Advanced CustomVue Technologies

The WaveScan WaveFront System

The WaveScan WaveFront System is an FDA-approved advancement in wavefront technology that delivers the highest available resolution of your wavefront correction. WaveScan Technology—originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space—has now been applied to laser vision correction, to identify unique imperfections in the eye. In fact, WaveScan Digital Technology identifies and measures imperfections in a patient's eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses. Your doctor uses these precise WaveScan Measurements to plan the Advanced CustomVue Treatment delivered by the STAR S4 IR Laser.

The STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser

STAR Excimer Lasers have been used to perform more than 10 million FDA approved laser vision procedures worldwide, making it the most widely used laser available. The STAR S4 IR Laser utilizes advanced technologies such as:

  • The ActiveTrak 3-D Eye Tracker which actively follows the tiniest motions of your eye in all three dimensions, enhancing safety and accuracy.
  • The ActiveTrak Automatic Centering allows your doctor to precisely identify the center of the pupil and keep the laser centered to within 50 microns (approximately the width of a human hair), even if your eye moves.
  • Variable Spot Scanning incorporates a sophisticated array of seven beam diameters ranging from 0.65 to 6.5mm to give you a personalized treatment quickly and efficiently. Variable Spot Scanning and Variable Repetition Rate offer your doctor greater flexibility in developing a more customized laser vision procedure.
