lasik Understanding the technology your surgeon uses may mean the difference between 20/20 or better vision vs. something else.

Laser eye surgery technology has been around since 1997. Since then, the technology and techniques have advanced, which means better outcomes for patients. To achieve the best vision possible, you should chose the best surgeon using the best technology. Since McMann Eye Institute is privately owned, Dr. McMann is free to choose the best technology for his patients and he has purchased the most advanced LASIK laser on the market.

To date, Dr. McMann has performed surgery on over 10,000 patients and 1/3 of those patients were in the US Military. Dr. McMann uses the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser system, which produces results of 20/20 or better vision for over 90 percent of his patients.

The First Step: Microkeratome vs. Blade Free LASIK

Dr. McMann uses the Zyoptix XP Microkeratome for the corneal flap creation step of LASIK. Some doctors will tell you that using a laser during this step is a better option. When the laser is used, it creates a series of small bubbles beneath the surface. Then the surgeon must peel back the flap in a manner much like separating velcro. This causes slight trauma to the cells of the eye and can take longer to heal. The microkeratome creates a clean separation of the tissue, which results in shorter healing times after your procedure.

The Second Step: The Excimer Laser

The excimer laser is responsible for reshaping the cornea. Earlier excimer lasers achieved startling results, but they were occasionally accompanied by compromised night vision and their technical limitations meant that a much higher percentage of prospective patients were not considered good candidates. This prevented many would-be LASIK patients from enjoying the benefits of clear, natural lens free vision.

Dr. McMann uses the most advanced laser on the market today, the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser system.

The WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser system allows Dr. McMann to provide a unique treatment for each eye through mapping thousands of data points - giving a fully detailed three dimensional picture of you cornea's shape and characteristics.

Utilizes an infrared video eye tracking system so if your eye jumps or moves during the procedure, the laser will pause until your eye is back in alignment.

The WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser system uses flying spot technology to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Providing outstanding clinical outcomes in U.S. FDA clinical trials, the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser system features a proven custom ablation algorithm with over 100,000 procedures performed worldwide.
