The wonderful world of iDesign

Enjoying clear vision can have a hugely positive impact on your day-to-day life, which is why you want to achieve optimum results when opting for laser eye surgery. Just like your fingerprint, your eyes are completely unique to you, consisting of countless distinct characteristics and imperfections. This means that people with the same prescription will often still have differences in their vision, and that there isn’t necessarily a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to vision correction.

In order to target your unique visual imperfections more effectively, iDesign can be used to deliver a customised treatment option, removing your prescription 25 times more accurately than glasses or contact lenses. It’s an addition to the principal types of laser eye surgery that Optical Express offers, and can provide even sharper, clearer visual results.

How does iDesign work?

iDesign is an innovative system which produces a highly-detailed 3D map of the eye and enhances your treatment. Capturing over 1,200 microscopic eye imperfections, your personalised iDesign map is as unique as your fingerprint. This technology allows the surgeon carrying out your laser eye surgery procedure to customise your treatment 25 times more accurately than a standard prescription for glasses or contact lenses.

Only one reading is taken when measuring your prescription for glasses or contact lenses, whereas the iDesign high-definition technology collects five different measurements. What’s more, iDesign, prescriptions are measured to 0.01 Dioptres, while glasses and contact lenses only measure prescriptions to 0.25 Dioptres.

The innovative iDesign technology does not only enable us to correct eye prescriptions to a higher degree of accuracy than glasses or contact lenses, but it also allows us to treat more complex cases than ever before. Even patients who have previously been told they are unsuitable for eye surgery may now be able to benefit from laser eye surgery with iDesign.

How do I get started with laser eye surgery and iDesign?

You can discuss iDesign at a free, no-obligation consultation where your eyes will be thoroughly examined and the best treatment option will be advised. It can be applied to the principal types of laser vision correction that Optical Express offers, being LASIK and LASEK surgery, with iDesign LASIK and iDesign LASEK surgery.

Recommended for most patients, it’s essential for some, but suitability can often depend on your prescription and pupil size. Book a free consultation at your local Optical Express clinic today to find out more and get started on your journey towards clear vision.
