LASIK: The standard of care… performed to a new standard
Eye Care Professionals offers patients the next generation of personalized LASIK treatment, the iDESIGN® Refractive Studio from Johnson & Johnson Vision. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the iDESIGN® Refractive Studio is the only system to use topography integrated, wavefront-guided technology, which allows our doctors to take a precise measurement of the eye, inside and out, to deliver a LASIK procedure personalized to the individual patient. This technology is approved for people with myopia, hyperopia, mixed astigmatism, and for Monovision in presbyopic myopic patients.
The first of its kind in the U.S., the technology addresses the unique imperfections of a patient’s eyes by analyzing the entire visual system. This new level of patient personalization begins with five measurements taken in a single, one-click capture sequence. Each treatment plan begins with a wavefront analysis to measure how light travels inside the eye, detailing the imperfections in a patient’s vision. The iDESIGN® Refractive Studio then scans the outside surface of the eye, measuring and analyzing tiny variations in curvature and elevation. The combination of the two measurements delivers a one-of-a-kind LASIK procedure tailored for each patient.
iDESIGN® System is the only available LASIK technology platform indicated for Wavefront-guided Monovision LASIK in presbyopic myopic patients. Monovision is a procedure designed for patients over 40 years old who are experiencing blurry near vision due to aging of their eyes. 96% of patients reported a decrease in wearing glasses six months after Monovision LASIK.
