General Info:
LASIK Nevada uses the Allegretto Wave and Visx Star S4 excimer laser along with other advanced technologies. We pride ourselves on being a leader in laser vision correction innovation and offer several different laser technologies to better meet the individual needs of our patients. Dr. Rothman and his staff are delighted to share their expertise and experience in laser vision correction for the benefit of their patients. Although most of our patients live in the Las Vegas or Reno areas, many of our patients come from other states. Please call ahead if you are planning on visiting us on your next trip to Las Vegas, Reno or Carson City.
What is laser vision correction (LVC)? These are refractive procedures performed with an excimer laser. The excimer generates ultraviolet light of a specific wavelength (193 nanometers) by sending high-voltage electrical energy through a cavity containing Argon Fluoride gas. The beam that is emitted has enough energy to break the bonds between the molecules that make up the tissue on your eye's surface (the cornea). Because it is a photochemical and not a heating process, it allows the surgeon to sculpt very precise amounts of corneal tissue from above without any damaging to neighboring/adjacent tissue. What is the history of the excimer laser? The excimer laser was developed at IBM in 1976, and was used to etch computer microchips. Its extreme precision with negligible damage to adjacent tissue made it a very attractive tool for other applications, and in 1983, Stephen L. Trokel, M.D., in cooperation with R. Srinivasan, a physicist, applied it to corneal tissue in a New York laboratory. The first sighted eye was treated with the excimer laser at LSU on January 14, 1987. Between 1987 and 1995 numerous laser manufacturers, including VISX and Summit Technology, worked toward U.S. approval to use the Argon Fluoride excimer laser. What procedures are performed with the excimer laser? LASIK, or laser in-situ keratomileusis, and PRK, or Photorefractive Keratectomy
