In order to maintain our status as one of the most advanced eye facilities in the country, we recently acquired the new Alcon LenSx – the first laser system approved by the U.S. FDA for cataract surgery. This system delivers an image guided computer precision that demonstrates an enhanced surgical ACCURACY and tremendous REPRODUCIBLITY. This has replaced many of the steps in the cataract surgery eliminating crucial steps in which may be prone to human error.
LARRAZABAL EYE has been at to forefront of Refractive Surgery since 2002 and has performed the most number of LASIK Procedures outside Metro Manila (>10,000 procedures to date). To maintain its status as one of the premiere eye facilities in Asia, we recently updated to a brand new state of art ALCON WAVELIGHT REFRACTIVE STATION.
This station combined is one of the fastest systems in the world by breaking the speed barrier by doubling its firing rate. This offers one diopter (1.00 or 100 grade) of correction in just two (2) seconds, with a 6.5mm optical zone. It represents a new generation of refractive technology referred to as “High Performance Vision Correction,” that allows patients to achieve exceptional results under all lighting situations, day and night, reducing incidents of “halos” and glare.
The station’s Femtosecond Laser ( WAVELIGHT FS200), a 200 kHz Laser that is impressive because of its speed and ability to make the flap needed for LASIK surgery. It allows the surgeon a freedom of choice with regard to diameter, shape, thickness and location of the flap to suit the individual needs of the patient.
