SUPRALASE™ All Laser, No Flap
First Colonial Eye Center is the only office in Hampton Roads that offers the newest form of technology in laser vision correction, the all surface, no flap SUPRALASE™. SUPRALASE™ was discovered and patented in 2005 by our very own Dr. Rampona. SUPRALASE™ is safe for correcting myopia and astigmatism without the risks and complications inherent in LASIK® flap procedures.
SUPRALASE™ uses a technologically advanced excimer laser to gently and precisely reshape the corneal surface according to a custom-prescribed mathematical formula. The average treatment depth equals about one third the thickness of a human hair and the procedure takes about 45 seconds per eye. Patients describe the experience as "watching a light show", due to the cool beam of light emitted by the excimer. The healing process takes about 36 hours – so if you have the procedure done on a Friday and you will be able to go to work again on Monday.
SUPRALASE™ is a surface ablation procedure that combines an unique mathematical formula that helps customize the procedure with a very precise pharmacological regimen to secure its pristine outcomes to treat myopia and astigmatism.
SUPRALASE™ uses a technologically advanced excimer laser that produces a cool laser beam to gently reshape the corneal surface in a precisely prescribed, individually customized treatment. The average treatment depth equals about one third the thickness of a human hair. The treatment which takes about 45 seconds, has been described as “watching a light show”. The healing process takes about 36 hours, and most people are able to return to work Monday following a Friday procedure.
SUPRALASE™ provides what many people have been waiting for: the ideal combination of visual excellence and consistent safety without the risks and complications inherent in LASIK flap procedures. ” SUPRALASE™ – All Laser, No Flap.”
Being the inventor of the patented, FDA approved SUPRALASE™ procedure, Dr. Rampona has been selected to speak about SUPRALASE™ procedures at the American Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the largest meeting of its kind in the world.
