VISX STAR S4 EXCIMER LASER SYSTEM
People all over the world place their confidence in the safety and precision of VISX technology. VISX excimer lasers have been used to successfully treat millions of eyes in the U.S. and around the world.
This laser features variable spot beam technology and an eye tracking system that actively follows the tiniest motions of your eye in all three dimensions, capturing more than 99.4 percent of eye movement.
It tracks your natural pupil and doesn’t require your eye to be dilated like other laser systems, so you can relax during your LASIK treatment knowing the procedure will be delivered accurately. The VISX CustomVue is an individualized laser vision correction procedure that is Wavescan driven. This enables Dr. Crews to measure and correct imperfections that are unique to each individual’s vision that could not have been measured before. Wavescan technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce an individual’s eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods used for glasses and contact lenses.
