Key-Whitman is one of the first LASIK Center in the Dallas/Fort Worth area
to perform LASIK and PRK with the WaveLight® Refractive Suite. This
represents the most advanced state-of-the-art technology available anywhere
in the United States.
The WaveLight® Refractive Suite combines the integration of two different lasers:
WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser, utilized in the first step of the LASIK procedure
WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser, used in the second step which reshapes the cornea, correcting the patient’s
nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism
These two lasers have been ergonomically combined and optimized into the
WaveLight® Refractive Suite to give the patient exceptional comfort
and the doctor efficiency in performing vision correction procedures.
Advancements in laser vision correction have included the development
of faster excimer lasers and the use of femtosecond lasers to create more
precise lamellar flaps.
