WaveLight EX500 is the latest excimer laser approved by the FDA for performing Wavefront LASIK. It is the fastest excimer laser with a speed of 500 Hz. Other distinguishing features include the highest precision eye-tracking system, iris recognition, and the ability to interphase with Vario Topolyzer to perform Contoura LASIK.
The above features significantly reduce fixation fatigue, minimize corneal dehydration, and enable perfect centration during laser ablation. WaveLight EX500 excimer laser paired with VisuMax femtosecond laser represents the very best in Bladeless LASIK.
Dr. Paul C. Lee at CCRS was the first surgeon to perform VisuMax-WaveLight EX500 Contoura LASIK in the U.S.
