The Illinois Eye Surgeons have been the leaders in refractive surgery in Southern Illinois for 25 years.
Illinois Eye Surgeons have made a commitment to patient education, and state-of-the-art Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser with Wavefront® Optimized technology. Our experienced team of surgeons have performed thousands of refractive procedures and all treatments are “customized” to each patient to give the best possible visual outcome.
All of our surgeons utilize the Wavelight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser for creating the flap, and the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser to reshape the cornea. This is a marriage of the two best FDA approved lasers available and Illinois Eye Surgeons were the first to offer this leading-edge technology in this region.
The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser specifically addresses the shortcomings of other lasers. So what are the advantages?
• Maintains the natural shape of the cornea for most patients.
• The most sophisticated eye tracker utilizing 3 infra-red cameras to track eye movement during
the procedure at a rate of 400 frames per second.
• The fastest laser available in the United States.
WaveLight® was the first company to introduce high-speed laser vision correction in the U.S. Now, the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q takes the technology one step further with the excimer laser system available today. Thanks to the incredible power of the laser, many patients can have their vision corrected in as little as eight seconds. At the same time, the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q delivers superior results, with less risk of side effects.
This amazing technology, in conjunction with our experienced surgeons is what creates excellent outcomes. The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser is FDA approved for farsightedness, nearsightedness, and large amounts of astigmatism. Patients who were not previously considered candidates may now be approved with this technology.
If you have a Flexible Benefit Plan or “Cafeteria Plan” you may save up to 50 percent on your procedure by using pre-tax dollars. Vision correction may be tax deductible as a medical expense (check with your financial advisor).
Illinois Eye Surgeons does offer affordable payment plans and will be happy to assist you with paperwork.
