The swivel bed is designed to optimize time between the flap creation and laser procedures.

Now Alcon has made the WaveLight® Refractive Suite even better, adding the first FDA-approved personalized topography-guided LASIK solution with Contoura® Vision. Contoura® Vision sets the next standard in LASIK outcomes. The patient’s eye is imaged and analyzed using 22,000 unique elevation points on the cornea. This data is sent to the surgical planning computer to create an individualized ablation profile. The WaveLight® Laser automatically adjusts laser pulse placement to match the topography-guided treatment.

  • More than 98% of patients would choose it again
  • It even outperformed glasses and contacts (baseline BSCVA) in over 30% of eyes
  • It redefined visual acuity outcomes
  • It delivered a high level of personalization
  • Nearly 65% of eyes treated with personalized topography-guided LASIK experienced 20/16 vision or better in clinical study


When compared to baseline, Contoura® Vision improved symptoms typically associated with LASIK

  • Light sensitivity 5.2% decrease
  • Difficulty driving at night 8.0% decrease
  • Reading difficulty 8.7% decrease
  • Complaints of glare 4.8% reduction
  • Halos 3.2% reduction
  • Starbursts 2.8% reduction
