Excimer Laser

Being a very organized and dedicated person, I was entitled in April 2009 to be responsible for the proper functioning and callibration of the Allegretto Wave-Eye Q Excimer Laser System. I eagerly accepted this challenge by learning as much as possible both from the Instruction Manual (English version) and from the medical and Service staff.

The EyeTracker, Fluence and Scanner Tests

My responsabilities were:

  • performing the monthly and daily tests and callibration: Micrometer, EyeTracker, Fluence, Scanner tests, Energy Check , Gas Change;
  • introducing patients data into the laser’s notebook and verifying it with the surgeon;
  • adjusting lights and controls throughout the surgery by operating the laser’s notebook and control panel;
  • assisting surgeons in performing the Define Center procedure in cases where the patient’s visual axis does not match the pupil’s geometrical center;
  • giving indications to patients according to each surgery phase;
  • creating and completing additional archive reports as my personal evidence of energy values evolution, service interventions,
  • consumable requirements and managing errors;
  • supervising the device’s safety cleaning: I realised that even the tiniest aspect matters, I was very fond of this performant machine, being a technological wonder for me that needs proper care and maintenance;
  • maintaining the relationship with the Service Department;
  • ordering consumables;
  • training replacement personnel to operate the laser system after my departure to Holland in November 2011.

Being involved in the Laser Excimer surgery activity, I was tempted to photograph this machine and merge pictures to mirror the patient’s point of view. I used it as a .ppt presentation background in 2011.

Several of my PC graphics were connected to the Excimer Laser for advertising purposes:
