LASIK Technology

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.
