Until now, your treatment was based on diagnostic technology similar to that used for the prescription of eye glasses or contact lenses. However, with New View Laser Eye’s addition of the WavePrint™ System by VISX, we can produce a precise and more detailed analysis of your vision and provide you with a more personalized approach to laser vision correction.
CustomVue™ also known as WaveScan technology, is the new standard in laser vision correction providing your Personal Best Vision. WaveScan technology was originally developed for use in high-powered telescopes to reduce distortions when viewing distant objects in space. This technology has now been applied to laser vision correction. WaveScan technology captures the unique imperfections in each individual’s vision providing 25 times more precise standard measurements then used for glasses or contacts. The WavePrint System allows Dr. Griffiths to personalize your vision correction. It gives her treatment options that are truly personalized to your unique vision. The system includes the WavePrint Map which reveals the way your entire optical system processes light providing a new level of diagnostic information previously unavailable. It has become the gold standard in vision measurement.
There are two parts to the VISX WavePrint System. First, it includes a diagnostic device that maps the entire optical path of your eye. This WavePrint™ Map, called the “fingerprint of your vision,” provides the doctor with precise and detailed information about your vision. Secondly, the WavePrint System incorporates the STAR S4™ laser from VISX which has two exclusive features: Variable Spot Scanning and 3D ActiveTrak™ technology.
- Variable Spot Scanning (VSS™) allows for a larger treatment area, up to 7mm pupil size, allowing the physician the ability to treat more patients especially when pupil size is a consideration. Variable beam sizes from as small as 0.65 mm up to 6.5 mm are scanned over the treatment area, conserving tissue and optimizing treatment times.
- 3D ActiveTrak automatically and instantaneously tracks the minute movement of your eye in all three dimensions during the laser treatment. This unique feature means you no longer have to hold your eye perfectly still because the treatment is precisely centered on your eye.
VISX CustomVue technology can be used
for patients having LASIK, PRK, or EpiLase.
