At Boston Vision, our team strives for continuous education in the latest advancements in techniques and technologies in order to provide our patients with the most effective and highest quality care. Offering the Alcon Wavelight® Ex500 laser is part of that quality of care. This excimer laser was built on trusted wavelight technology. It is a big leap forward in making more efficient and accurate refractive laser vision treatments.

The ablation speed of this laser runs at 500Hx. This means that the laser checks and rechecks the position of the eye 500 times a second, making this the most accurate and efficient machine in the ophthalmic market. This laser also has an average treatment time of approximately 1.4 seconds per diopter. In addition, the swivel bed was specifically designed to help decrease the time between the corneal flap creation and laser procedures.
