The Eye Institute of Utah Announces First WaveLight® Refractive Suite in Utah
As part of our commitment to offer the highest level of patient care and most advanced technology, we are excited to announce that we are the first facility in Utah to acquire the WaveLight® Refractive Suite – a state-of-the-art laser system used for laser vision correction surgeries such as LASIK and PRK. Dr. Darcy Wolsey, Director of LASIK Services at The Eye Institute of Utah, performed the first LASIK procedures using the WaveLight® Suite on May 2, 2014.
The WaveLight® Refractive Suite is the fastest refractive surgery platform available in the U.S. The new laser suite features the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser, the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser, and a swiveling patient bed. This integrated laser system, combining speed and advanced data transfering capabiliites, helps the LASIK surgeons at The Eye Institute of Utah further customize patient treatments with increased accuracy, precision, and patient comfort. The goal of successful vision correction surgery is to greatly reduce or eliminate the patient’s need for glasses or contacts by correcting refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
If you would like to learn more about the WaveLight® Refractive Suite or would like to schedule a free LASIK consultation with one of our refractive surgeons, give us a call today! During your consultation, our patient counselor and doctor can help address any questions or concerns you may have and learn more about your lifestyle and vision needs to ensure a personalized experience and treatment.
