All-Laser LASIK: The New Standard in LASIK
Using the most advanced technology to improve your vision.
St. Louis Eye Institute’s Top Laser Eye Surgeon, Dr. Adam Fedyk, has had great success allowing many St. Louisans to break free of their glasses or contact lenses and see clearly unrestricted for the first time.
All-Laser LASIK is a combination of the most advanced FDA-approved technologies: so accurate and so clinically advanced that it has been approved by NASA and the U.S. military for the professions they say are most dependent on accurate vision: astronauts and pilots.
What is All-Laser LASIK and how does it work?
The very best things in life are custom-fit, and that includes vision correction at the St. Louis Eye Institute. One size does not fit all when it comes to your eyes. And just like the tailoring of a fine suit or designer dress, your All-Laser LASIK procedure is 100% tailor-made for you.
With All-Laser LASIK, we combine Wavescan diagnostic eye-mapping and Iris Registration technologies, which allow us to diagnose your eyesight with 25 times the accuracy of earlier methods, with IntraLase bladefree flap creation and CustomVue, perfectly guided, LASIK treatment.
This technology allows unprecedented customization and accuracy, making it possible for the actual laser treatment to be fully customized to the unique characteristics of each of your eyes. This precise level of measurement and treatment can enable you to achieve the full potential of your personal best vision.
Step One: Customized MeasurementsWe include Wavefront Technology as part of your LASIK treatment. The Wavefront software allows us to correct minor imperfections unique to your vision, offering many patients better than 20/20 vision, so-called ‘super vision.’
Step Two: Laser-Created Flaps
The IntraLase FS laser is a computer-guided, ultra-fast laser that is used to create the thin corneal flap for the All-Laser LASIK procedure.
With the IntraLase femtosecond laser, expert Laser Eye Surgeon Dr. Fedyk can create a corneal flap that is designed precisely to the configuration of your eye, without cutting, ensuring rapid healing after the surgery is complete. In clinical studies, more patients achieved 20/20 vision or better with procedures that incorporate the IntraLase technique.
Step Three: Wavefront-Guided Vision Correction
Using the VISX Star S4 excimer laser, Dr. Fedyk performs your laser eye surgery. His expertise with this advanced laser system allows him to perform your eye surgery in about 3 to 6 minutes.
The Advanced CustomVue procedure provides the most precise, accurate form of laser vision correction available today. 3D eye tracking ensures that even if your eye moves, your treatment remains exact and specific to your customized All-Laser LASIK treatment program.
NASA recently approved the LASIK procedure for its astronauts following review of extensive military clinical data, which showed the use of two lasers (femtosecond & wavefront-guided) provides superior safety and vision as compared to earlier forms of the procedure.
In fact, all branches of the U.S. military have approved LASIK for their servicemen and women, including Naval aviators and Air Force pilots, thanks to a decade of military research and recent advancements in All-Laser LASIK technology.
