All LASIK is not created equal.

chic-300x232The Allegretto WaveLight® laser is used by Dr. Bonanni to provide the highest quality Custom LASIK to patients from New York, Manhattan, the tri-state region and around the world.

At Gotham LASIK, every patient receives Custom LASIK. Dr. Bonanni feels that everyone can benefit from Custom LASIK and that everyone deserves the better vision that it can provide. There is no better Custom LASIK than with the Allegretto Wave.

The PerfectPulse™ system is used to provide the proper corneal ablation. PerfectPulse™ measures and adjusts energy levels throughout the procedure while its high speed eye tracking device charts the eye’s movements 200 times per second. PerfectPulse™ is yet another way LASIK with the Allegretto WaveLight® offers our patients from New York and around the world with added security and precision.

One of the most innovative features of the ALLEGRETTO WAVE 400 Hz is the way it uses wavefront-optimized technology to automatically compensate for the curvature of the cornea. In earlier laser correction systems, the “optical zone,” or area of correction, was centered on the front of the cornea; the result was a flattened circular area that ended with an abrupt edge, causing unwanted side effects like poor night vision, glare, and halos.

ALLEGRETTO WAVE 400 Hz changes all that. The ALLEGRETTO WAVE 400 Hz compensates for the angle of the laser beam. In this manner, the aspherical shape of the cornea is preserved to a degree that older lasers simply cannot achieve. This compensation, combined with the incredibly small, 1mm size of the laser, produces a smooth, effective optical zone that results in what can only be described as High Performance Vision.

High Performance Vision

The ALLEGRETTO WAVE 400 Hz is capable of producing some of the largest available optical zones. The optical zone refers to the portion of the cornea that has been corrected by the laser. A larger optical zone is especially important for night vision, and for patients with very large pupils. If a patient’s pupil is larger than the optical zone, they may experience poor peripheral vision, poor night vision, and higher than normal incidence of ‘halos’ and glare. In the past, this has been one of the biggest drawbacks to conventional laser correction surgery. Wavefront-optimized technology built into the Allegretto Wave 400 Hz addresses this limitation

Better Night Vision and Glare Control

At night and in dark conditions, the pupil becomes larger to permit the maximum amount of light to enter the eye. Laser eye correction needs to take this fact into account. If the optical zone is smaller than the size of the pupil at its largest, there is a good chance that the patient will experience poor night vision or problems with glare and halos around bright objects such as oncoming headlights. ALLEGRETTO WAVE 400 Hz is able to produce a larger optical zone, virtually eliminating glare and night vision problems associated with all the other older generation lasers.
