LASIK with "Iris Tracker"
The new eye tracker presents many benefits to our patients and makes LASIK safer than ever before. Our office is the only facility in the state of Florida to offer this state of the art technology and one of 25 in the country.
Eyetracking allows lasers used during LASIK surgery to compensate for eye movements during the procedure, thus adding an important level of assurance. However, no eyetracker has been able to adjust for subtle rotations of the eye that occur during the laser treatment – that is until now!
- This new eyetracker locks on to the eye’s unique iris pattern just before the laser treatment begins, and then monitors the pattern throughout the procedure. When rotation of the iris is detected during the treatment the direction of the laser pulses is nearly instantaneously adjusted accordingly. No other laser in the US does this.
- This ensures that each laser pulse of the LASIK treatment is delivered to its intended location on the cornea.
