Because our eyes are as unique as our fingerprints, we each have a distinctive “map.” The first step is to create a 3-D analysis of the imperfections of your eye. Twenty five times more precise than conventional measurements used for glasses and contact lenses, the system measures and corrects errors that are otherwise not detected.
The procedure uses an ultra-fast iFS® Femtosecond Laser, built from a legacy of innovative IntraLase® Technology. The femtosecond laser creates a thin flap customized to your unique eye shape, to prepare the cornea for treatment.
Based on the digital information from your personalized eye map, an ultra-precise STAR S4 IR® Excimer Laser is used to gently reshape the cornea to the desired curvature. When the flap is put back into place, you’re done!
