Sugarland Eye & Laser Center commits itself to offer the latest laser vision technology to our patients. Dr.Khokhar, our LASIK surgeon, is one of the few surgeons in the region who is trained to use multiple types of lasers including VISX, the Intralase, and even the new Allegretto Wavelight. The result is that Dr. Khokhar can use the technology that is best for your eyes.

 

One of the newest lasers in the market is the Allegretto Wavelight. This is the newest laser in the market and the first to get approval for use in treating both nearsightedness and farsightedness at the same time. It has a unique tracking system that automatically adjusts to the changes in size of pupil during treatment. The eye-tracking device is rapid and can capture the movements of the eyes 200 times per second, resulting in precise and accurate laser pulses.

 

The Allegretto Wavelight can make 400 treatment pulses in four seconds, making it the fastest vision correction laser in the United States. Because of speedy treatment, patients may experience less discomfort and stress.

 

Allegretto Wavelight is unique in it’s use of wavefront-optimized technology. Allegretto has wavefront data programmed into the laser to modify standard treatments. Aside from optimizing results, automatic compensation for the curvature of the cornea is possible during treatment.
