The LaserScan LSX® Excimer Laser Print E-mail

LaserScan LSX Excimer LaserThe LaserScan LSX® Flying Spot Excimer Laser provides high-repetition preprogrammed software to precisely guide a 0.8mm flying spot beam of light that gently reshapes the curvature of the cornea, thus producing a smooth, polished corneal surface. The LaserScan LSX® offers precise, accurate, and most importantly, smooth tissue removal.

In broad, general terms, refractive surgery means the shape, or curvature of the cornea (clear front portion) of the eye will be altered to allow light rays to converge in a clear point of focus on the retina. This reshaping is commonly accomplished with the excimer laser.

LaserSight Technologies, Inc. is the originator of the gentle touch, precision "flying spot" scanning laser. The LaserScan LSX® Excimer Laser represents the latest generation in excimer technology.

LaserScan LSXSpeed and Precision

LaserScan LSX® utilizes an advanced, high-repetition, super-gaussian 0.8mm flying spot precision beam that creates a smooth, polished corneal stroma bed through the laser's preprogrammed overlapping software algorithm.



  • Provides smooth ablation surfaces
  • Eliminates irregularities found in wide-beam systems
  • Lessening regression by inducing less healing response
  • By inducing less healing response, regression is lessened
  • Low acoustic energy at the cornea (1mJ) creates greater patient friendly experience
  • Promotes communication between physician and patient during treatment

With the combination of larger symmetrical ablation patterns and larger optical and treatment zones, the effects of glare and halos are often minimized.
