How does the VISX Star S4 IR® Excimer Laser and WaveScan WaveFront® Diagnostic System work?
Dr. Orazio L. Giliberti, FACS uses the VISX Star S4 IR® Excimer Laser to deliver an individually customized laser vision correction experience.
- Using the advanced WaveScan WaveFront® diagnostic system, a computerized map of the eye will be created and entered into the VISX Star S4 IR® Excimer Laser.
- The laser system will then use the unique pattern of your eye to develop a customized treatment pattern.
- Dr. Giliberti ensures accurate and precise placement of the laser according to the exact specifications of the measurements and data points.
Giliberti Eye and Laser Center utilizes the WaveScan WaveFront® diagnostic system because it is 5 times more precise compared to conventional diagnostic technology!
Benefits of the VISX Star S4 IR® Excimer Laser
The VISX Star S4 IR® Excimer Laser uses exclusive technology features to achieve exceptional patient outcomes.
- The ActiveTrak Automatic Centering technology automatically locates and sets the treatment center to the center of the pupil.
- The ActiveTrak 3D Active Eye Tracking technology follows the tiniest eye motions in three dimensions to capture more than 99.4% of eye movements.
- The Iris Registration technology provides alignment accuracy and precise ablation placement. It automatically and correctly aligns and centers the treatment, and allows for re-registration in the event of intraoperative movement.
- The Variable Repetition Rate (VRR) varies the laser’s pulse rate during the procedure. This allows for optimized ablation time and minimizes the thermal impact on the cornea.
- The Variable Spot Scanning (VSS) incorporates a variety of laser pulse diameters to ensure an accurate match between target and ablation shapes. It also optimizes treatment times and efficiency.
