Dr Khalil is committed to providing his patients with the newest and safest state-of-the-art technologies. He offers LASIK and laser vision correction using a choice of 2 of the best recognised systems in the world today, the Allegretto Wavelight with its wavefront optimised technology, and the Visx CustomVue system with its wavefront fully customized treatment. Our high tech refractive surgery instrumentation, including the more accurate IntraLase laser in combination with either of these systems ensures our patients that they will have the highest-quality laser vision correction available.
Pre-operative analysis of your eye visual system is carried out with the Pentacam and/or the Wavescan systems, both are advanced state of the art systems for evaluation and detection of the minutest detail in your eye system, and fashioning treatment accordingly.
Femto-LASIK or blade-free LASIK is offered as well as the Moria Microkeratome system.
All of this should not confuse you in your decsion making, full consultation with Dr Khalil prior to the operatioon, and time given to answer all your qustions and consideration for your thoughts, wishes and concerns.
The IntraLase is the first of two lasers in the iLASIK procedure, and replaces the traditional blade or ‘microkeratome’ to create a flap in the cornea (the surface of the eye).
The iFS™ Laser takes refractive surgery, and more specifically, LASIK flap creation to a whole new standard of speed and control. It's designed to deliver biomechanically engineered flaps that can be customized for every individual cornea.
The IntraLase laser fires 15,000 pulses per second into the cornea, where the flap can be created at a depth and diameter determined by Dr. Khalil as appropriate for each individual patient. In addition to benefiting from this pinpoint (2-3 micron) accuracy, patients who undergo surgery conducted with the IntraLase laser are less likely to need an enhancement (follow-up) procedure than with other technologies.
CustomVue system combines the technologies of the WaveFront and STAR S4 Excimer Laser systems for high-definition, high-accuracy LASIK vision correction. CustomVue makes it possible to perform customized refractive surgeries using information gathered from your own eyes. This allows us to correct the very specific refractive errors that obscure each patient's vision so you can enjoy the best post-operative vision quality possible. Other benefits of the CustomVue process include faster treatment time and no need to dilate the pupils.
The STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser System is designed to bring Advanced CustomVue™ laser vision correction to life. Featuring VSS Refractive™ technology (Variable Spot Scanning) and VRR™ (Variable Repetition Rate) pulse-packing algorithm, the STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser reduces thermal effects on the cornea, allowing you to perform the Advanced CustomVue procedure quickly and effectively, while maximizing patient safety. Using the STAR S4 IR™ Excimer Laser System, it is possible to deliver the broadest range of wavefront-guided laser vision correction treatments to patients.
The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Lasers are designed to work with each patient’s individual prescription and cornea while aiming to improve what nature originally designed. The proprietary Wavefront Optimized® treatment considers the unique curvature of the eye, preserving quality of vision and addressing the spherical distortions that may induce glare and affect night vision.
Equipped with all the advantages of the proven WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser technology, the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser is one step closer to optimal laser vision correction.
The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser was designed based on an idea that was once only an imagination: a system with shortened surgery times, innovative and reliable eye tracking, and a clear ergonomic concept. An enhanced pulse frequency of 400 Hz provides even faster treatments. The laser also includes an eye-tracking system adjusted to the high speed of the laser beam and a cross line projector for precise centration.
"I want to thank you for being God's hand in giving me back my sight, such a bless that is worth a fortune. I can’t find words to express my gratitude and gratefulness. The procedure was a piece of cake, it was a painless journey that I feared so much until I was only comforted by your confident and calm voice explaining every step and making it so much easier"
