Patient Testimonial

"Since bringing the first LASIK system to Santa Barbara, I've made it my priority to provide the best available LASIK technology for my patients.

So I'm very pleased to bring you another first: the Wavelight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q Custom LASIK System. Other, older, technologies currently in use in the Santa Barbara area – Visx and the B&L 217z – are "broad beam" lasers originally designed to etch flat computer chips for IBM.

By contrast, my new Wavefront Optimized™ treatment considers the unique curvature and biomechanics of the eye. My Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q laser is faster, more accurate, and can treat a wider spectrum of patients, among other benefits. Many patients are getting results beyond 20/20.

This is leading-edge technology, and there's nothing newer in development behind it. I urge you to read all about it. From a medical standpoint, this is the new standard. So whether you travel to a large city or see me, please ask for the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q for your LASIK procedure."
