American Eye Center unveils most advanced laser technology

To enhance its services and maintain its leadership in the eye-care industry, American Eye Center unveils the most advanced technology for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism --- all Laser or bladeless LASIK surgery via the Wavelight Refractive Suite.

The first of its kind in the Philippines, this new equipment is very much in demand in all premier eye centers around the world. Its acquisition by American Eye Center reinforces the latter's commitment to be at par with global standards of quality and excellence in ophthalmic laser treatment.

The Wavelight Refractive Suite is known as the world's fastest refractive platform . It combines two of the most advanced lasers currently available for performing LASIK surgeróthe Wavelight EX500, a 500 Hz repetition excimer laser; and the Wavelight FS200, a 200 kHz Femtosecond laser.

The FS200 femtosecond laser is impressive because of its speed and ability to make the flap that is needed for LASIK surgery. There is no need for blades. The surgeon is given the freedom of choice with regards to diameter, shape, thickness, depth, angle and location of the flap according to the individual needs of the patient. Integrating seamlessly with the FS200 is the EX500, the fastest excimer laser in the market operating at 1.4 seconds per diopter of treatment. It can perform a wide range of customized treatments.

A very distinct advantage of this system over other available systems is that the Excimer laser is networked with the Femtosecond laser. With this system, All Laser LASIK becomes very convenient for the patient. The entire procedure is done in less than 20 minutes.

The Wavelight Refractive Suite brings an unprecedented level of safety and precision, allowing surgeons to provide consistently excellent refractive and visual results when performing laser vision correction.

American Eye Center has been breaking new ground when it comes to ophthalmic care since its establishment in 1995. According to Dr. Benjamin Cabrera, chief operations officer, and a specialist in Cataract surgery, American Eye Center pioneered many of the globally accepted treatments now widely being used locally. "We are continuing this trend with our investment in the femtosecond technology, because we know that quality and safety must never be compromised when it comes to treating eye conditions," he added.

American Eye Center's level of excellence is backed by the Associated Eye Specialists, the most experienced and longest-running EyeMD group practice in the country, composed of 18 doctors with various subspecialties. The center is also staffed with highly qualified optometrists, nurses and counselors to provide patients with personalized quality eye care.

American Eye Center is a full-service diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical eye facility fully accredited with the Department of Health and the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation. It houses the latest diagnostic equipment for the early detection and monitoring of all eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Cataract.

Its location in Greenbelt 5 in Makati City has a laser suite, an operating room, a recovery room, examining rooms, and a spacious reception area. Clients can also choose from a wide array of elegant eyewear from SPEX, a world-class eyewear center adjacent to the American Eye Center and managed by The Optical Shop.
