Iris Registration

photo-irisIn order to achieve optimized outcomes for laser vision correction patients, accurate alignment is essential to optimizing customized Wavefront-guided procedures. The VISX™ Iris Registration Technology is a revolutionary method of aligning the treatment to the cornea and providing the most precise laser alignment accuracy to date. Previously, physicians used manual methods to align the treatment to the eye.

“Unlike manual methods, Iris Registration Technology automatically aligns the laser to the cornea,” says Dr. Falkenberg. “This allows me to center the treatment accurately, so that a patient’s breathing or other normal movements won’t affect the treatment.” As a result, Iris Registration Technology can provide potentially better outcomes for our patients. “VISX Iris Registration Technology makes it easier than ever to achieve accurate alignment with a fully automated, touch-free method of measuring and marking the eye.”

“The WaveScan test is a part of the initial consultation. It captures unique imperfections in each individual’s vision and is 25-times more precise than standard measurements for glasses or contact lenses,” says Dr. Falkenberg. “WaveScan technology produces a detailed map of the eye-much like a fingerprint. No two maps are alike-in fact, each treatment is tailored to the unique characteristics of the individual’s eye,” says Dr. Falkenberg. “Then, the WaveScan digital information is transferred to the laser, providing a new level of precision and accuracy, and providing potentially better results.”
