More Alcon refractive, Wavelight - FS200 & EX500
In order to offer the best refractive technology, the Rothschild Foundation (Institute Laser Vision Noémie Rothschild) is equipped exclusive to Paris and the island of France Suite Alcon refractive - Wavelight, which consists of two laser: the Laser femtosecond FS200 (realization of the flap in) LASIK) and the Laser Excimer EX500 (issuance of refractive correction). Unlike the other femtoseconds and excimers, lasers that operate in independent unit, completeness of the LASIK procedure can be programmed and designed according to a common to the two lasers software)femtosecond laser FS200 and EX500 excimer laser).
This platform allows the realization of LASIK 100% customized with unparalleled accuracy and speed gain, laser to correct nearsightedness, astigmatismhyperopia and presbyopia. These two lasers are currently the fastest on the market in their respective categories. Cutting a flap in LASIK is performed within 10 seconds by the FS200 femtosecond laser. The correction of a diopter by EX500 excimer laser is made in 1.4 seconds. So, the myopia of 6 diopter correction lasts less than 9 seconds.
Lasers are driven by a common interface, networking, and physically connected by a swivel bed, which increases operating ergonomics of the surgeon and the patient.
The following video demonstrates the main features of this refractive platform:
Speed of refractive treatments offered by laser Wavelight EX500 (frequency of 500 shots a second) allows to reduce the phenomena of dehydration of the cornea, and promotes the patient's comfort. The laser treatment is combined with the use of an eye tracker clocked more than 1000 Hz, which reduces the risk of shift or irregularity of the treatment.
The following video shows in real time the issuance of a 'Wavefront Optimized' treatment in optimized surface laser (advanced surface ablation): only the epithelium covering the area of treatment (9 mm) has been removed: the immediately adjacent epithelium is retained, allowing to reduce the process time of healing post. This technique avoids the use of material of epithelial cutting (as in Epilasik) and removal of the epithelium is only the central part of the cornea.
