The industry-leading Allegretto Wave laser is the standard of care for all LASIK patients. Utilizing wavefront-optimized technology, the laser takes into account the unique curvature of each individual's corneal shape, improving visual results and reducing nighttime glare. The Allegretto Wave also tracks eye movement and makes adjustments 200 times per second. Each laser pulse is automatically checked three times and adjusted if necessary before it is delivered to the cornea. Each pulse is also non-overlapping increasing accuracy and safety.
