STREAMLIGHT, the latest upgraded version of LASIK, is now available in Spanish Eye Clinic.
Streamlight EX500 Excimer Laser is the latest software enhancement from Alcon to provide eye surgeons and patients a more comfortable and efficient LASIK experience. It is especially used for patients who are not able to have the traditional Lasik Flap that is required as a surface treatment for Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) or Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK).
PRK is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. On the other hand, LASEK is an eye surgery that combines the benefits of LASIK and PRK. LASEK eye surgery is used to treat astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness.
The above-mentioned procedures involve the surgeon mainly reshaping the superficial cells of the cornea of the eye and the laser doing the rest of the work. However, in STREAMLIGHT, the laser does the entire procedure itself, wherein all the surgeon does is put a separating device between the lids and the laser removes the top layer of cells while the laser does the ablation profile.
The beauty of STREAMLIGHT, just like Transepithelial PRK photorefractive keratectomy is that it is now essentially a one-stop shop for an improved vision because the laser does everything. The previous way involves lasering the top layer of the cells off first then reloading onto the software program the ablation profile (which can take up to a minute or so), and then doing the laser for the ablation profile so the STREAMLIGHT laser streams everything efficiently and smoothly.

The eye specialists from Spanish Eye Clinic were all so patient and caring; they made the vision procedure very comfortable with Streamlight. Now, I see better than I ever can remember. Having glasses since 10 years old, it is a great feeling to be finally lens free.
This was an amazing process! I’m glad that Spanish Eye Clinic has introduced me to the new Streamlight vision correction process. It felt so comfortable. It came highly recommended to do the treatment here and I’ll surely recommend them to my own friends and family!
I am very pleased with my whole experience at Spanish Eye Clinic in Dubai. Everyone was very caring and professional. I especially liked the fact that they really made sure if Streamlight was right for me prior to the treatment. It made me feel confident I would get the best care and results possible. And I believe I have. Thank you for the most wonderful experience!
