VISX lasers are the most popular lasers used in the laser eye surgery industry, currently treating over 60% of patients in the USA and proven to deliver safe, accurate and precise results.
The VISX STAR platform’s heritage of dependability and performance is well known in the industry. The STAR S4 IR from VISX has taken that reputation to an even higher level.
The VISX STAR S4 IR works by emitting a gentle, cool laser beam that reshapes the cornea. The precision of the VISX STAR S4 IR laser means that it removes less tissue from the cornea per dioptre of prescription than most other lasers currently in use.
Each pulse of the VISX STAR S4 IR laser eliminates 0.25 microns of tissue – that’s one thousandth of a millimetre, which is the same as removing 1/200th of a human hair or 1/39,000,000th of an inch in four billionths of a second!
All Optical Express lasers employ advanced eye tracking technology in order to ensure the highest standard of vision for our patients following the procedure. A 3-D eye tracker guides the beam of the laser as it moves over the cornea, ensuring that only the section of the cornea requiring treatment receives reshaping.
The 3-D tracker also follows the movement of the eye if it shifts so the laser remains on course, enabling a precise and completely safe treatment.
Sportsmen and celebrities, including Tiger Woods and Cindy Crawford have elected to use the VISX laser for their own surgeries.
