Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser

Along with many other technological developments in LASIK technology, Alcon’s Wavelight® EX500 Excimer Laser is a way to achieve the most transformative results in laser vision correction. Our team offers some of the most advanced LASIK technologies and platforms in the Boston area, and we can help you achieve your best vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

What is the Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser?

This laser platform is one of the most state-of-the-art options available for laser vision correction. Faster than other laser options, its ablation speed can occur as fast as 500Hz, meaning it continually checks the position of the eye 500 times every second. It also includes a proprietary swivel design that reduces the readjustment time during surgery. This translates to the quickest and most efficient technology available for laser vision correction. In turn, you’ll spend less time in surgery and more time enjoying your new vision.

There are many other benefits to the Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser, including fewer side effects like sensitivity, dry eyes, or discomfort during your procedure.

Who is Eligible for the Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser?

Patients who are good candidates for laser vision correction can benefit from this state-of-the-art technology. This generally means you’re over 18, have blurry vision, and have a prescription that hasn’t changed within the past year. Other factors like the thinness of your corneas or astigmatism may mean you’re a better candidate for alternative laser procedures. During a consultation with our team, we’ll determine the best options for you.

Results and Recovery from Laser Surgery with the Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser

Recovery from laser vision correction is very fast. In fact, you can generally return to your everyday activities within a day or two. Most patients can see clearly within one day of surgery, although you may experience some side effects like dryness or sensitivity to light. You’ll be given special eye drops to help manage any symptoms. You’ll check in with us to make sure your eyes are recovering as needed and that your vision is clear.
