Wavefront LASIK

Laser vision correction procedures differ in a number of ways, but conventional treatments use the same formula to treat every person with the same optical prescription. The Allegretto Wave, however, was conceived from the start to perform custom treatments and incorporates wavefront technology principles into each procedure while adjusting each treatment to the patient’s individual cornea.

Periperal Pulse Technology

Wavefront LASIK excimer technology is used to reduce the chance of glare or halo as a side effect with its peripheral laser treatment which custom and traditional LASIK treatments do not offer. With Wavefront technology, the laser is applied to the peripheral cornea and removes tissue to make the peripheral end of laser treatment flatter & less steep. The resulting peripheral curvature reshaped only by Wavefront lasers helps treat and reduce glare and significantly improves night vision.

Smaller Laser Beam

The Allegretto Wavelight Laser for eyes is one of the most advanced excimer laser equipment on the market. This machine uses a 0.9mm diameter “flying spot” laser beam that is much smaller than older laser models. This equipment operates at 400 hertz allowing Dr. Columbus to provide quicker surgeries and more precise results compared to older LASIK technologies. This finer beam results in much faster healing time.

Eye Tracking Technology

Older Lasik machinery requires the surgeon to stop the procedure if a patient moves their eye during the procedure. The laser would then need to be re-centered before the surgery proceeds. The Allegretto Wavefront Optimized Laser tracks the movement of the pupil and continuously operates even when the eye is moved. This advanced equipment lets Dr. Columbus provide faster treatments because there is no stopping and restarting during the surgery.

The Benefits Of Wavefront Technology

• Over 98 percent of patients achieve 20/20 vision
• 50 to 75 percent of patients reach 20/15 visual acuity
• Patients requiring a second procedure is reduced from 5%-10% with older traditional
treatments to 2-5% with Wavefront Optimized lasers.
• Fewer side effects such as glare/halos & inflammatory DLK after LASIK and PRK haze
• Fewer complications overall
• Clearer vision that some people describe as “high-quality definition” vision
• Better night vision results than glasses or contacts

I wore glasses as a child. Although it became the norm, it was a huge inconvenience and my eyes had become increasingly worse over the years. I could not do anything without my glasses. It was the first thing I grabbed when getting out of bed or just to see the clock. I had PRK a year ago after Dr. Columbus thoroughly explained EVERYTHING to me so I would know what to expect - from what he was going to do during actual procedure, how I would feel right after & the initial few days afterwards and what to expect in the months to follow. He has always made himself available from the rough days I had after the procedure up until my recent visit. The staff is exceptional! They are kind, accommodating and personable. It’s been a year!!! I drive, read, go about my day - I do it all without glasses! I’m amazed at how much my life has changed! Dr. Columbus, thank you is not enough for all you’ve done to ensure that I would have a better quality of life! Your expertise, support and patience is invaluable!

I had my Lasik done in September and couldn’t be happier!! The staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. Emily was soo nice and answered my 100 million questions without hesitation. Both Dr. Robert and William Columbus were very nice and knowledgeable about the procedure. The feel of the office is very laid back which I like. They offered additional products but didn’t try to push them on me. He said it could take up to two months for the best results but my vision has been excellent since the first week or two.

Scheduled double appointments a MONTH out. The day prior to appointment, they called, emailed and text me all the confirm.. the day of they call to move the appointments up or reschedule. I had to cancel my sitter on my only day off that I could make appointments in months... I understand they have surgeries but I had explained this was the only time slot I had without taking time off of work and school. I'm extremely disappointed as now I have to find somewhere to go much farther and will now miss time from work...

Dr. Columbus and his team did an excellent job informing me of and performing the procedure. My vision was just as predicted the next day and only got better throughout the next week. I’d highly recommend this institution to anyone considering the procedure.
