LASIK Laser Vision Correction


Can you remember the last time you woke up in the morning with the ability to read the alarm clock from across the room? Or relaxed on your sofa to watch TV without visual assistance? Even do something as simple as driving down the road? If sliding on your glasses or putting in your contact lenses is an essential part of your daily routine, undoubtedly you understand the constraints and limitations of poor vision. But what if you could make this too-tired routine a distant memory and embrace a life of freedom? What if there was a safe and reliable permanent solution to recapturing a youthful degree of clarity to your vision?

There is.

And while LASIK vision correction is often deemed elective, we at Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute understand that regaining your quality of life is anything but. It is our mission to take your dreams of renewed vision to reality with the most advanced technology the industry has to offer. Our all laser procedure and ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q laser system delivers superior results with precision and ease.

What is All-Laser LASIK?

HappyBladeless or "all-laser" LASIK offers a greater degree of accuracy and control than ever before seen with traditional LASIK procedures that employ a microkeratome, a metal-bladed tool. Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute relies on cutting-edge innovation with the IntraLase™ laser, which has been proven to create cleaner corneal flaps. The IntraLase™ laser uses infrared technology to precisely create a thin, smooth flap on the corneal surface that is laid aside to allow for the vision correction. Because of the extreme speed and precision characteristic of the IntraLase™ laser, the flap can be made without resulting in the usual negative side effects or irritation to the surrounding areas of the eye. After flap creation, Dr. Hayden will then use the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q, the fastest excimer laser in the industry, to initiate vision correction.

The fastest excimer laser available, the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q has revolutionized the LASIK procedure, allowing for a highly personalized treatment with proven results. The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® technology increases candidacy rates for LASIK while eliminating common side effects characteristic of older laser technologies, such as halos, glare and night vision reduction.

With ALLEGRETTO WAVE® technology, you’ll have peace of mind that your LASIK procedure is the fastest, safest and most reliable laser vision treatment available in the US today. By utilizing this technology, Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute ensures your laser procedure is not "one-size-fits-all" but is instead customized specifically to your eye. This premier technology provides safety and accuracy in vision correction like no other.

What makes the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q the best choice for your LASIK procedure?

  • Ultimate Precision and Control. ALLEGRETTO WAVE® technology considers your unique corneal curvature to implement precise work with the highest standards of safety and accuracy. The laser constantly checks the eye’s position – more than 400 times per second – to gauge the slightest movements and guarantee the laser is accurately calibrated to the dimensions of your eye.
  • Unmatched Speed and Power. What if we told you that your vision could be restored within a fraction of a minute? That’s right – it only takes 8 seconds for the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q to safely and accurately transform your vision and your life. With more than 400 pulses per second, the laser measures every minute movement of the eye and rapidly adjusts to conform to each change. This tremendous speed ensures a depth of accuracy never before seen in other LASIK laser procedures. Remarkable energy controls calibrate the laser’s strength to perfectly match the eye, ensuring the most accurate treatment available.
  • Clarity Without Worry. With ALLEGRETTO WAVE® technology, the speed and precision of the laser measures more accurately the peripheral edges of the cornea to more closely preserve and protect its original shape and contour. What does that mean? It means not only a better degree of optical clarity but also the elimination of unwanted side effects commonly associated with earlier forms of laser surgery. In older laser technologies, the area of correction or "optical zone" was limited to the front center of the cornea, leaving a sharp edge that caused irritating side effects such as halos, glare and reduced night vision capabilities. The ALLEGRETTO WAVE®, however, uses 400 pulses per second to more accurately measure the corneal contours in order to maximize the area of correction with a smoother peripheral edge, greatly reducing the risk of any side effects.

The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q gained FDA approval in 2006 and provided the following clinical results. At one year after treatment, statistics show:

  • More than 93% of patients reported they saw as well or better than they had with glasses or contacts;
  • Approximately 98% of patients achieved 20/40 vision;
  • Nearly 60% of near-sighted patients achieved 20/16 vision;
  • Both near- and far-sighted patients showed improved reactions to bright lights and night driving glare, while near-sighted individuals also reported an improvement in light sensitivity.

Are you ready to reclaim your life with the freedom from visual dependence? Is it time to cast off those contacts and get rid of those glasses?
