Alcon WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser
The Wavelight EX500 Excimer laser, built on trusted Wavelight technology, is a big leap forward in efficient accurate refractive laser vision treatments. What separates this system from the pack is that its ablation speed is running at 500Hz. In laments terms this is good news because now the laser checks and rechecks the position of the eye 500 times a second. Making this the most accurate and efficient machine on the market. With an average treatment time of approximately 1.4 seconds per diopter, its efficiency and accuracy can’t be beat. The new engineering that this product has is unlike any other Excimer laser on the market. The swivel bed is designed to decrease the time it takes between the flap creation and laser procedures.
The new innovative engineering helps reduce potential for: stromal dehydration of the cornea, flap shrinkage, sensitivity to eye movements, and patient fixation fatigue. It is clear that this system was designed with efficiency in mind with features like:
- integrated heads-up display
- fiber slit projector with LED light source
- increased working distance of 25 cm
- standard, high resolution video system
- built in, non-contact, online pachymetry
