Shroff Eye Hospital is India's First Eye Hospital accredited by the Joint Commission International (USA) since 2006. Shroff Eye is also India's first and only Wavelight Concerto 500 Hz LASIK center. Shroff Eye has stood for excellence in eye care since 1919. A firm commitment to quality is at the heart of all services provided at our centers at Bandra(W) and Marine Drive, Mumbai.
The world’s most advanced technology for customized laser correction – the Wavefront 400Hz Technology was launched at PerfectWave LASIK Centre at Shroff Eye Hospital in Mumbai.The world’s most advanced technology for customized laser correction – the Wavefront 400Hz Technology was launched at PerfectWave LASIK Centre at Shroff Eye Hospital in Mumbai.
The latest in laser technologies for refractive correction, the Wavefront 400Hz Technology is equipped with a completely computer controlled laser. This provides patients the highest level of safety, accuracy and reliability available in laser technology. Further, the technology is fully customized to the individual patient’s eye. The 400Hz technology has the most sensitive eye tracker in the world to ensure perfectly accurate and well-centered treatments, with absolutely no side effects or possibilities of errors. With the launch of the Wavefront 400Hz technology, people in India will have access to technology and precision available only at select centers in the world. Of the various technology options that we had available, we chose the 400Hz Wavefront technology since it is very safe and error-free. Further it allows patients with a much higher eye power to be treated safely and also can correct poorly done laser techniques, says Dr. Anand Shroff, Chief Surgeon, PerfectWave LASIK Centre and renowned Eye-care specialist.
Dr. Shroff elaborated on the technical advantages of the 400 Hz Wavefront and said “The eye is one of the most sensitive part of the body and we often treat it as a commodity choosing the treatment that is cheapest. Patient awareness is critical to better treatment and it will be our continued effort to educate the people about advantages of using the Wavefront 400 Hz as against using older laser technologies for corrective treatment for the eye.”
The Wavefront 400 Hz technology has treats the eye at 400 times each second, with a computer controlled eye tracking mechanism. The Wavefront 400 Hz stands a head over the older laser versions available in India. The older and discount lasers use antiquated technologies like manual eye tracking low frequency of treatment, larger beam width, putting the patient to the risk of errors.
The Wavefront 400 Hz technology, on the other hand, maps the cornea at 168 individual points through an unique Abberometer. This mapping helps identify the corrections required to compensate for the refractive problems in the internal optics of the eye. The cornea is then treated by small-spot laser beams to compensate for the correction making the treatment completely customized and error-free for the patients. Often, it has been seen that treatment with the Wavefront 400Hz improves vision and contrast to super -nominal limits.
