EVERY DETAIL MATTERS

Few Centers in the United States take such an in-depth, detailed approach to ocular imaging and assessment you'll experience on the day of your evaluation.

None of these studies are painful. In fact, they are like cameras, each designed to inform your surgeon and eye care team about every aspect of your eyes, from the rods and cones in the retina, to the optical properties of the cornea.

AN EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON YOU

You will also undergo a detailed consultation with your surgeon, describing all of the potential risks and benefits for your particular situation, and to determine which procedure is optimal for you.

AS UNIQUE AS YOUR FINGERPRINT

Like a fingerprint, each cornea is unique. Because no two eyes are the same, LASIK may not be the procedure of choice for everyone.

At Monson Vision, we take a highly customized, tailored approach to the unique vision needs of each individual.

Monson Vision is one of the few centers in the country that offer not only SmILE, but the full-spectrum of safe, effective modern alternatives to LASIK including

Advanced Surface Ablation
Visian ICLs
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
SmILE
KAMRA Near Vision Inlays

These procedures allow us to take a safe, custom tailored approach to the features of each individual's anatomy and vision needs. Safety, anatomic variations, unique vision needs, consideration of development of future technologies all play a role.

Individualized planning, and high customization is one of the hallmarks of the approach Monson Vision, and one of the secrets to our outcomes.

Our Technology

When it comes to caring for your eyes, there should be no compromise. At Monson Vision, we use only the most proven, advanced laser vision platforms in the industry such as Allegretto Wavelight, VisuMAX and Ziemer technology that boast industry gold-standard standard accuracy and safety. You can rest easy knowing all of our laser vision correction procedures are entirely blade-free.

More about technology
LASIK Technology

Few centers have technology this advanced.

  • Allegretto Wavefront Optimized Technology

    The Allegretto family of lasers are the fastest and most precise laser systems for vision correction available in the U.S. Wavelight lasers represent a new generation of refractive technology far more recently designed than other laser platforms. They use technology referred to as High Performance Vision Correction, intended to achieve exceptional visual results under all lighting situations, day and night. The laser employs what is called Perfect Pulse Technology® to safely and accurately control every single laser pulse from start to finish. The flexible performance of Allegretto Wavefront Optimized® LASIK technology enables the correction of each individual’s unique refractive errors while preserving the cornea’s natural shape, effectively reducing side effects such as poor night vision, glare and halos.

  • Thinner Than the Width of a Human Hair
    That’s the precision of correction to gently shape the surface of the cornea with light.
    Each laser vision correction procedure is customized for the refraction and corneal curvature of each patient. The focused light isn’t seen or felt, and imparts no burning sensation.

     

  • The Speed  of Sight 
    Monson Vision uses the fastest FDA-approved LASIK platform available in the country.
    Each “burst” of the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q 400Hz Laser lasts mere billionths of a second before the laser shifts to its next position-up to 100 times faster than some lasers.  A correction of one diopter requires just two seconds of treatment. Which means shorter procedure times with increased accuracy.
  • Results
    After the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser procedure, patients are able to experience corrected vision. The laser offers highly customized cornea reshaping for the best possible results from almost any type of laser vision correction.

    Clinical data presented to FDA showed that in a large group of patients, quality of night vision after treatment was better than night vision quality before treatment, with best glasses or contact lenses. This is a first in history.

  • Eye Tracker

    Eyes make constant involuntary movements, even in LASIK surgery. The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system includes a closed loop eye tracker that tracks the eye’s location during surgery to make sure that the eye has not moved before delivering the next pulse of laser energy. Eye movements are tracked with each laser pulse.

  • Perfect Pulse Technology

    Perfect Pulse Technology controls every single pulse transmitted by the laser to ensure the accuracy, safety and speed of the procedure. With this monitoring, only every fifth pulse overlaps the previous one, reducing the risks of overheating the cornea. This also adds to the speed, precision and safety offered by the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system.

  • Why is VisuMax the best laser in its class?
    • More precise than any other femtosecond laser with positional accuracy ~3 microns rather than >6 with other, older femtosecond systems
    • Delivers better results at lower total energy outputs because the laser energy (fluence) is lower and more focused
    • Smart Bed treatment of the VisuMax is extremely sophisticated, helping maintain the perfect, gentle contact pressure optimal for flap creation
    • Curved contact surface employs a curved contact surface when rendering treatment to closely match the curve of the natural cornea
    • Much lower pressure than with all other femto systems and microkeratomes that is usually is accompanied by temporary loss of vision (a few seconds) — creating a better, more comfortable patient experience
    • For the engineers reading this description, the VisuMax delivery system is opto-electronic; all other femto systems use opto-mechanical design. This significant design difference allows greater positional accuracy and puts VisuMax in a class by itself. No other femto laser is capable of the spatial accuracy necessary for ReLeX SMILE.

Affordability

The Monson Vision Team is as proud of our financing as we are of our vision results and high-touch service. If LASIK is right for you, we believe covering the cost of the procedure shouldn’t jeopardize your ability to receive the highest quality vision correction procedures available anywhere.
