Gentle LASIK - Denver Colorado

Not all LASIK procedures are created the same.

At Cutarelli Vision we combine the safety of the All-Laser Intralase System with the precision of wavefront guided Wavelight Allegretto Laser, and combine them with unique techniques and experience in a procedure known as GentleLASIK™. GentleLASIK™ can take your vision beyond glasses, beyond contacts and possibly even beyond 20/20 vision.

LASIK - Denver Colorado

Intralase Femtosecond Laser

Denver Colorado Intralase All-laser LASIK

Eyes treated with the IntraLase have fewer visual errors (haze, glare, sensitivity), less discomfort, and less dryness than a microkeratome. The Intralase offers flaps of precise thickness, and greater control of the flap design, which reduces risks, while producing superior visual outcomes. The Intralase Femtosecond (FS) LASER is used to create the corneal flap. We are pleased with the amazing precision offered by the bladeless LASIK with Intralase machine, and hope we can pass along this great precision in the vision of our patients.

LASIK is a two-step process. The first step involves creating a protective corneal flap and the second step involves using an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to the desired shape to give you good uncorrected vision. At Cutarelli Vision, we perform bladeless LASIK and LASIK with a microkeratome. We feel that Blade-Free All-Laser Intralase is the safest and most precise form of vision correction. Although a blade or "microkeratome" is very safe, the Intralase can be safer. Because Intralase can make extremely precise, thin protective flaps, Blade-Free LASIK also allows Dr. Cutarelli to perform LASIK on patients who would not have been a candidate due to thin corneas.

Allegretto Wavelight Laser

Allegretto Wavelight Laser - LASIK Technology Denver Colorado

The Allegretto WaveLight utilizes PerfectPulse Technology™, which is responsible for the speed, precision, and safety of the laser. This control can track the eye's movement 200 times per second. Every few milliseconds, the eye is measured and the Allegretto WaveLight automatically aligns itself, immediately before the laser pulse is delivered. If the eye moves, the laser pulse moves, if the eye moves too much, the laser can pause. LASIK was highly successful even before the advent of eyetracking which has made it that much safer.

The State-of-the-art Allegretto Wavelight Laser takes an innovative approach to laser vision correction. This technology can reduce or eliminate glare and halos at night. It is also fitted with a tracking system to make sure each pulse of laser energy is precisely delivered. Unlike other lasers, the Allegretto WaveLight adjusts to the patient's corneal eye curvature. This allows for corneal reshaping in the patter of a smooth spherical curve, an improvement over most if not all other excimer laser systems.

This technology also has the largest corneal correction zone in excimer laser vision correction. The Wavelight Allegretto with its wavefront optimized pattern, reduces or eliminates glare and haloes in patients with large pupils. No other laser can match this feature or achieve this result.
