Laser Vision correction has come a long way since its inception. The parameters of corrections that can be treated today were just a dream a few years ago. A good correction has become an exact personalized treatment for each eye. At Rand Eye Institute, we are dedicated to being up to date with the latest FDA-approved technology. This is the reason why we utilize our Star S4 IR Excimer Laser System and iDesign 2.11 Advanced Wavescan Studio System – the finest technology in laser vision correction.Up until a few years ago, an ophthalmologist used your eyeglass prescription to determine your treatment. iDesign technology has revolutionized laser vision correction by providing a detailed map of the surface of the eye plus information on how well your cornea and lens refract light.
The iDesign system scans your cornea to provide information on the eye’s low order aberrations (myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism), and high order aberrations (personal characteristics of an eye that cause halos, glare, and poor night vision). Consequently, the surgeon, now, has the full spectrum of refractive errors that need to be corrected to provide excellent visual outcomes. The iDesign system and technology are called wavefront integrated vision correction. This system collects 1,200 data points of your eye. Hence, making the treatment 25 times more accurate than just checking your vision and glass prescription.
The detailed iDesign map is then sent to the Star S4 IR Excimer Laser System. This detailed map provides all the information for the excimer laser to know where and how to sculpt the cornea for best visual outcomes. No two eyes are the same. Tiny personal characteristics in your cornea (like your fingerprint) create visual errors. These characteristics can only be measured with the iDesign system.
Our mission at Rand Eye Institute is to provide our patients with the best possible visual outcome. iDesign technology allows us to achieve an even higher degree of vision.
