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.
Why insist on the iFS 150?
The iFS 150 takes Intralase laser eye surgery to a whole new standard of speed and control. The iFS 150 supercedes the FS60 used by most other European providers and offers:
There’s an iFS 150 at an Optical Express near you. With more treatment clinics than any other provider in the UK and Ireland, you won’t be far away from this unmatched technology.
At Optical Express, both our iLASIK and LASEK treatments may be enhanced with iDesign, revolutionary wavefront diagnostic technology that can detect even the most minute imperfections of your eye, allowing your surgeon to customise your treatment to the exact specification of your eyes.
iDesign captures over 1,200 micro readings of your eye prescription, five times more than previous wavefront technology. To put this in context, for glasses and contact lenses only one reading is measured.
Using advanced, high-definition, wavefront-guided technology to take a one-of-a-kind snapshot of your eye, iDesign collects five different measurements at the push of a button.
This 3-D image is a highly accurate ‘blueprint’ of your eye, detailing every minute characteristic, allowing your surgeon to generate a customised treatment plan, unique to you. This information is then transferred to the computer-guided laser to correct these imperfections, thus correcting your vision.
Not only does iDesign give us the ability to correct your eye prescription to a higher accuracy than your glasses and contact lenses, resulting in better vision, but we can now treat more complex and higher prescriptions than ever before.
