NVISION Laser Eye Centers Now Provides the Fastest LASIK Surgery Available in the U.S. With the WaveLight EX500 Laser

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 27, 2014) -  NVISION Laser Eye Centers today introduced the Alcon's WaveLight® EX500 to provide the fastest LASIK surgery option available in the U.S.

"As part of our company's commitment to innovation in lifestyle surgical eye care, we've just added the most advanced and fastest laser of its kind available in the U.S.," says Todd Cooper, CEO of NVISION. "We are constantly researching the latest technologies available that will add enhanced safety and results for our patients."

The key patient benefits of this new laser include:

  • Sharper vision, day and night - The EX500 has greater speed and accuracy with better visual outcomes, including sharper images and decreased occurrences of halos and glares at night. 

  • A range of treatment options - The EX500 has the widest treatment range available for hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism -- people who have been told that they are not candidates with previous technologies may be a candidate for the EX500.

  • Precision - Patients often worry about moving their eye during surgery. The EX500 has an eye tracker that moves 10 times faster than the human eye can move. The laser tracks and verifies the position of the eye before releasing the laser pulse.

The Perfect Pulse Technology™ feature brings precision and control when sculpting the surface of the eye. Studies have shown that 93 percent of patients see at least 20/20 or better after the procedure and some patients reported an improvement in night-driving glare.(1)

"Built on trusted WaveLight Excimer technology, the EX500 is the next leap forward for NVISION in providing the fastest, most accurate LASIK experience for our patients," says Dr. Tom Tooma, NVISION Founder and Medical Director.
