Let's quickly review what LASIK entails...
How LASIK Works
LASIK Technology Glossary
Femtosecond lasers are used by ophthalmologists like Dr. Montgomery to create corneal flaps during LASIK. Femtosecond lasers get their name from the fact that they emit pulses of laser energy that last for only femtoseconds (a femtosecond is one quadrillionth of a second).
Excimer lasers are the lasers that ophthalmologists use to reshape corneal tissue during LASIK. Excimer lasers emit ultraviolet radiation, which causes the corneal tissue to vaporize into the air. This means that excimer lasers can precisely modify the cornea without harming the remaining tissue.

Now for a deeper dive into our favorite LASIK technologies...
The Pentacam suite of imaging technologies has been described as "the Gold Standard" in ocular screening. Pentacam machines are like MRI machines for your eyes. They are completely safe, contactless, and painless. Plus, it only takes a few seconds for Dr. Montgomery to use the system to take measurements of your eyes. For LASIK patients, in particular, Pentacam offers numerous benefits, including:
- Pentacam allows Dr. Montgomery to examine an incredibly detailed scan of your corneal structure, so he can easily diagnose your refractive error and determine if laser vision correction is right for you.
- The Pentacam software provides Dr. Montgomery with all the information he needs to plan every detail of your LASIK procedure.
Ziemer LDV Femtosecond Laser
The FEMTO LDV Z from Ziemer releases energy pulses at a higher rate than any other femtosecond laser on the market. Dr. Montgomery uses this groundbreaking technology to create the corneal flap during LASIK surgery. Here are just a few of the many ways that patients benefit from the use of this laser:
- The FEMTO LDV Z allows Dr. Montgomery to create a corneal flap with a wider diameter than is typical for LASIK surgery. This improves his ability to correct your refractive error and results in better vision, especially night vision.
- Because this femtosecond laser emits energy at such a high frequency, the flap creation only takes a few seconds, and the flap can be made thinner and smoother than ever before.
Alcon WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser
The Alcon WaveLight EX500 excimer laser has led the field in laser vision correction for close to a decade. Dr. Montgomery is proud that his eye care centers in Northglenn and Westminster feature this advanced equipment because it allows him to perform LASIK procedures that are as fast and accurate as possible. Benefits of the Alcon WaveLight EX500 include:
- The machine takes your unique refractive error into account, allowing Dr. Montgomery to accurately treat most degrees of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
- The EX500 emits 500 laser pulses a second, so LASIK can be faster than it's ever been.
- The technology includes an effective eye-tracking system, so the laser will target the appropriate areas of your cornea even if your eye was to move unexpectedly.
"I couldn't be happier with the outcome."
Dr Montgomery has been my opthalmologist for several years, I highly recommend him. He always takes the time to answer all my questions. He is compassionate to my concerns re eye surgery and I have grown to trust and respect him alot. His office staff is very friendly, professional and efficient. I had a concern once where I called the office and without hesitation I was told I could come in immediately. I can't say enough good things about Dr Montgomery and his staff. I hope to have a long relationship with them.View on Google
