Q:

Why would a patient choose to upgrade to the 3D procedure? Is the procedure offered for $2499 an inferior procedure?

A:

Hi there. I think you are referring to the upgrade to the Wavelight Allegertto laser. For low to moderate amounts of nearsightedness, there is really no difference and it is not an "inferior procedure." For higher amounts of correction, use of the "upgraded" laser starts making a difference as it is considerably faster (one of the fastest in the world) and the speed starts making a difference in accuracy. That laser also cancels out the laser created aberrations and those become important in higher corrections. That is why the cutoff exists. For lower corrections, it's probably just overkill and we usually don't recommend paying the extra amount.
