The Academy invests in patient care and maintains several types of lasers, which are used on the premises. For laser eye surgery, we use the new Allegretto WaveLight vision correction laser along with the Intralase laser for blade-free LASIK . The Allegretto WaveLight laser is the most advanced technology in LASIK , Epi-LASIK , and PRK . No vision correction laser is more accurate or safer than the Allegretto WaveLight.
The Argon Laser is used for retinal pathology (associated with anatomic defects, diabetes or vascular anomalies), glaucoma treatment and eyelash removal. The YAG Laser is used for treating after-cataracts, dissolving membranes in the eye and for treatment of acute glaucoma attacks.
The CO 2 Laser is used for removal of tumors and plastic surgery procedures.
