WaveLight Refractive Suite
Paragon Eye Associates, formerly Ford Eye Center, utilizes the WaveLight Refractive Suite for its laser vision correction patients. The WaveLight Refractive Suite consists of the world’s fastest and most precise combination of lasers available enabling Dr. Ford and Dr. Blair to deliver optimum results.
The WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond Laser creates a corneal flap in approximately 6 seconds. For treatments requiring a flap, this laser makes the procedure safer and far more comfortable for the patient.
The WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser reshapes the cornea to correct your vision. Wavefront-optimized technology adjusts for the curvature of each patient’s cornea, customizing the treatment pattern based on individual anatomy. It employs a 1050Hz multi-dimensional eye tracker. This allows the treatment to remain perfectly placed even if your eye moves during the procedure. The speed, pupil-tracking and wavefront technology make this laser one of the safest, most effective and accurate available in the world.
The lasers combined utilize advanced data transferring technology. This communication between the lasers enables the surgeon to access patient specific data in real time during surgery.
