More About Vision Correction at Medownick Laser Clinic
To deliver excellent vision correction results, Dr. Medownick utilizes the state-of-the-art Allegretto Wave Eye-Q excimer laser. This is one of the safest, most effective lasers currently available. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q has the ability to correct vision beyond 20/20 through a high-speed eye tracking device with Perfect Pulse Technology, which is a precise, ultra-thin laser pulse used to reshape the corneal surface. This revolutionary laser offers maximum precision, a high level of comfort and the possibility of achieving near-perfect vision.
Prior to the procedure at Medownick Laser Clinic, each patient is closely examined to make sure he or she is a suitable candidate for laser vision correction surgery. During this complimentary appointment, we take precise measurements of the eye with leading-edge wavefront technology, which helps us detect even the smallest imperfections of the cornea. On the day of the surgery we repeat all tests, and administer a mild oral sedative for maximum comfort and relaxation, along with a topical eye anesthetic. Most patients who undergo Laser Eye Surgery Vision Correction with Dr. Medownick experience improved vision shortly after the procedure. Most patients at Medownick Laser Clinic have better than 20/20 vision after Laser Eye Surgery.
