Rochester Lasik Vision Correction
Laser Site is the first center in the Rochester
area dedicated exclusively to laser vision correction.
Dr. Allan Robbins
has over 15 years of experience performing all
types of refractive surgery. At Robbins Laser
Site, recommendations are made after a thorough
evaluation of your needs. Then the procedure and
laser is chosen to maximize safety and results.
SPOT LASER COMES TO ROCHESTER
doubt you have already heard about the newest
breakthrough known as the flying spot
first generation lasers produced by VISX and Summit
were classified as "broad beam" excimer lasers.
The light beam departed the laser tube as a 6.0
mm circle of that impacted the cornea at 5-10
pulses per second. Treatment patterns were controlled
with shutters and diaphragms, much like the optical
devices developed over a century ago.
years of research and clinical trials, we now
possess a better solution: the flying
spot excimer laser. By reducing the size of the spot and providing
computer control of the tissue removal pattern
(ablation), the degree of customization possible
takes a dramatic leap forward. Flying
spot lasers are capable of achieving smoother ablations with
greater precision than broad beam devices. Optical
zone size can also be increased to compensate
for large pupils and decrease the risk of problems
with glare and halos.
the Spring of 2000, the FDA granted Bausch
Lomb permission to market the Technolas 217
in the United States. The Technolas 217
utilizes a 2 mm spot at 50 pulses per second
and is approved
for mild degrees of myopia and astigmatism. In
June of 2000, Dr. Robbins was the first laser
eye surgeon in the Upstate New
York area to utilize
flying spot technology to treat myopia.
latest advance in refractive surgery is LADARVision.
Laser radar tracking was developed by NASA and
is an integral part of the latest LADARVision laser. Any movement of the eye during treatment
can affect placement of the laser beam, which
in turn can affect the precision of the final
corneal surface and the quality of vision. LADARVision also utilizes a smaller spot of less than 1 mm
for even greater precision and smoothness. With
LADARVision you can relax during your procedure,
confident in the knowledge that each laser pulse
is directed to precisely the correct location,
even if your eye moves.
LADARVision 4000 is
also FDA approved to treat nearsightedness,
astigmatism, and farsightedness.
In addition, only LADARVision is
FDA-approved to treat mixed astigmatism. LADARTracker is
the only active tracking approved by the FDA
is clinically proven to improve outcomes. Active
tracking is a vital part of the equation that
has allowed us to move the visual goalposts beyond
the 20/20 level! Dr. Robbins is proud to be
first laser eye surgeon in the Upstate NY area
to introduce the latest breakthrough in laser
THE PROCEDURE TO THE PATIENT
