Our commitment to offering the safest and most advanced laser technology is evident in our multi-million-dollar investment in three different laser vision correction platforms.
Our three unique laser platforms (more than anyone in Michigan) offer seven different treatment types. We are able to best match the unique optics of each eye to the best available laser technology and treatment to deliver superior results.View Our Laser Suites
The Zeiss Visumax is the worlds most advanced device for laser vision correction. The Visumax laser platform is utilized during the LASIK procedure during the flap creation process, as well as to perform SMILE vision correction. VisuMax is the fastest available laser in it’s class generating light pulses that are so short they do not heat or damage surrounding tissue resulting in fast, gentle, and predictable treatments.
VisuMax is manufactured by Zeiss a pioneer of optics and medical devices, from filming Lord of The Rings to capturing the Apollo moon landing Zeiss optical systems set the standard.
Laser Eye Institute introduced the first VisuMax in Michigan, and one of the first five in the United States in 2014. Currently our VisMax is one of only two in Michigan.
VisuMax low laser energy results in a treatment that is precise and gentle. It’s speed enables application of treatments with minimal disruption to the eye.
VisuMax is the first laser to utilize a dock that is curved to match the natural curvature of the eye. Resulting in a comfortable and gentle experience for the patient.
VisuMax and all optics are designed by Zeiss a leader in optical systems since 1846 that are reliable and precise ensuring consistent laser performance.
The Star S4 IR excimer laser was originally designed and developed by VISX, now a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, set the standard for laser vision correction in the United States. In fact, more LASIK is performed on the Star platform than any other excimer laser system. The Star laser sets the standard for both safety and results. It utilizes an eye-tracking system adopted from military technology to track eye movements on 4 axes over 1,000 times per second and adjusting the laser to any changes in eye movement.
When it comes to results the Star laser’s results are drive by wavefront guided custom treatment plans (commonly called a CustomVue treatment). This process involves using a wavefront aberrometer to beam waves of light into the eye and measure the response onto a sensor. This technology is able to detect minute optical imperfections not measurement through other means. This data is used to generate a treatment plan for each eye which is then applied by the Star laser resulting in outcomes that are twenty-five times more precise then conventional measurements used for glasses and contacts.
The Star laser also utilizes iris tracking technology used to improve both outcomes and safety. This feature registers unique landmarks on the iris when the Wavefront scans are taken. These iris landmarks are used by the laser to ensure the correct patient and eye are being treated. Additionally the iris landmarks are used ensure the laser treatment is precisely aligned with the eye, as little as 1 degree of treatment rotation can result in a degraded treatment, iris registration technology improves outcomes by eliminating the potential for treatment rotation errors.
Dr. Haddad is a national expert on the Star laser platform. Through his research he discovered an early flaw in the Star eye-tracking system and has lectured across the world on improving results with Star’s CustomVue technology.
Unique eye maps are used to craft a treatment that uniquely corrects individual defects in optics. CustomVue treatments result in better outcomes especially for patients prone to halos or glare.
Allows for eye tracking automatically across four axes. It repositions the laser to insure accuracy and does not require you to hold your eye still like other non-tracking lasers so that you can relax during the treatment.
MEL80 is an 8th generation excimer laser and the most recent LASIK laser to become FDA approved in the United Status. The MEL80 is manufactured by Zeiss a pioneer of optics and medical devices.
The MEL80 improves on tried-and-tested excimer laser technology with the widest FDA approval for treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism making it a great option for patients who may have not been a candidate for LASIK in the past. It features one of the smallest beam sizes of any LASIK laser resulting in the ability to precisely treat areas requiring more correction resulting in more precise outcomes.
Laser Eye Institute was the first center to offer the MEL80 in Michigan, and became the only center in Michigan to offer three unique laser platforms enabling us to best mix-and-match lasers to each patients’ eyes.
MEL80 utilizes a blended wavefront optimized treatment profile to greatly improve visual outcomes, especially for patients with high corrections.
MEL80’s speed results in the eye being exposed to the laser for shorter periods of times resulting in safer, more predictable outcomes.
MEL80 and all optics are designed by Zeiss a leader in optical systems since 1846 that are reliable and precise ensuring consistent laser performance.
Our Wavescan aberrometer uses waves of light to measure the visual imperfections in the optics twenty-five times more precise than measurements for contacts or glasses creating a wavefront map of your optics that is as unique as your fingerprint.
Wavefront technology used in both the Hubble and James Webb Space Telescope power our Wavescan system. Our laser platforms were developed by the same company who developed the optical lenses for the Apollo moon missions.
Our Pentacam HR utilizes a high resolution camera that rotates around the eye (known as the scheimpflug principle) capturing over 40 images from unique vantage points used to generate a 3D representation of your eyes unique curvature.
We obsess over the accuracy of our measurements and utilize multiple redundant diagnostic devices to check, verify, and double check every measurement we take to ensure the validity and accuracy of every treatment by checking every clinical data point.
Our vast historical data has enabled us to generate algorithms known as nomograms that enable us to predict visual outcomes by inputting diagnostic measurements and adjusting treatments ased upon similar historical inputs to predict treatment outcomes.
All of our technology works in concert to enable us to deliver predictable outstanding outcomes while effectively screening patients to if they are a great candidate for laser vision correction and predict their resulting vision.
Our iTrace diagnostic device utilizes ray-tracing technology combined with wavefront aberrometry. This data is then compiled into a dysfunctional lens index map (DLI). Our clinical team utilizes this data to determine where the imperfection lie in the patients optics resulting in poor vision and enables us to better screen patients for laser vision correction
Our Oculus Keratograph 5M is an advanced diagnostic device that enables us to effectively screen patients who may not be a great candidate for LASIK due to potential dry eyes. This device is able to non-invasively measure the amount of tears a person generates. It is considerably more precise when compared with traditional methods of measuring dry-eye that are much more invasive (they typically place a small strip of paper in the eye to measure tear flow). The keratography is able to screen for patients who may experience dryness after LASIK digitally and without ever contacting the surface of the eye.
If you’re ready to see beyond glasses and contacts, schedule your complimentary laser vision correction evaluation. We’ll utilize our advanced technology to determine if you are a great candidate for vision correction.Reserve A Consultation
