NEW YORK, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- At a media event held today at the Dello Russo Laser Vision Center in Manhattan, New York, prominent lasik surgeons Drs. Joseph and Jeffrey Dello Russo introduced the most advanced eye laser by Swiss laser maker Alcon, which goes "beyond Custom-cornea".
Since Dr. Joseph Dello Russo introduced laser eye surgery to the nation in 1990, he has long been associated with the "firsts" in lasik evolution, leading the implementation of procedures such as Down-Up, Flying-Spot, Tracking, and in recent years the No-blade lasik (2002), as well as Custom-Cornea by Alcon (2003).
Alcon, Inc. has now chosen Drs. Dello Russo to introduce their newest laser: the EYE-Q, the thinking man's laser. Alcon believes that it is currently the most advanced laser in the market. Although lasik is considered quite safe nowadays, the EYE-Q is more precise than other lasers since it only performs "customized" lasik on patients, reducing and even improving some side effects.
Each patient receives a treatment unique to his eye structure so that each person reaches his maximum vision potential. No two treatments will likely be the same. "Along with the greater precision is less need for enhancements," explains Dr. Jeffrey Dello Russo.
Patient comfort has been enhanced by the speed of this new tracking flying-spot laser. The average treatment takes about 10 seconds, allowing a more comfortable laser experience. Dr. Jeffrey Dello Russo reminds us that the no-blade laser takes merely 20 seconds to make a flap. Coupled with the speed of action of each of the two lasers is the lack of need for drops which makes the overall lasik procedure last only a few minutes for each eye.
Drs. Dello Russo stated that "just when you think lasik can't get any better, Alcon offers an improved laser technology that takes us even beyond Custom-cornea. The Alcon EYE-Q, THE THINKING PERSON'S LASER."
