keywhitYour eyes, and specifically, your corneas are as unique as you are. Therefore, when undergoing LASIK surgery to correct your vision, it’s important that the technology used during your eye surgery is tailored to the specific shape of your eyes. Like any medical surgery or procedure, advancements in laser eye surgery technologyare continually improving the processes and increasing results. Updated technology available today allows eye surgeons to perform laser eye surgery with more precision.

At Key-Whitman Eye Center, we choose to use the most technologically advanced lasers available in order to provide all of our patents with the best results possible from their laser eye surgery. The precision of the technology used by our surgeons means our patients will receive the best, most predictable results possible.

Key-Whitman doctors use the Wavelight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q laser, because we believe it affords the highest levels of safety and the best outcomes for our patients. The Wavelight® laser uses PerfectPulse Technology®, which controls every pulse of the laser to the cornea. Every laser pulse is tailored and applied to the cornea’s specific measurements and shape.

The IntraLase® laser eliminates the need to use a blade when creating a flap in the cornea during laser eye surgery. The IntraLase® laser also dramatically reduces the risk of complications during surgery. So much so that there are many patients who may not have been candidates for LASIK in the past, but who are now able to undergo LASIK eye surgery with the technology used by Key-Whitman doctors.

The eye is the most intricate element of the human body. When considering laser eye surgery, it’s important to know the doctor performing your surgery will be using the most advanced technology available. Because safety and precision are of upmost importance to Key-Whitman doctors, we are willing to provide the best technology available for our patients. Many of our patients are able to enjoy dramatic vision improvement after undergoing LASIK eye surgery at Key-Whitman.

Not only are our doctors at Key-Whitman board-certificated in Ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology, but Dr. Whitman also requires his ophthalmologists to receive an additional certification in LASIK and cataract surgery by the American Board of Eye Surgeons. In order to receive this certification, our doctors are evaluated based on their surgical technique.
