The iLASIK Procedure
The iLASIK procedure is an advanced FDA approved wavefront-guided blade free laser vision correction procedure. iLASIK features, for the first time, the industry's leading edge technologies and techniques in one premium procedure.
What conditions does iLASIK treat?
iLASIK is approved for a broad range of vision disorders including:
- mild to severe nearsightedness
- mild to moderate farsightedness
- All types of astigmatism
For those seeking a premium laser vision correction procedure that offers one of the highest safety profiles available, iLASIK procedure is the clear choice.
How does it work?
iLASIK has several key technologies that make a significant difference in the quality and consistency of visual outcomes.
The crown jewel of the customized iLASIK procedure is the Advanced CustomVue™ technology using the VISX™ Star S4 IR excimer laser system, WaveScan™ Wavefront 3-D Mapping along with Iris Registration.
WaveScan™ Wavefront 3-D Mapping: Waves of light precisely map the anatomy of your eye, identifying your unique visual "fingerprint". This allows your surgeon to custom tailor the patient's laser vision correction procedure to the exact curvature and microscopic hills and valleys of the eye.
IntraLase™ FS (femtosecond) Laser: Your measurements guide the computer-driven IntraLase™ FS (femtosecond) Laser technology using the WaveScan™ Wavefront. This creates a customized laser driven corneal flap with micro-precision, while simultaneously preparing an optical corneal surface below the flap for better visual outcomes.
Iris Registration (IR): Iris Registration provides a fully automated, non-contact, method of providing precise patient alignment and the WaveScan™ Wavefront measurements in preparation for the laser correction treatment.
This technology combination delivers truly customized vision correction
based on the unique refractive signature of your eye.
