All Lasers Are Not Created Equal
There are three main reasons why the Bausch and Lomb Laser is superior to other lasers in the market.
First, the Bausch and Lomb laser is specifically designed for the LASIK procedure. Other lasers have been adapted from older technology to incorporate LASIK procedures and they don’t offer the same advancements as the Technolas Laser.
Second, the Technolas allows a greater treatment area. Bausch and Lomb realized that some patient results are affected by the direct relationship of the treatment area and the patient’s pupil size. This relationship is especially important during low light conditions such as driving at night. Bausch and Lomb’s larger treatment area allows the laser to smooth and blend beyond the required treatment area, minimizing the risk of glare and halos.
Lastly, the Bausch and Lomb Laser offers the dancing light difference. The Technolas Laser uses a narrow 2mm beam that literally dances across the cornea blending the larger treatment area smoothly into the surrounding corneal tissue for an unmatched final result. Other excimer lasers use a large 6-8mm broad beam or use a broad beam that has been split into several smaller beams that are rotated around the cornea. These other lasers leave behind steep, angular edges and an increased occurrence of adverse effects. The Bausch and Lomb Laser features advancements that greatly reduce poor night vision, glare, and halos while significantly improving daylight vision.
