Free Lasik Consultation Available
Here at the Marsden Eye Laser Clinic we use one of the worlds most technologically advanced excimer lasers, The SCHWIND AMARIS 500E.
We believe this laser provides outstanding features that will allow patients to benefit from improvements in accuracy, precision, speed, comfort and safety.
The features of this laser include:
- Automatic energy adjustment means maximum precision and minimum treatment time.
- Exceptionally small laser beams to deliver smooth and gentle treatment to the corneal surfaces for quick recuperation of the eye.
- 5D turbo eyetracker to provided fast registration and compensation of the slightest eye movements in five directions so to ensure that safety is obtained at every point in time.
During the LASIK procedure a mirokeratome is used to create a flap to the cornea. The microkeratome is an instrument with a suction ring attachment and a microkeratome blade which moves across the cornea, stopping at a preset point far enough from the edge of the cornea to create a hinged flap of paper-thin corneal tissue.
The microkeratome and the suction ring are removed from the eye and the flap is lifted and folded back. Allowing the cornea to be reshaped with the excimer laser Schwind Amaris 500E.
The micro-keratome used at Marsden Eye Laser Clinic is the Bausch & Lomb Hansatome. The Hansatome is engineered for high volume surgical efficiencies and reliability.
“The Hansatome is easy to use, reliable and has significantly increased the safety of our LASIK procedures". Richard Lindstrom MD
