Our LASIK Technology

Laser vision correction has never been easier now that advanced treatment options are available at Claris Eye Care & Surgery! Experience better vision with our newest and most exclusive WaveLight Refractive Suite, which includes the EX500-Card-ReaderWaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser, the WaveNet server and FS200.

Now you can have an enhanced & expedient treatment experience with Wavefront Optimization (WFO). WFO allows more people to become candidates for laser vision correction because of the high treatment range for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. WFO offers better outcomes, such as less post-operative glare and halos.

Custom treatment At Claris

Every LASIK treatment performed by Dr. Carlson is a custom LASIK treatment! Wavefront optimized laser treatments are customized based on the patient’s glasses prescription, but also take into account corneal curvature and thickness. Then laser energy is applied in a unique fashion in the periphery of the cornea and has the ability to maintain a more natural corneal curvature with less flattening.

In today’s busy world, getting more done in less time is a treat! WFO treatments require less time for everyone, staff, patient and surgeon. The WaveLight Refractive Suite has several key components making it the most advanced technology in laser vision correction today:

  • WaveNet: An integrated computer network linking both lasers with all WaveLight diagnostic devices. It is also a dedicated planning laptop, which is portable, for data transfer and surgical planning. Patient Data only has to be entered once! It provides precise alignment of treatments with a 1050Hz multidirectional eye tracker and then the planning laptop is connected and all patient information and treatments are immediately loaded to both lasers so you are ready to go for the whole day.
  • Perfect Pulse Technology: Each EX500 laser pulse travels through a pressurized nitrogen beam path that is checked 3x for energy and consistency between the laser head and the patient.
  • Extremely fast: 1.5secs per diopter of treatment. Thanks to the attached FS200 Femtosecond laser – an ultra fast flap-maker with only 6 seconds of suction time (half the time required of other systems). This fast treatment will lessen over-correction rates.
