Looking for superb outcomes for procedures like PRK, LASIK, LASEK?

Now you can experience better vision the Claris way — with our newest and most exclusive WaveLight Refractive Suite, which includes the Alcon WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser, the WaveNet server and FS200and Contoura® Vision.

The WaveLight® Refractive Suite was designed with efficiency in mind and is the most expedient refractive surgery platform available in the US. Claris’s valued customers will now have permanent access to this cutting edge laser technology.



The Alcon WaveLight® EX500, Excimer Laser is the highest quality you can get in Wavefront Optimization (WFO). With the newest addition of Contoura® Vision, patients can further improve visual results with topography-guided treatment. With this unique system an individual eye mapping is performed prior to surgery to identify any small irregularities in the patient’s cornea. Irregularities can affect vision quality, contrast sensitivity, and night vision. Wavefront-optimized surgeries offer the most optimal outcomes.

WFO with the Wavelight Ex500 allows more people to become candidates for laser vision correction because of the increased treatment range for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. All Claris WFO treatments with our exclusive new Alcon WaveLight Ex500 Excimer Laser no longer require patients to have to go through Wavescan analysis.

  • The innovative engineering of the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser integrates many new functions for fast, safe, and reliable refractive laser treatments. Its design has been ergonomically optimized to combine it with the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser also used exclusively at Claris Eye care & Surgery.
  • The WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser is the only excimer laser to operate at 500 Hz, with an average treatment time of approximately 1.4 seconds per diopter1
  • The WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser is the fastest femtosecond laser available in the US, with a standard flap creation time of approximately 6 seconds.
