Chances are you know people who’ve had their vision corrected. You’ve probably heard the stories about their ‘wow’ moment when they experienced a sudden, dramatic improvement in their vision right after the procedure.

For more than 39 years, Carolina Eye Associates has been at the forefront offering lens-free vision alternatives to our patients. While some centers just offer LASIK, Carolina Eye is a full service vision correction center offering blade-free, all-laser LASIK with the Wavelight FS200 Femtosecond laser and Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser, an ultrafast system known to result in better vision, better safety and the highest degree of precision. We also offer AK (astigmatic keratotomy) for astigmatism correction.

The Wavelight Suite

Operating at 400 HZ, the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® is one of the fastest excimer laser systems available in the United States, treating one diopter of correction in only four seconds. An average treatment will take no more than 10-12 seconds – in some cases even less. The precision of this technology has made laser vision correction an even safer procedure.

The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® is engineered to consider the natural shape of the human eye, aiming to improve what nature originally designed. Taking into account the unique curvature and biomechanics of the eye, the treatment preserves the quality of vision and addresses the spherical distortions that can induce glare and may affect night vision.

Using PerfectPulse Technology® the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® controls the energy level and placement of every laser pulse as it reaches the eye. The high-speed active eye- tracker tracks the eye 400 times per second, following even the fastest eye movements during treatment. If the eye moves out of range, the procedure pauses until the eye returns to a treatment position.

After years of clinical and technical research, the time has come to consider laser vision correction as an alternative to glasses and contact lenses. Millions of people around the world are already enjoying an improved quality of sight and quality of life.
