All Laser LASIK

All-Laser LASIK Eye Surgery in Savannah

Georgia Eye Institute is the first to bring All-Laser LASIK Technology to benefit patients in the Savannah area.

To enhance the safety, precision, and comfort of LASIK eye surgery and reduce patient fear and anxiety, LASIK specialists Jennifer Bromley, M.D.,  Mark Manocha, M.D., and the Georgia Eye Institute introduced all-laser LASIK to the Savannah region in 2012. Georgia Eye Institute remains the only provider of this level of service between Jacksonville and Charleston. The all-laser LASIK procedure features the combination of the Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser and FS200 Femtosecond Laser, which reduces the procedure time to minutes, and allows the procedure to be completed without knives or blades ever touching the eye.

The Bladeless procedure provides our experienced refractive eye surgeons even greater precision and control of the surgery, making the process of creating a flap safer and more predictable than standard microkeratomes using the outdated suction and blade incisions.

The Wavelight Excimer/ FS200 Femtosecond Laser is the first suite designed specifically to perform surgery. The FS200 gives surgeons complete control for personalized treatment, precise, predictable procedures and the most consistent results. The Wavelight laser features Perfect Pulse technology and a high speed tracking system that makes it one of the safest, most precise and effective optical lasers currently available.

LASIK eye surgery is a two-step process that includes making a thin protective flap on the surface of the cornea, which is gently lifted to allow the surgeon to treat the underlying corneal tissue. In the past, a mechanical instrument known as a microkeratome was used to create the protective flap. Although safe and effective, the microkeratome cannot provide the accuracy and precision attained by the FS200 Femtosecond.
