WHAT IS THE WAVELIGHT EX500 EXCIMER LASER?

The innovative WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser is the newest and fastest laser system available in the U.S. that enhances the precision, reliability and safety of laser vision correction.

With the EX500, Kelly Vision Center patients can expect:

  • Faster treatment – operating at 500hz, the EX500 is America’s fastest excimer laser. Faster speed means more accuracy and a quicker overall treatment. The speed of treatment is significant because it prevents dehydration of the cornea, which leads to better results.
  • More accurate treatment – the EX500 is equipped with a multi-dimensional eye tracker that calibrates the position of your eye over 1000 times a second, resulting in the most consistent treatment possible. Coupled with the enhanced speed of the laser, these improvements greatly reduce any chance of a complication whatsoever.
  • Wider range of treatment – the EX500 can treat even the highest levels of hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism. Even if you’ve been told you are not a candidate for LASIK, the EX500 could now be a treatment option for you.
  • Better results – The WaveLight EX500 has been proven to actually improve your night vision by reducing glares and halos, when compared to other excimer laser systems. It also allows Dr Kelly to give the most consistent better than 20/20 outcomes out of all LASIK lasers.
