LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that has now been utilized for decades, so there are several different types of LASIK surgery available to fulfill different patient needs. Each variety of LASIK can safely offer significant vision improvement, but there are distinct advantages of the individual LASIK lasers to be aware of. Here is a look at three types of technology offered for laser vision correction that you might choose from:
- Z LASIK: This procedure is unique, in that it is completely bladeless. Typically, an incision will need to be made to manually create a corneal flap, but Z LASIK eliminates this step by using a specialized laser to cut into the cornea. This allows for a more accurate incision into the cornea for improved patient safety and accelerated recovery. The advanced excimer laser used in the second step of the Z LASIK procedure produces better results than lasers of the past with improved chances for 20/20 vision.
- Allegretto Laser Technology: For patients with severe visual impairment from refractive disorders, the Allegretto Laser produces superior results. The procedure is faster and more effective at preserving night vision, which can be distorted with halos and glare commonly seen after other LASIK procedures. This is possible because the Allegretto Laser is designed to cater to the unique shape of each patient’s cornea.
- Nidek Laser: The Nidek Laser procedure is a reliable surgical measure that utilizes treatment zones to address the individual needs of every patient. Factors that are taken into account during the Nidek procedure are corneal thickness, current vision prescription, and pupil size.
