OptiLASIK All Laser LASIK

At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, we believe in only technology that is the safest and most predictable technology available. That is why Dr. Mozayeni only performs all-laser, blade free LASIK utilizing complementing lasers: The WaveLight FS200 and the WaveLight EX500 Laser.

Full transparency is a big part of our commitment to our patients. That includes how we approach explaining and advertising our technology. Dr. Mozayeni himself will take the time to fully answer any questions you may have regarding the lasers and technology that will be used for your laser vision correction, from FDA approvals to the way the laser works. Dr. Mozayeni takes pride in investing in the most up to date technology that delivers the best possible outcome for each patient’s unique needs. From start to finish, our goal is to ensure that our patients are confident in their understanding of the LASIK technology that will be used on their eyes. 

When Dr. Mozayeni performs OptiLASIK there are several steps taken: 

Understanding Your Eyes

We utilize several of the most advanced corneal mapping systems including the latest Pentacam® system, and Wavefront technology. Wavefront refers to a process by which mapping information is used to customize the laser treatment. Because each person’s eye processes light differently and has different curvature, your mapping is unique to you and will help us personalize your treatment, assuring predictable optimal results. Providence Eye utilizes Wavefront diagnostic technology as part of every person’s evaluation, which allows Dr. Mozayeni to determine the exact correction that is best for you.

Making the Flap

This is a critical step. Utilizing a laser, NOT a blade, is truly paramount to producing an optimal result. Although it is industry standard to make the flap with a laser as opposed to a blade, there are many in the Charlotte region who are still utilizing a blade. When it comes to “making flaps” Dr. Mozayeni sets himself apart from others because the technology he has invested in makes “the best flaps” while simultaneously making the patient the most comfortable. Dr. Mozayeni creates the corneal flap using the WaveLight FS 200 Laser. Its arrival to the U.S. LASIK industry in October 2010 brought us the most significant technology upgrade in ten years.

Reshaping the Cornea

Reshaping the cornea is the step that actualy corrects your vision.  Dr. Mozayeni utilzies all of the data that was gathered during your consultation but speficially the information obtained from the Pentacam, which shows Dr. Mozayeni your cornea in detail, to determine how to reshape your cornea.  Once the cornea is exposed, Dr. Mozayeni reshapes the underlying tissue using the WaveLight EX500.

All-laser, blade-free LASIK has proven itself to be safer, more precise, and more predictable since it was introduced in 2002. Millions of procedures have been performed worldwide since 2002 and is now accepted as the safest and most accurate method. Blade free LASIK is now the standard of care.

Dr. Mozayeni performs your entire OptiLASIK all laser LASIK procedure, and is the first and only Cornea Specialist offering the WaveLight FS 200 Laser AND the WaveLight EX500 Laser in the Charlotte region. These two lasers were chosen to not only provide the best immediate results for our patients, but to also ensure a long-lasting result with uncompromising safety and comfort.

The advantages of OptiLASIK with these two WaveLight lasers are:

  • Truly customized flap – ensuring a better outcome
  • Lower risk – Virtually eliminates the risk of complication during the procedure by utilizing a computer-controlled laser rather than a blade
  • A faster procedure time, and 
  • Increased comfort for the patient.

All laser, blade free LASIK is also known as I-LASIK and Z-LASIK. The procedure name is dependent on the laser manufacturer. It is important to understand which lasers (or maybe a blade) are being recommended specifically for you as the patient. Unlike Providence Eye, some LASIK practices have multiple “levels” of technology and although they may highlight their best laser, you may learn that your procedure would be done on a different (older) laser. The difference is in the technology and more importantly in the expertise of the LASIK surgeon utilizing that technology.

Dr. Mozayeni is the premier LASIK surgeon in Charlotte and is recognized as one of the top 5% in the country.
