In keeping with our ongoing commitment to remain at the forefront of vision correction, the Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center offers one of the newest and most technologically advanced laser systems, the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q excimer laser. We are proud to be the first vision correction center in Houston and Austin to treat our patients with one of the latest advancements in laser vision correction and state-of-the art care — Blade Free LASIK and the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q laser system. This advancement in vision correction technology offers patients increased speed, accuracy and safety. In fact, the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q is the fastest excimer laser system available in the United States today.
The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q Excimer Laser is one of the newest generations of excimer laser technology and is the first system to receive concurrent approval for the treatment of both nearsightedness and farsightedness. The treatment profile for this laser was developed after intense study of individuals who have what is called “super vision,” or vision that is better than 20/20. The laser reshapes the cornea of your eye to mimic the pattern of eyes with “super vision” with unparalleled customization. Due to the laser’s unique wavefront-optimized ablation algorithm, the system delivers superior clinical results and a maximum level of safety for our patients.
The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q Excimer Laser is a “WaveFront-optimized” system. WaveFront technology not only corrects a patient’s prescription, but aims to improve the “quality” of vision during daylight and prevent problems with night vision. The system also has a unique eye-tracking system which automatically adjusts to changes in pupil size during treatment.
