Premier Eye Surgeons Use Innovative Technology
Dr. Goosey uses the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® EYE-Q Laser, the WaveLight® FS200, and their “Perfect Plus Technology.” This laser is able to treat myopia, hyperopia, and mixed astigmatism. Dr. Goosey uses the most sophisticated equipment available with full FDA approval – the Allegretto Laser and its Perfect Plus technology.
The Allegretto Wave® produces the largest available optical zone, virtually eliminating glare and night vision problems associated with older generation lasers. This laser also produces the smoothest corneal surface providing sharper vision and excellent results.
Dr. Goosey customizes a LASIK treatment for each patient’s individual prescription and cornea. Then, every 4-6 milliseconds, the eye’s location is measured and the internal mirrors of the Allegretto Wave® are automatically aligned. Right before the pulse is released, a second check is made to confirm that the eye has not moved. The laser tracks your eye four hundred times a second, and can move at a faster rate than your eye could ever possibly move. Ultimately, the clinical results are astounding for the WaveLight® Laser System, and for Dr. Goosey.
