LASIK Technology

McDonald Eye Associates is proud to offer LASIK with the latest technology, including the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser and the Wavelight® Topolyzer™ Vario Diagnostic Device and Contoura Vision software. Together, this technology brings a new level of safety and precision to laser vision correction, offering improved outcomes for our patients.
Standard LASIK surgery requires cutting a flap on the cornea using a sharp blade that simply can’t compare to the precision and accuracy of a laser.

The blade-free procedure, along with the Contoura software, provides:
• Greater precision
• Proven safety profile
• Shorter procedure times
• Improved visual outcomes
• More detailed corneal mapping
• Reduced incidence of side effects after surgery

ZIEMER® Z-LASIK FEMTO LDV Laser

The Z-LASIK FEMTO LDV femtosecond laser allows a blade-free flap creation by using short pulses of light to gently separate the layers of the cornea, creating an ultra-thin flap and smooth surface underneath. In conventional LASIK, a blade is used to make the flap. At McDonald Eye Associates we offer the Z-LASIK procedure, which is performed with the femtosecond laser FEMTO LDV. This laser makes the whole procedure completely bladeless and enables your surgeon to tailor the procedure according to the very unique characteristics of each patient. Vision improvements are noticeable within minutes of completion of the procedure! With this technology we can truly provide you with a fast, personalized, painless, and safe procedure!
