LASIK is one of the most common refractive procedures in the world. It has delivered successful results for decades, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve it.
New technology allows surgeons to increase the likelihood of successful LASIK outcomes. That’s why at Bausch Eye Associates, we use the iDESIGN Refractive Studio for LASIK procedures.
What is the iDESIGN Refractive Studio?
iDESIGN is the newest LASIK technology available. It is the most accurate laser vision correction system in the world.
The iDESIGN Refractive Studio is a best-in-class topography-integrated, wavefront-guided diagnostic device. It guides your surgeon through your LASIK procedure, ensuring the highest chance of positive results.
The iDESIGN system combines multiple imaging and diagnostic tools, which make it more accurate and customizable. It measures your eye more accurately than any other LASIK technology to enhance your LASIK experience.
Why Use the iDesign Refractive Studio?
LASIK technology is continually developing, and new equipment and methods are constantly available to LASIK surgeons. Using new technology allows your surgeon to provide you with the best LASIK results.
The iDESIGN System is now the leading LASIK technology. It incorporates other LASIK technology into one seamless system.
Combining technology allows it to produce better results than other stand-alone LASIK systems because of how customizable it is. It reads the exact size and shape of your eye during your procedure.
That means your surgeon knows the precise location and depth to use the laser to reshape your cornea. iDESIGN can even account for minor pathologies in your eye like scar tissue or other irregularities.
This precision and customization give you the sharpest distance vision possible from LASIK. It also reduces other common LASIK side-effects like halos, glare, and dry eye.
The precision the iDESIGN system provides makes your LASIK procedure and recovery time shorter as well. The measurements of your eye take three seconds to complete, and to reshape the cornea only takes a few minutes per eye.
Since the laser reshaping is so exact, you may notice an improvement in your vision an hour after your procedure. Most patients find that they can return to their everyday routine the day after LASIK.
How Does the iDESIGN System Work?
During LASIK, the first step in the process is to numb your eyes with anesthetic eyedrops. After your eyes are numb, your surgeon creates a map of your cornea using the iDESIGN system.
The software achieves this by measuring the inside and outside of your eye and the edges of your cornea. The iDESIGN system measures over 1200 data points in your eye to create this map, all in three seconds.
That many points of data allow it to create the most customized LASIK procedure possible. This three-dimensional map guides your surgeon throughout the procedure.
The map shows them precisely how to remove the smallest amount of corneal tissue needed for vision correction. No one else in the world will receive the same LASIK treatment as you because of this customization based on your eyes.
Who is the iDESIGN Refractive Studio for?
The iDESIGN refractive studio system is for anyone who wants to undergo LASIK. As long as you meet all the LASIK candidacy requirements, you can get LASIK with the iDESIGN system.
But the iDESIGN system is not just for people who can get LASIK with any LASIK equipment. The iDESIGN system can treat people with more significant astigmatism than other technology can.
You may be able to undergo LASIK at Bausch Eye Associates even if your astigmatism is too large for treatment elsewhere. Take our Free Online LASIK Self-Test to find out if LASIK is right for you!
