Laser Vision Correction Technology
Dr. Joseph Leong-Sit and his staff at Eye Q Premium Laser are dedicated to staying at the forefront of technological and technical advancements in laser vision correction surgery in Edmonton. That is why Eye Q Premium Laser is exclusively equipped with the most sophisticated laser technologies available. By using the most advanced laser technologies for their vision correction procedures, Dr. Leong-Sit and his team are able to deliver customized treatment and exceptionally precise vision correction results.
Lasik With the IntraLase FS Laser
To start LASIK vision correction surgery, your laser eye surgeon creates a flap in the surface of the cornea, so he can access the corneal tissue below. After carefully pulling back the corneal flap, your Edmonton LASIK surgeon uses an excimer laser to re-contour the curvature of the cornea, thereby fixing the eye’s refractive error causing myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism.
With the conventional approach to laser vision correction surgery, the surgeon uses a microkeratome (a manual surgical blade) to create the corneal flap. With the innovative blade-free, all-laser Lasik procedure, Dr. Leong-Sit uses the IntraLase femtosecond laser for corneal flap creation.
Using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap offers several advantages, including added precision during corneal flap creation and a reduced risk of complications.
That said, each approach to corneal flap creation offers its own benefits and drawbacks. During your complimentary assessment, the Eye Q optometrists and counsellors explain your laser vision correction treatment options to help you make an informed decision about which method is best suited for your unique visual objectives.
Custom Femto LASIK Vision Correction
Eye Q Premium Laser also offers advanced Custom Femto LASIK vision correction surgery. With laser eye surgery, your ophthalmologist employs Ocular wavefront (IRX 3) imaging technology as well as SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S laser technology to provide you with customized treatment and extremely precise visual outcomes.
There are two principal advantages of undergoing advanced Custom Femto LASIK eye surgery in Edmonton with Eye Q Premium Laser.
First, the procedure involves the use of the Ocular wavefront (IRX 3) imaging system. Thanks to wavefront-guided technology, your eye surgeon is able to map out the unique topography of your eye, including highly subtle refractive errors called “higher-order aberrations.” He uses this distinct “fingerprint” of your eye’s refractive errors to calibrate the SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S excimer laser used to re-shape the curvature of the cornea, thus providing personally tailored treatment.
In addition, the SCHWIND AMARIS® 750S excimer laser is equipped with iris registration (IR) capabilities for increased accuracy during treatment. During your laser vision correction procedure, the IR feature tracks the iris. This allows the laser platform to detect shifts in the position of the pupil and adjust the treatment position accordingly.
