VISX is at the cutting edge of
laser eye surgery technology. Their lasers are the most popular among eye surgeons in the
United States, thanks to their unparalleled accuracy. Dr. Mark Hornfeld
of Vista Laser Vision uses VISX lasers for his surgical treatments so
his patients get the best results possible. Here are just a few of the
benefits of using VISX technology:
Precise Eye Movement Adjustments
One of the biggest challenges eye surgeons face when performing LASIK or
other laser eye surgeries is eye movement. It is very difficult for patients
to keep their eyes still for the entire procedure. Furthermore, the eyes
move on their own when patients lay down for the procedure, so the eyes
are in different positions than they were during the pre-surgical exam
and scan. VISX lasers detect eye movement and make adjustments so that
treatment is more precise.
Less Corneal Tissue Removal
LASIK surgery, the cornea is cut back and some of the tissue is removed. Thanks to variable
spot beam technology, surgeons can now remove less corneal tissue. This
is because they can deliver more targeted treatment. The result is a lower
risk of side effects, faster treatment times, and faster recoveries.
Each patient’s iris is so unique that some high-tech companies are
using iris scans for security purposes. Some VISX lasers are equipped
with similar technology that lets doctors recognize their patients’
unique irises so treatment can be as accurate as possible. The iris recognition
software also detects if the patient sitting in front of the laser has
the same irises as those on the treatment plan the surgeon is about to
use. If the irises don’t match, the laser won’t function,
removing operator error from the equation.
