Allegretto Wave Laser
The Allegretto Wave laser provides a treatment that not only corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism but also maintains the cornea’s natural shape. Allegretto Wave is one of the fastest excimer lasers available in the U.S. with the average nearsighted treatment taking approximately 10 seconds or less. This rapid treatment increases predictability and reduces the incidence of complications to almost zero.
Torrance ophthalmologist Dr. Hecht uses the Allegretto technology for his Marina del Rey, Torrance, and Beverly Hills patients. The Allegretto Wave laser is one of the first lasers in which patients reported a reduction in post-operative glare. The Allegretto Wave Laser is also quite impressive with its pupil tracking abilities.
The Allegretto Wave laser has been successfully used in Europe since the late 90s, where it has been the leader in international sales for the past three years. In the U.S., it was the first new laser platform to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in nearly five years. That clearance was for the highest-ever ranges of nearsightedness and farsightedness.
- Fast and efficient
- Accounts for the cornea’s natural shape
No other conventional LASIK treatment takes into account the exclusive curve and slope of a person’s cornea. “We can now provide a more consistent surgery over the entire treatment area, not just in the center,” Dr. Hecht says.
Equipped with all these proven advantages, the Alllegretto Wave laser is one step closer to optimal laser vision correction.
- Vision accuracy, total control
- Superior performance
- Excellent clinical results
- Safe with PerfectPulse Technology
- Smart energy control
- Eye tracking technology
The Allegretto Wave laser 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 than normal 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 less sharp peripheral vision than if the optical zone is larger. Better night vision and less “halos” and glare may result from larger optical zones. The larger optical zones have improved patients’ vision.
