LASIK and PRK provide perfect vision as a result of eximer laser technology. Eximer lasers use energy that reshapes the cornea by removing ultra-fine layers of cells. It does so without any heat or collateral injury to the remaining tissue.
Earlier designs of eximer lasers did not take into account 3-dimensional rotations and movements of the eye. This resulted in treatments that were imprecise and often led to visual aberrations that could degrade vision.
One of the latest designs in eximer laser technology is the VISX STAR S4™, with ActiveTrak™ and Variable Spot Scanning (VSS™). ActiveTrak™ was the first FDA-approved tracker to track eye movements in 3-D, along the X, Y and Z axes. In doing so, it detects and compensates for a persons microscopic eye movements by guiding the laser beam to keep the treatment centered at all times. This provides pinpoint accuracy in patients’ procedures, and does so with maximum efficiency that decreases the amount of time needed for the treatment. Over two million people have benefited from laser vision correction with the Visx® laser.
Dr. Kieval uses the VISX STAR S4™ with ActiveTrak™ exclusively for all LASIK and PRK procedures.
