Allegretto WaveLight Laser

Augusta, Georgia


The Allegretto WaveLight Laser is a revolutionary approach to laser vision correction. The Allegretto WaveLight virtually eliminates night vision reduction, glare, and halos. It is fitted with a department-of-defense caliber tracking system.

The Allegretto WaveLight utilizes PerfectPulse Technology, which accounts for the laser's speed, precision, and safety. The smart energy control measures and adjusts energy levels in the laser pulse from creation to delivery. This control charts the eye's movement 200 times per second.

Every 4-6 milliseconds, the eye's location is measured and the internal mirrors of the Allegretto WaveLight are automatically aligned. Immediately before the pulse is released, a second check is made to confirm that the eye has not moved. This occurs 200 times per second, once for every laser pulse released. If the eye moves too quickly to be measured or moves out of range, the laser stops and will not let out another pulse until the eye is back in the proper position.

Unlike other laser correction systems, the Allegretto WaveLight adjusts to the patient's individual eye curvature. The Allegretto WaveLight sends extra pulses to the peripheral cornea, which compensates for the angle of the laser. The result is a smooth, effective optical zone.

The Allegretto WaveLight is capable of producing the largest possible optical zone of any lasers. If a patient's pupil is larger than the optical zone, they may experience poor peripheral vision, poor night vision, and a higher than normal incidence of halos and glare.

The Allegretto Laser is used for LASIK and other laser eye surgery procedures. We use the Allegretto WaveLight to enhance our patient's vision through Epi-LASIK and PRK.
