SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Horizon Eye Specialists & LASIK Center, the leading comprehensive eye care center in Arizona, today announces it has started offering custom LASIK surgery, powered by iDESIGN®. The iDESIGN Advanced WaveScan Studio System generates a high-definition scan of the eye that is 25 times more precise than traditional LASIK methods.
In the past, LASIK surgeons had to rely on glasses or contact prescriptions to determine a treatment plan for patients. However, an individual’s prescription doesn’t tell the whole story. By serving as the “brain” of the LASIK procedure, the iDESIGN® system measures and maps the irregularities of the eye in order to achieve a truly custom LASIK procedure. This results in a surgery tailored to suit very specific vision needs. The iDESIGN system is considered to be at the very pinnacle of modern custom LASIK technology.
“At Horizon, we’re always on top of the latest technology and research into laser - and other - eye surgery techniques, and iDESIGN® is a system we’re extremely excited about,” says Dr. Robert McCulloch at Horizon Eye Specialists & LASIK Center. “This advanced technology actually captures 1,200 data points in a quick three-second scan, making its accuracy unmatched for helping patients see 20/20 - or better. After performing more than 20,000 refractive procedures in my career, the iDESIGN® system has gained my trust and stamp of approval.”
The iLASIK technology used in conjunction with the iDESIGN® system has an exceptional track record, used successfully over 20 million times. In the FDA clinical trial of LASIK powered by the iDESIGN® system, patients reported significant improvements in all measures of visual functioning and clarity of vision. Furthermore, 96 percent of patients were willing to recommend the procedure to their friends and family, and 91 percent of patients responded as being “satisfied” to” very satisfied” with their vision.
As everyone’s eyes are completely unique, the smallest imperfections can create distinct visual problems, which are impossible to detect without the special equipment of the iDESIGN® system. A more accurate system means less risk involved, less recovery time after the surgery and more time seeing life the way it’s meant to be seen.
