iLASIK is not a new technology, and over 17 million people have undergone the procedure. In the United States, the procedure is the most common elective vision procedure, and has been approved by NASA and all branches of the U.S. military. This technology has been gaining popularity in recent years, and the iLasik procedure is no different. It is a safe procedure, requiring little to no pain after the procedure, and patients experience minimal discomfort afterward.
The technology uses wavefront guided technology to map the eye and deliver personalized treatment. The iDESIGN Refractive Studio 2.0 creates a 3D model of each eye, identifying imperfections and details of the eye that have previously been unnoticed. The resulting map provides the surgeon with a personalized visual fingerprint, allowing them to custom-tailor the procedure to the exact curvature of each patient’s eye.
