Technology

The Bay Area’s Most Progressive Technology Lineup

Unique in the Bay Area, we offer all three types of FDA-approved laser procedures (LASIK, Epi-LASIK/PRK, and ZEISS SMILE LASIK), AND all three types of custom laser vision correction technology (Wavefront-Guided, Wavefront-Optimized and Topo-Guided Phorcides-enabled Contoura Vision), as well as Visian ICL lens implants and Corneal Inlays. Here’s our current inventory of technology :

ZEISS VisuMax® femtosecond laser

The most highly-evolved femtosecond laser. Ever.

Yes, we have the VisuMax! The VisuMax is used for All-Laser LASIK and ZEISS SMILE LASIK. Our VisuMax femtosecond laser represents one of the most exciting breakthroughs in Laser Vision correction in the past 10 years as it is the ONLY FDA-approved femtosecond laser that can perform the minimally-invasive “SMILE LASIK procedure” for nearsightedness, as well as All-Laser LASIK. This high-performance German-engineered laser is ultra-precise, yet so gentle that the patient literally “feels nothing”. Key features separate VisuMax from all other femtosecond lasers:

•  It’s the ONLY laser FDA-approved for SMILE LASIK
•  VisuMax lasers uses about one-eighth the energy of other femtosecond lasers

Alcon’s EX500 Allegretto® excimer laser

The most modern wavefront excimer laser on Earth.

In the Bay Area, we are the first Laser Eye Center outfitted with technology to perform ALL three FDA-approved Custom Laser Vision Correction (Wavefront-Guided, Wavefront Optimized and Topo-Guided Contoura Vision) treatments with the Alcon EX500 Allegretto laser. This ultra-fast German-engineered excimer laser can complete most treatments in less than 10 seconds and can track eye movements over 1000 times/second.

Striving for an ideal patient experience, we’ve linked our femtosecond laser “side-be-side” with our wavefront excimer laser to seamlessly provide:

  • Better visual acuity results
  • Better night vision results
  • Lower re-treatment rates
  • Optimal patient comfort

Our Diagnostic Technology

The most detailed vision analysis you’ll ever have.

Our “Advanced Vision Analysis” provides the technological roadmap required to navigate toward your best treatment option. Perhaps the most valuable aspect of our modern diagnostic technology (Pentacam, Vario, IOL Master, iTrace, Avanti OCT)  is represented by our commitment to identify subtle risk factors that reveal when the safest option is… not having a procedure.
