We at the Advanced Laser Center having the choice of many lasers have chosen the NIDEK EC 5000 for its safety, consistency, and flexibility in treatments. Our NIDEK is equipped with an eye tracker and it can also do customized treatments to treat large diameter pupils. A study by Dr. Paul Dougherty, a LASIK surgeon in Beverly Hills, concluded that treatments with the NIDEK were as good as or better than custom treatments with the LADARVISION 4000 and custom treatments with the VISX Star4. The link to the study is http://nidek-intl.com/OT041101.pdf Additionally, Dr. Dougherty was quoted saying “In my study the hype regarding the superiority of wavefront guided lasers was shown to be fiction.” When it was time for his LASIK, Dr. Dougherty having the choice of any laser chose the NIDEK EC5000.
Traditional LASIK is a very good procedure. While the risk of complication is very minimal, all surgery carries some degree of risk. Now, an advanced computer-controlled laser technology is available that significantly reduces the risk of complications. It is known as IntraLase® and the procedure is known as Bladeless LASIK. The IntraLase® laser is uniquely safe, precise, and offers patients more predictability with better results. The advanced IntraLase® technology has given many patients more confidence when considering laser vision correction. Surgeons frequently prescribe the IntraLase® laser because it provides micron-level accuracy and significantly reduces the possibility of risk and unpredictable outcomes. IntraLase® allows us to give many of our patients who have thin corneas the option of Bladeless LASIK instead of PRK. Bladeless LASIK gives visual recovery within 24 hours whereas PRK can take from weeks to months for full visual recovery.
-First one in Oklahoma
-Schlemflug photography (rotating slit photography at a 45 degree angle)
-Measures front and back surface of the cornea
-New standard of care in corneal topography and pachymetry measurements
OPD Scan is also a corneal mapping device, but it also gives us a wavefront analysis (Wavefront can help us determine whether custom or conventional treatment is necessary). The OPD also gives us very sensitive mapping technology.
-Technology that can measure front and back segments of the cornea.
-Ultrasound optical analysis
-Technology that finds and measures corneal thickness and the thinnest point
-Technology that measures the back surface of your cornea, increasing the Advanced Laser Center’s ability to properly diagnose the health of the ocular system for the purposes of ocular surgery.
-ORBSCAN can measure the anterior chamber depth for possible defects increasing each patients safety.
-First one in Oklahoma
-State of the art corneal hysteresis measurements that measure the elasticity of the cornea
-Great screening tool for corneal disease and glaucoma
-Non-contact, laser measurement of the eye so that for cataract surgery as well as ICL and other intra-ocular surgeries we can get accurate lens powers.
-The new standard of care for measuring implant power.
