Integrating data collected by the WaveScan WaveFront System, the STAR S4 IR utilizes these exclusive VISX technologies to deliver precision custom ablations
Iris Registration (IR): The first FDA-approved, fully automated, non-contact method of alignment of the correct CustomVue treatment to the corneal site
Variable Spot Scanning (VSS): Variable beam sizes from as small as 0.65 mm up to 6.5 mm scanned over the treatment area, conserving tissue and optimizing treatment times
Variable Repetition Rate (VRR): VRR delivers treatment at varying repetition rates, optimizing treatment time
ActiveTrak 3-D Active Eye Tracking: Captures all 3 dimensions of intra-operative eye movements—no dilation required
ActiveTrak Automatic Centering: Locates, and then automatically sets the treatment center to the center of the pupil.
The laser we use for placing the vision correction on the cornea is the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System. The VISX STAR platform’s heritage of dependability and performance is well known. The STAR S4 IR from VISX has taken that reputation to an even higher level. Our latest excimer laser system represents the most advanced laser technology platform available today.
