Faster Flap Creation
- Featuring the world's fastest flap creation times, the 200 KHz WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser delivers precise, predictable outcomes
- Standard flap creation in approximately 6.0 seconds
- Automated vacuum control of the patient interface for consistent suction
- Minimized IOP and ocular distortion during suction
Offering adjustable hinge position and size, variable side-cut angles, flap sizes, and shapes, the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser allows surgeons to expand their treatment options:
- Adjustable flap centration after suction is applied
- Intracorneal ring segments
- Lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty
Precision at Every Turn
The WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser combines a small focus with low pulse energy and a unique cutting pattern for accurate flap creation:
- Sharp cutting edges
- Smooth stromal beds
- Easy to lift flaps
- Minimized opaque bubble layer
The EX500 was the first excimer laser to offer wavefront technology, which allows our surgeons to customize treatment to the cornea’s unique characteristics and aberrations (imperfections). This helps us treat more complex aberrations and deliver better overall outcomes.
Built for Speed
The EX500 emits 500 laser pulses per second for an extremely quick treatment. The benefit is decreased potential for patient fatigue syndrome, with the procedure being completed in seconds. In addition, the speed of the laser also significantly reduces the risk of complications such as dry eye.
Alcon’s Perfect Pulse technology ensures each laser beam is calibrated to safely and precisely sculpt the cornea to help you achieve your best visual outcome — and best of all, free of any potential for glare, halos or other visual symptoms!
The automated eye-tracking system monitors the movement of the eye so the laser beam stays on target during the treatment to deliver the highest levels of safety!
Wide Range of Treatment:
With the EX500, we can treat the highest levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness AND astigmatism. In short, we are able to help patients who were previously told they did not qualify for LASIK.
