The Wavelight EX500 excimer laser is then used by Dr. Hirsch to make the necessary adjustments to the shape of the cornea. This laser works quickly to remove the tissue to the measurements needed for great vision. The Wavelight EX500 is the fastest laser on the market today, assuring you a quick and painless procedure.

The Wavelight EX500 excimer laser is:
