Dr Ilan Cohen discusses the excellent LASIK results he is seeing in his practice from the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q, the fastest excimer laser approved by the U.S. FDA for laser vision correction.
"While faster does not always mean better, faster truly is better for most patients when a skilled cornea and refractive surgeon employs the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q for laser vision correction surgery," said New Jersey LASIK surgeon, Dr. Ilan Cohen.
The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q is the fastest laser approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The wavefront-optimized technology gives the corneas a rounder, more natural surface shape compared with other lasers and, in turn, reduces the likelihood of poor night vision, glare, and halos after surgery. The Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q is the most innovative and modern vision correction laser on the market and can effectively treat patients who are nearsighted and farsighted.
"There are many advantages to performing vision surgery quickly while keeping it safe," said Dr. Cohen. "I prefer the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q, not just because it works 10 times faster on each eye than older LASIK equipment, but it is proven to reduce potential complications or unsatisfactory results. It also reduces stress and discomfort for the patient. Cutting-edge technology like this is what helps us at 5th Avenue Eye Center stay at the forefront of laser vision correction."
Dr. Cohen, director of 5th Avenue Eye Center, serves patients throughout New Jersey and New York with his state-of-the-art LASIK and cataract surgical techniques. He aims to educate people worldwide, not only about LASIK and related surgeries but about exciting advancements in excimer laser technology. He uses the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q on about 90 percent of his LASIK patients.
"All vision correction surgeries have risks. Even a qualified ophthalmologist using an Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q cannot ethically promise you a completely risk-free LASIK procedure," said Dr. Cohen. "But my years of experience, backed by independent scientific studies, prove that better technology and faster laser vision correction methods can greatly reduce the potential of unpleasant results, overcorrection and undercorrection."
5th Avenue Eye Center is a comprehensive vision center with locations in Old Bridge, New Jersey as well as the Manhattan and Queens boroughs of New York City. Dr. Cohen, a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, was fellowship trained in corneal and cataract surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, His innovative techniques and ability to correct other surgeons’ mistakes has earned him the designation of "The Experts’ Expert" by his colleagues and international media attention on CBS, CNBC, and FOX News.
