Advanced CustomVue combines a number of technology innovations into a laser vision correction procedure individually customized to each eye.
Your eyes are as unique as your fingerprint. Advanced CustomVue addresses your eyes' distinct characteristics using the WaveScan WaveFront System and VISX Technology's exclusive mathematical rules (Fourier algorithms) to capture each eye's unique imperfections with far greater accuracy than ever before possible. Like a topographical map showing the surface features of a landscape, WaveScan Technology creates a detailed map of your eye's optical system. The system translates that information into completely personalized digital treatment instructions and sends them directly to the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser System.
The Advanced CustomVue Procedure provides a new level of precision in treatment alignment with VISX Iris Registration, the first FDA-approved, fully automated method of aligning treatment. It's normal for the pupil to shift positions from the time an eye is measured to the time of treatment. Iris registration technology centers the treatment correctly, regardless of the amount of time between wavefront measurement and laser treatment and independent of changes in the pupil center from measurement to treatment.
The VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser system represents the most advanced laser technology platform available today. Integrating data collected by the WaveScan WaveFront System, the STAR S4 IR utilizes VISX Iris Registration and other exclusive VISX technologies to deliver advanced precision and enhanced safety. The Advanced CustomVue Procedure is not affected by the patient's eye movement during treatment and minimizes correction to only those areas of the cornea that require reshaping.
