Wave Light

Coastal Vision Medical Group utilizes the complete Wavelight suite—the fastest refractive laser suite in the U.S.

The WaveLight® Refractive Suite Difference

  • 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 the time between the flap creation and laser procedures.

  • Advanced application capabilities

  • Enhanced patient interface allowing the treatment of deep-set eyes

  • Ergonomic suction ring for minimized Intraocular Pressure (IOP) and ocular distortion

Technology Facts

  • The fastest refractive platform in the U.S., combining a 500 Hz 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

Cornea 1

Wavefront Optimized ® treatments result in a large true aspheric zone and a minimized transition zone

Cornea 2

Treatments without Wavefront Optimized ® treatments result in smaller optical zones and large transition zone

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

  • A fully enclosed system with less sensitivity to temperature and humidity

  • The 0.09-mm Gaussian spot profile assures in corneal sculpting

  • Helps reduce the potential for sensitivity to eye movements and patient fixation fatigue


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
