The safety of LASIK primarily involves determining whether a patient is a good surgical candidate in the first place. The fact is that not everyone qualifies as a good candidate for LASIK. That’s why it’s so important before you LASIK to choose a surgeon that you trust to help you make the right decision.  Choosing LASIK at The Eye Associates means choosing doctors committed to safety, comfort, accuracy and the most advanced technology available.

Why The Eye Associates chose the VISX Star 4 Laser
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY – VISX® remains the industry leader in quality and innovation, and the VISX Star 4 Laser that we use at The Eye Associates adds a new level of diagnostic information to insure superior surgical outcomes. Our in-house laser center controls temperature and humidity; key elements important to good surgical results. In addition, our skilled technicians adhere to strict sterile requirements and are uniquely and exclusively dedicated to eye procedures.

The VISX Star 4 Laser has the following unique safety features:

ActiveTrak  3D Eye-Tracking – We often hear patients say that their biggest concern is the fear of moving their eye during the LASIK procedure. RELAX…we have you tracked. The Visx Star 4 laser has ActiveTrak 3 D Eye Tracking that detects and continuously compensates for eye movements, virtually eliminating any fear of human error.

VISX Iris Registration – Iris Registration takes a wavescan-generated picture of your unique iris and transfers it to the laser. The reason this is important is because when the patient lays down for their laser treatment, sometimes the eye will rotate. VISX Star 4 Laser uses the wavescan photo to compare with your iris and automatically compensate for any rotation, thereby ensuring an accurate outcome and eliminate the worry of errors.

VISX CustomVue WaveScan – WaveFront technology, developed from NASA space technology, allows us to capture and correct your eye’s unique imperfections with 25 times more precision than could previously be detected using standard measurements for glasses. It also has been shown to improve night vision in some patients.

VISX Exclusive SmartBeam – The SmartBeam technology adjusts the laser beam size according to treatment, minimizing the amount of corneal tissue that needs to be removed and reducing healing time.
